I have been an agent since October 1999 and I have lived in WA since the age of 2 with a couple of years in Australia and Colorado when my parents moved with their jobs. I have lived in Washington with my wife and kids since 1988. The thing I like most about my town is the diversity of people and recreation.
You can’t live in Washington without being a Seahawks fan. In fact, I can’t figure out how anyone in this country isn’t a Seahawks fan. I enjoy hiking and fishing especially on the eastside of the mountains. I enjoy taking visitors to Pike Place Market and watching them throw salmon across the room. There are so many parks to take your kids to that I have no favorites but many of them have evening concerts in the summer time. The Sound is a great place to boat and if you don’t have one there are so many options with the multiple vendors available; even taking a local ferry can be an experience. The mountains here make great getaways with hiking or snow related fun.
I am married to my wife, Nadine, for 35 years. We have 3 kids who now have given us 7 grandchildren. I am a Rotarian and have been for the past 10 years. I have held most offices including Past President. Rotary is very involved in helping the local and international community. We have done so many projects that there are too many to list. We have provided wheelchairs to the needy, built baseball fields for kids, set up local food banks, provided backpacks, sponsored sporting event, shopped for toys for and with underprivileged kids, provide annual college scholarships for three local high schools, and many other special projects. I am also a member of Pennies for Puppies. We raise money to support the acquisition, training, and tools needed by the Snohomish County Sheriff K-P program. My hobbies and personal interests are camping, hiking, quading, snowmobiling and taking my grandkids to the park.
Being an insurance agent gives me the ability to assist many families as they weigh and minimize risk through annual insurance portfolio reviews. I can also help you find the right financial solutions to reach your financial goals. My Kirkland office is in Totem Lake just across the street from Kirkland Ford dealership.

I’ve been with Allstate for over 37 years and have worn many hats in the company. My tenure and experience has allowed me to not only understand the ins-and-outs of insurance, but also to service hundreds of families regarding their protection needs. I can help you protect the things that are important – your family, home, car, boat and more. One of the things I like best about working with Allstate is the variety of products and services I can offer clients. More than insurance, I can offer a variety of solutions to address their financial needs – such as saving for a child’s education or retirement.
In my spare time I enjoy golfing at Inglewood Golf Club, cooking (and eating) and travel. But most of all I love to spend time with our four grandchildren and our three children especially in Disneyland, I have volunteered with the YMCA and the Woodinville Rotary. I enjoy raising money for different causes.
I was born and raised in Washington and went to Juanita High School right down the street from our agency. I truly enjoy being able to help people. Knowing that our customers and their families are well protected and are able to call us anytime if they need help or understanding is incredibly satisfying, and exactly why I love my job.
I couldn’t live my life without volleyball! Not only did I play throughout my youth, and still currently partake in every coed league I have time for, I coach two volleyball teams. I coach Varsity Volleyball at my former High school and a National Club Volleyball team based out of the Sammamish area. When I’m not at work, you can find me on the volleyball court or taking my dog Saint for a walk or a park visit.
I was born and raised in Snohomish County. I went to a very small local private school my whole life and then Edmonds Community for a little more than a year. I never really knew much about insurance until I became an agent and now see the value of insurance. I love to share my knowledge with our customers and my passion for protecting what’s important to them.
I have passion for people and love talking with customers and helping them feel secure about their insurance. My guilty pleasure is sports! I am a Seahawks and Sounders fan! Golf is also a big passion of mine, when the weather allows. When I am not at work, I am with my wife and newborn son, doing home improvements, spending time with friends, or playing sports.
I have been around the insurance industry my whole life as my father has been with the agency since 1999. I followed in his footstep after being honorably discharged from the United States Marine Corps in February 2013. I love helping people in general. Insurance can be confusing and most of the time people want the cheapest price not knowing what insurance can actually do for them. No one wants the cheapest insurance when they have an accident, so I enjoy educating customers about insurance.
I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, whether its being outdoors camping, fishing or hiking to playing board games on a rainy day. When I am not working, you can find me camping or playing in the backyard with the kids! I love to take my small fishing boat out and go crabbing and fishing or taking the motorcycle out for a ride on a sunny day. Currently, I am working with Junior Achievement.
I have worked in the agency since I was a teenager. After graduating from George Fox University, I started a career in the claims department. I now work from my home and am busy with four beautiful children. My husband and I have a very busy life enjoying camping, hiking and riding motorcycles.
Licensed Sales Producer
I became licensed and joined the agency in April 2016 and have been writing property & casualty policies ever since. I have recently gained the ability to write life insurance and look forward to that challenge! I’ve spent my entire life in the Seattle area and graduated from WSU in 2015 (Go Cougs!). I love the outdoors and food that the Northwest offers! I love meeting new people and having in-depth conversations about their lives; folks have so many cool hobbies and stories and it’s awesome that they trust us to protect them!
I’m crazy about Star Wars and Mariners Baseball! If I’m not trying something new to eat (either at a restaurant or my own kitchen), you can find me exploring the outdoors or planning my next trip to somewhere neat. I take advantage of every chance I get to SCUBA dive and snowboard; I’d call them guilty pleasures since I rarely get the opportunity to indulge in either! As a Type 1 diabetic, I’m very passionate and proud of my work with Seattle Children’s Hospital and the JDRF.
Customer Experience Specialist
I have been a licensed agent, and working as a customer experience specialist for Bill Gowin and Mike McGinness since May 2015. I am a born-and-raised Washingtonian! I graduated college in 2010 with a degree in photography and before insurance; I worked as a barista in independent coffee shops. I love being able to serve people on a daily basis, whether it’s emailing them an insurance I.D. card, or walking them though a claim.
I would say photography is my guilty pleasure, but I think everyone in the office would agree that’s it’s actually my cat…When I am not working, I am running my wedding photography business! I have recently started learning how to refinish furniture. I am also a big wine fan! I teach 5th grade Sunday school every week, and will most likely move up to 6th grade with them next year!
Personal Financial Representative
I enjoy helping families, individuals, and businesses reach their financial goals and dreams. My goal is to assist people in creating financial balance, protecting and securing their future, creating tax strategies in retirement and estate planning. I enjoy educating and implementing financial strategies to help my customers get on the right track. I have been in the industry for 14 years. I can’t think of a better place to help serve my customers. I was born and raised in Washington, I’ve also lived in Hawaii, and Southern California. The beauty of the outdoors and all the things that the Great Northwest has to offer brought me back here. When I’m not at work I enjoy playing music, hiking, fishing, snow skiing, & coaching water polo
Personal Financial Representative
I have been in the financial industry for over 13 years. I grew up in Eastern Washington and enjoy rooting for the Seahawks and Gonzaga. I enjoy meeting new people everyday and helping them build a financial plan to reach their goals and financial freedom. When I am not at work, I am spending time with my two beautiful daughters exploring local activities.
I have been working in the insurance industry for 10+ years! I grew up in Redmond, Washington and attended the University of Washington.
The most rewarding part of my job is helping the customer understand their coverage and have peace of mind in case of a claim.
I enjoy Husky and Seahawk Football. On the weekends, I spend time with my husband and son. On Friday nights, you will find me playing co-ed soccer.
I grew up in Bellevue and graduated from Biola University in southern California. I returned to the Northwest in 1979 and started in the insurance business. I have worked with Bill for about 19 years. I enjoy talking with clients and getting to know them. When it’s sunny, I like to golf, and go on walks with my family. I have 3 children and 4 grandchildren. I also enjoy reading and listening to music.
Client Retention Specialist
I grew up in Snohomish, then graduated from a small Christian University in Southern California. I am relatively new to the insurance industry but growing up with my dad being an agent, I heard many stories of how his work with clients helped their families when they had a claim. It brings me joy to be on this team with my dad and brother, helping people feel secure in the things they enjoy everyday. I enjoy good books, outdoor adventures and of course spending time with family and friends, preferably with coffee. My husband and I have two little girls, one of whom we are in the process of adopting, and I couldn’t imagine our little family without her.
My Dad was an agent for almost 40 years, I grew up striving to hopefully be as good of a person
and an agent as my dad was. I saw the good he did and the lives he touched through his work.
When I was in kindergarten and the teacher asked us to draw a picture of what we wanted to be when
we grew up I drew a picture of me in a blue Agency shirt with my father that said “When I grow up I
want to be an insurance agent like my dad”. When I was in junior high he let me work with him filing,
helping customers, answering phones, and sending out letters- this was the start of my career as an
insurance agent. When he retired I kept on going and now have been with the Agency for almost
4 years, but I keep on coming back! Insurance is in my blood, and being able to work alongside
both Mike and Bill who have their kid(s) working for them just like my father and I is really an awesome
environment to be in.
I absolutely love people, and I love helping others and making new relationships. My life revolves around
my family, my dogs, and the beautiful northwest (and food of course). Almost always you can find me
somewhere walking, swimming, or hiking with my pup Amiya. I enjoy reading a good book outside
curled up under a tree, or taking a good nap!
