I began my insurance career 9/1/1969 as a life insurance agent for Prudential Insurance Co. and soon came to realize financial planning included casualty and property risk as well. In 1971 my interest in being a risk manager led me to join a property and casualty agency. Became a partner in a Property and casualty agency owner in 1981 . In 2010 bought all the interest in the agency from my business partner . Owning and operating a business helped me to understand what it takes to be successful. In order to perpetuate my career found a fantastic agency, Garett Insurance , that will allow me to do that. Giving back to community, church , friends , and customers has always been important to me. We were able to do this serving in various capacities as coaching little league football, Kiwanis Club, Crime stoppers Board, Chamber of Commerce , Embassy Club, Band Boosters Club. Golden Girls Booster Club, Montgomery County IIA, Football Boosters Club, Founding member of Conroe Community Church, and Conroe Country Club Board .
