I am a mother, wife, and local business owner. I have owned and operated my business since July of 2006. I have an Agency in Port Charlotte and one in Nokomis. Prior to becoming a business owner, I worked for State Farm Insurance Company for fifteen years. I am a graduate of the University of Florida and I enjoy reading, shopping, and traveling.
The most important organization to me is (EAE) Education and Athletic Excellence. This organization was founded by my husband, Rhondy Weston in 2011 and the focus is to provide financial assistance to underprivileged students who have a desire to attend college. Secondly, I am very passionate about making a difference in our community and being a voice for those whose voice is not being heard. I’ve been able to do this by serving on several different boards over the past sixteen years.
My goal in my personal life is to continue my relationship with Christ by putting him first in everything I do and being the best mother and wife, I can be while balancing my personal commitments and work. On a professional level, I am always striving to become the biggest and BEST insurance Agency in Southwest Florida.
My greatest strength is my leadership abilities. I have had the opportunity to work in many different leadership roles within State Farm Insurance Companies and that prepared me to lead a successful Agency.
