Crystal, a graduate of the Black Rock School District, worked for a Pocahontas bank in the deposit operations support division. She found her career calling in the insurance field, first with State Farm Insurance (2003) and now with Coker Insurance (2006).
Crystal is dedicated to matching your needs with the best products. She realizes while each of us needs insurance protection, our needs are unique. The best way to help is to understand those needs. As an Independent Insurance Agent, we have the opportunity to study different carriers in an effort to best match price and coverage for your needs. That’s why it is important to have choices unlike a captive agent who only represents one company.
Crystal and her husband Jonathon have one child, Tyson. She enjoys watching her son play baseball, soccer & basketball. She is active in her community and church, holding food drives for the local food bank & contributing her time for many other fund raising events throughout the year.
