Ohio is such a great place to call home. I grew up in Willoughby, and attended Kent State University. Now I’m honored to be the local State Farm Insurance Agent for the communities of Lake, Geauga, Cuyahoga, Ashtabula and Trumbull Counties. I love being in and working in this great area. If you’re one of my neighbors in Chesterland, Willoughby, Kirtland ,Middlefield, Chardon, and Wickliffe, I’d love to sit down together and discuss how we can get you the coverage you need. I know first-hand how insurance can make a difference in someone’s life, and that’s why I’m so dedicated to offering exceptional service and support for all my customers. Whether you’re adding a car to your auto insurance policy, a first-time home buyer who needs comprehensive homeowner’s insurance, or someone looking for a life insurance plan that protects what matters most, I am here for you.

My background as an Athlete and coach taught me the importance of committing to your path and the power of collaboration. I bring those values to work with me every day and work hand-in-hand with my customers to make sure they’re ready to move toward their goals with confidence. Outside of the office, you can find me coaching youth sports, helping others in the community or spending time with my two Kids. I also love to spend time with family and friends.

I am a lifelong resident of Mentor and am happy to be working in the community I grew up in. I am a graduate of Mentor High School. When I am not in the office, I am spending time with my husband and my two sons, Anthony and Joseph. You can often find me on the sidelines cheering on the Mentor High School soccer and football teams. I love being part parent volunteer and helping the school and community.

I have 25 years of State Farm experience and I truly believe in the values of this great company. I love building new relationships with my customers, new and old. Nothing is better than helping our customers feel comfortable in their insurance decisions as life changes. Helping our community protect what means most is very important.

Office Associate

            A life-long resident of northeast Ohio and Lake County, I am happy to be serving the community in which I grew up. Born and raised in Willoughby, I am a proud graduate of South High, and attended Ashland University. My husband, Dave, and I still live in Willoughby with our 4 amazing daughters, and have been blessed to raise our girls in such a wonderful community, with great people. I love working with people and building relationships. As a parent of young adults, including a brand new teenage driver, I bring my own unique perspective to my work as a licensed agent for Dan Platzar State Farm.  My goal is to help each family feel confident that they are prepared for life’s changes and challenges, and to know that our family is here for their family.

            When I am not in the office or spending time with family, I can be found cheering on the Rebels at South High where I am a Cheer Coach, or working with young athletes of all ages at Panthers All Star Cheer, in Mentor.  Participating in a number of sports growing up, I learned the value of teamwork, discipline, and perseverance in striving to reach shared goals. These lessons have served me well throughout my life, and I enjoy sharing them with the next generation. Give us a call or stop in for a quote. Let us help you achieve your goals, and protect the things that matter most.

I am licensed to help customers in all product lines, including: Life, Auto, Homeowners, and Health Insurance. Sports, wellness and music have always been passions of mine.

In high school I developed lasting skills from my participation in Football, Wrestling, Swimming and Track. After graduating from Willoughby South high school, I attended the University of Hartford – Hartt School of Music and remained in Connecticut until 2012. Upon returning home to Ohio, I attended Lakeland Community College receiving an associate’s degree in Human Services. My desire to help others has grown through my professional development and I am grateful to be part of an agency that puts customer advocacy as a top priority.
