July means family reunions, BBQs and vacations. Good food and time spent with family makes life so much better! Whether you are spending time at the cabin or hanging out at home, we want to make sure all of your insurance needs are met. Before your boat hits the water or motorcycle cruises down the open road, call, text or stop by to create a Personal Price Plan to confirm you are properly covered.

We are proud to be recognized by the Brainerd Lakes 2023 - Top Insurance Agency/Agent for 2023.

I have been serving the Brainerd Lakes area as your local State Farm agent since 2011. I'm passionate about what we do here. My dedication to protecting my neighbors and my community is why I got into this business and I bring that excitement and energy every day to the office.

I'm a University of North Dakota, alumni and am a past member of the UND Hockey Team from 2001-2005. In my spare time, I also did the TV Color Commentating for all of the University of North Dakota Hockey home games in Grand Forks, North Dakota for the last 9 years before stepping down from that role after the 2023-24 season.

I also enjoy spending time on the lake doing water sports as well as fishing for walleyes. Also, you can't enjoy golfing enough with all the beautiful golfing options that we are lucky to have in the Brainerd Lakes area so I also enjoy playing golf. Our office enjoys competing in BBQ competitions around the area, and we all enjoy cooking and baking delicious goodies. Our office also handles a lot of State Transfers to the Brainerd Lakes area as well as dealing with a lot of State Farm customers who have seasonal places in this beautiful area.

My team of Travis, Andrea, Terah, Kenzie and Hannah, would love the opportunity to help with all of your insurance needs.

Kenzie Jacobs

Office Representative

Kenzie is a Minnesota born and raised professional licensed to help with your home, auto, business, health and life insurance needs. Her growing experience in this industry has allowed her to connect with families and business owners and teach them how to protect what is most important to them. Community is at the center of everything for Kenzie. Whether she is giving back by advocating for good mental health, biking the wonderful trails in our area, or sharing her passion with this growing community, her roots are right here. Over a cup of coffee, she'll treat you like family and make sure to protect all the things you love.


Terah Glas

Office Representative

Terah was born and raised in the small town of Fosston in northern Minnesota. She went to school at the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks and then transferred to Colorado State University where she proceeded to live for 10+ years with her husband and her growing family. Eventually returning to her roots in Minnesota, they made the move to the Brainerd Lakes area in 2010 where she and her husband settled in the Pillager area. Her 3 children go to school in Pillager where Terah also coaches volleyball. When she is not at work or coaching, you will probably find her at a hockey rink, watching her 3 children play hockey for Brainerd.

Growing up on a farm, she is experienced with hard work and dedication. She is new to the insurance world, but that gives her more motivation to learn and grow with you as members of this amazing community we are a part of.
