    I am Judy and I started working for Gayle in 2010 upon moving to Chico. I am licensed in Auto and Fire. My prior insurance background was with State Farm in Sonoma County; for over 39 years I worked in Personal and Business Lines Underwriting, Claims, and Management. I fell in love with Butte County by traveling through Northern California years ago to visit all the State Farm agents. My favorite enjoyments in Chico are the Saturday Farmers Market and the beautiful tree lined streets.

    I am Sheila and I have had the pleasure of working with Gayle for seven years. In addition to being a Notary I am also licensed to sell auto, home, health, and life insurance. Upon moving to Chico from my hometown of Los Banos, CA, I immediately fell in love with the Chico community. Last year my spouse and I purchased our first home, and shortly thereafter we got two black lab puppies. Needless to say, I spend most of my free time doing house projects and playing with my dogs Kane and Kona.
