Long Beach, CA 90803-3904

Southern California girl, raised in Long Beach--attended Newcomb Academy, Millikan High

School, and Long Beach City College! I graduated from Whittier College and then was hired at

my first “real” job at The Ohio State University as one of the first full time female collegiate

swim coach’s in the nation. I earned the opportunity as a two-time Olympian, double

medalist –and former world record holder in swimming. I qualified for my first Games before I

started high school and my second Olympic experience after I graduated from high school—so I was right

out of college when I was hired as the Buckeye coach. After a successful 3 year coaching stint

in Ohio, I really missed my Long Beach roots and the warmer weather. I accepted a job doing

promotional work for a swim wear company with “minimal travel’---which kept me on the

road over 300 days a year. I enjoyed traveling the world for a while but eventually it took a toll

on me. A close girlfriend of mine persuaded me to interview with State Farm Insurance as her

husband was a State Farm agent. I was feeling entrepreneurial at the time, so I decided to

embark on the journey. Being a State Farm agent would allow me to put roots down once

again. Now, 30 years later, I still have my agency in Naples in Long Beach. I still find joy

meeting and talking with customers and neighbors and being a part of the community. In my free

time I enjoy walking the canals in Naples, traveling and working out. My disciplined training

from swimming continues but my exercise consists of anything but swimming. I still am

unable to sleep in from all the early morning swim practices that I was accustomed to. I take

pleasure in social events and hosting friends in my home. Alas, cooking is not one of my better

known skills --I have a beautiful new gas range which gets very little use. One of the beauties

of being in the Long Beach, Naples, Belmont Shore area are the many locally owned

restaurants that I love to take advantage of supporting when I have gatherings. As a small

business owner, I know the importance of shopping local. My team and I also support the

community by participating in in the Joy of Giving/Spark of Love toy drive. I am also a member

of the Long Beach Century Club, a non-profit dedicated to amateur athletics in the city of

Long Beach. Over the years in this industry I have learned how important it is to be someone

people can count on—to be trustworthy and dependable. My State Farm team, Recki, Michele

and Dina, two of whom are bilingual , all deeply value the relationships we have built with

customers over the decades. I know that our clientele can always rely on my experienced team

and me. If you live in Long Beach, Lakewood, Signal Hill Seal Beach or Orange County area, we
