Kevin started his insurance career in 1990 as a customer service representative working for his stepfather at Palm Desert Insurance. After nearly a year, he decided that insurance was his calling and obtained his Property and Casualty license. In 1997, he and his wife Christy purchased Palm Desert Insurance and have continued to grow their business by establishing long lasting personal and business relationships throughout the Coachella Valley.
Christy and Kevin have raised two wonderful and amazing sons. Their oldest son Bradley graduated high school in 2015 and is currently attending college in Riverside and is studying to be in the medical field. Their youngest Brian is still attending high school and is very involved in sports, playing water polo and baseball.
Kevin and his family are very active and love going on hikes on all the local trails in the valley. They also enjoy taking bike rides on their beach cruisers here in the Valley, as well as at the beach. One of their favorite getaways is going to the river in Parker, Arizona where they have been going since the mid 1990’s. Other favorite pastimes include skiing, snowboarding and spending time in the local mountains during the winter season.
Christy started her insurance career with Palm Desert Insurance Agency in 1997, after working as an account manager for a marketing firm for 4 years. She has been in the customer service industry for over 20 years and truly enjoys taking excellent care of her clients. Christy and her husband purchased Palm Desert Insurance Agency in 1997 from her father-in-law, Del Weist. It was there that she learned and found her passion for the personal/commercial side of insurance. She is extremely dedicated to doing a great job and prides herself on providing superior customer service.
Christy is currently a member of Desert Professionals BNI group, which is an organization of local business owners that meet weekly to help its members increase their business through a structured, positive, and professional program. She has served on the board for as Secretary for 2 years and Vice President for one year. Christy enjoys networking in the Coachella Valley and it enables her to develop long-term, meaningful relationships with quality business professionals.
Outside of work, Christy enjoys spending time with her family, traveling to and from her kids’ baseball games during most weekends. When her children are not playing ball, she enjoys spending time at the river in Parker, Arizona, hiking the trails in the Coachella Valley, biking and snow skiing with her family.
