I have been an insurance agent for twenty-seven years serving in the East Valley of Arizona. As a second generation agency, I love the ability to help my clientele navigate through the sometimes confusing world of insurance and make sure that their most valuable assets are protected.

I was born and raised in Gilbert, Arizona and have a Bachelor of Science in Business Management from Arizona State University. I thoroughly enjoy spending time with my family, which is why you can find us outside mountain biking, hiking and fishing whenever I’m not in the office. I also really enjoy the White Moutains with the cooler weather and wildlife. A fun fact about me is that I am an Ironman Triathelete (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride and 26.2 mile swim back).

I’ve helped out with my son’s cub scouts troop but am really excited to see what we’ll be able to do to make a difference for our community.

 

Honors and Awards:

  • – Recognized for work with Homeless Youth
  • – Agency Growth Champion
  • – Premier Agency

I’ve been working in the insurance industry for almost six years, but made my way over to The Thorpe Agency family in 2012. I love building the relationship of trust with our customers and getting to know them, helping them with their insurance needs and protecting themselves and their families. I also really love being a part of such an excellent team!

I was born and raised in Mexico,  I finished college and moved to Arizona in 2003. I love being active, after a long day of work, I enjoy going for a run or doing a yoga session to relax. My favorite way to spend my weekend is doing things with my son, watching a movie, spending time with family, and when the weather is nice, we like to go hiking and enjoy being outdoors. My guilty pleasure is food and I love to eat!

I’m looking forward to seeing what we can do for the community and make a difference in the lives of our community!

I started working with Jason’s father twenty-two years ago in the insurance industry. It excites me to work with the same clients for such a long period and figuring out new ways to help them.

I grew up in Boardman, Ohio and spent twenty-three years as a military wife. I find it hard to stop talking about my son who is currently getting ready to be deployed to the Middle East with the U.S. army. When I’m not working I’m usually trying to shop, but I limit myself to one day a weekend. A fun fact about me is that I don’t cook. We spend weekends eating out and the rest of the time my husband is on his own for meals.

My community means a lot to me and I donate money to animal and military funds whenever I can. I also have two adorable rescue dogs.

Keith Kellett
Financial Specialist

I have been in the insurance and financial services business for eighteen years. I love working with families to help them build a blueprint for achieving their financial dreams!

I grew up here in the east valley and graduated from Arizona State University, but now spending my days enjoying traveling with my wife and supporting our three children in their athletic endeavors. When I’m not working, you will usually find me on the baseball field watching my twin boys or at a dance competition supporting my daughter. I take great pride in my lawn and the time I spend working on it provides me the therapy I need to survive raising 3 teenagers.

My family regularly volunteers at Feed My Starving Children and we always come away from those opportunities counting our many blessings.

Yessenia Wences
Sales Producer

Born and raised in Los Angeles, California . I moved to Arizona on my freshman year of high school and I attended Chandler High, where I graduated in 2008. Soon after, I went to Mesa Community College.

I’ve been in the insurance industry for 7 years now. I started working for an insurance broker where I was able to get Licensed. Working in the non-standard market has made me realize the importance of having a good company on your side. Working with the preferred market allows me to give clients the best protection and I take pride in doing so. Our customers know they are in good hands.

I love this business and take pride and joy in giving clients Peace of Mind knowing that if anything were to happen, in any situation, they will be properly covered and taken care of.

I have two children, a boy and a girl. Seeing them smile and laugh is what I enjoy most about the time we are together. I try my best to dedicate my free time with them doing fun activities. We love to go hiking when it’s cool (enough) and traveling. Our favorite place is the beach so we visit California and Rocky Point often.

I have been in the insurance industry for eight years. I really enjoy educating my clients and helping families protect themselves, loved ones, and their assets. Being a trusted insurance advisor is something I take a lot of pride in. It’s a great feeling to be able to educate customers on not only what insurance is but why they need it.  Nothing is more fulfilling to know that when family, friends, and contacts, think of insurance they think of me. When you are a part of The Thorpe Agency you are apart of a family!

I grew up in Arizona most of my life but lived in California and Nevada. I am a McClintock Charger from Tempe. I am still pursing my degree while I continue my career with The Thorpe Agency. I really enjoy cooking, playing basketball and traveling. In my free time I am a family gal, I love being with my nieces and nephews.

I have been a licensed representative for over ten years, and joined The Thorpe Agency in July of 2017. I enjoy helping people protect the things they care about most, it’s important for me to protect my customer and the things that are important to them!

I was born and raised in Chandler, Arizona and went to Chandler High and Dobson High. After I graduated, I worked for the Boys and Girls Club in Chandler for a few years before making my way over to insurance. I enjoy meeting new people and relaxing nights in, but also love to spend my free time with my family. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband and three kids. On weekends, we enjoy catching movie or hanging at the park or library.

I’m looking forward to seeing how we can help the community and make a difference in the lives around us!
