About me

Industry Business Services
Occupation Insurance Agent - Broker
Location Pine Bush, New York, United States
Introduction I grew up on a small family farm on Oregon Trail in Walker Valley, NY, not far from the family farm my father grew up on, on Jansen Road. I went through the Pine Bush Central School system, graduating from Pine Bush High School. I’m the mother of four daughters, and am now a grandmother. I still reside in Pine Bush enjoying all this area has to offer to the fullest. In 1991, I was asked by Bob Collins to join the Robert B. Collins Agency in Pine Bush to learn the insurance business. Bob sent me to classes at OCCC to become a Licensed Insurance Agent in 1993. Although Bob Collins sold the business, I remained with the agency until June 2014. On June 16, 2014 I became an Affiliated Producer for William A. Smith & Son Insurance. In the past I also owned & operated a country store, Quimby & Smith, from 2001 – 2011. During that time I became a founding member of the Pine Bush Area Chamber of Commerce, and have served as Secretary, Vice-President, and currently holding the office of Presidency. After closing my shop, I joined Wallkill East Rotary in 2011, where I served as Secretary from 2012-2013, President Elect from 2013-2014, and am currently serving as President.
Interests When I’m not working or serving the community a few of the things that I enjoy are hiking, kayaking, cycling, skiing, painting, and cooking with my girls.
