Karen, a native of Southwest Georgia, is a highly accomplished insurance agent and proud member of the Albany Area Chamber of Commerce. With a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism from the University of Georgia, Karen brings a unique perspective to her role as a State Farm agent.

Having experienced State Farm's exceptional customer service firsthand after her personal home was hit by a severe wind event, Karen was inspired to open her own State Farm agency. Her early belief in the importance of life insurance, shaped by the loss of her father at a young age, drives her passion for helping others protect their families and assets.

Since the opening of her agency in January 2018, Karen has assembled a dedicated team of insurance professionals, including Brittany and Wanda, who have been by her side from the beginning. Their knowledge extends to a range of insurance services, including auto, renters, homeowners, business, and life insurance. Serving customers not only in Albany/Dougherty County but also in Dawson/Terrell, Leesburg/Lee, Camilla/Mitchell, Cairo/Grady, and beyond, Karen and her team are committed to providing personalized coverage options tailored to each customer's needs.

Recognized as one of Southwest Georgia's 40 Under 40, Karen's exceptional service and commitment to her community have earned her the title of The Insurance Agent by readers of the Albany Herald. Her agency is known for its unwavering dedication to customer satisfaction and comprehensive insurance needs.

Outside of her agency, Karen and her husband Jeff enjoy splitting their time between Dougherty and Terrell Counties. They cherish moments spent traveling and creating lasting memories with their family and children.

Contact Karen and her team today to experience the outstanding service that comes with State Farm insurance. Protect what matters most to you with an agent who truly cares.
