While State Farm Insurance may be a massive company, my office is local. With us the benefit of both worlds, the local plus national! The security of a financially sound company paired with the down-home knowledge of a Berkeley local to guide you through your insurance and financial services journey. I started my State Farm Agency in Berkeley in 1985. My degrees are from University of California, Berkeley, BA Music. University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana, MA Music. I regularly volunteer at Albany High School Music, using my skills on violin and viola.
