As an Allstate agent in Arnold, I’ve gotten to know many local families. I am born and raised in the St. Louis area.  My family had a farm in the Ballwin area for many generations and spoke about taking goods down to the St Louis riverfront via horse and trailer. I grew up working in a small family business in the Ballwin/Ellisville area. I am a lucky mom/step mom of four wonderful boys and a wife to an amazing husband.  We have two dogs Bruiser and Dale (Both Boxer Mix).

I enjoy being a part of the community, and building local relationships is one of the best parts of my job. I know what life is like here in Arnold and the Jefferson County area – that you choose your car and your home to fit your lifestyle and your budget. I also know how important it is to do the same when it comes to insurance.

Owning my own business has been a lifelong dream.  I have been working, raising kids and saving for the past decade. I cashed in everything I have saved and moved to a tiny home to be able to live my dream of owning my own agency.   I’m personally committed to helping our Arnold and Jefferson County residents assess their immediate and long-term needs and choose options that will help them achieve their goals.

I really enjoy my work, my family and friends. Living life to the fullest is something I live by and preach, you will be hard pressed to ever see me without a smile and a positive attitude. When you want to explore options for protecting your home, personal property, small business or financial future, I’m available to answer your questions. I look forward to getting to know you and helping you to find the solutions that meet your needs.

If you’re already a customer, I’m ready to review your coverage so that you can make any necessary adjustments to fit your changing lifestyle. Call me today.

I love a good challenge and I’m always up for an adventure! I enjoy helping the people of the Arnold community since this has always been home to me, and working at The Walke Agency gives me the opportunity to give back to my community. Helping people and being there for them during difficult times makes my job worth it.

I had the privilege of growing up within two communities; Arnold and Perryville. I achieved an A.A.S in Business Administration from Jefferson College in Hillsboro in 2017. A fun fact about myself is I can’t help it but I’m a huge video game nerd! If I have spare time, I’m probably gaming it up. I am also big into Olympic sports and if I had to a pick a favorite it would be Women’s Artistic Gymnastics. GO USA!

I am a homebody so if I’m not at work, I am probably at home with my family, they are the most important thing to me. Getting involved in the community is something really important to me, I would love to donate my time where possible. There are a few organizations that I support such as, the NRA and PETA.

Working at The Walke Agency gives me the opportunity of helping people by providing them with peace of mind and be able to make an impact in the community!

I grew up in the St. Louis area. I graduated from the local high school, Seckman High School and am currently attending St. Louis Community College.

Some of the things I enjoy include preparing for the future. I am currently in the process of starting my life by purchasing my first home and am very excited, I can’t stop talking about it! On my free time, I enjoy gaming with my friends, painting and hanging out with my family. If I am not at work, I am playing with my dog and spending time with my loved ones.

I love supporting the community and have donated blood to the American Red Cross for a cure and baked goods for Alzheimer’s patients.
