Kathy Jo Wenzel
I have lived in the Amherst area for most of my life and love the small town concept. I’ve been in the insurance business since 1998. I was supposed to start off part-time so I could spend more time at home with my kids, needless to say I have been full time since I started. Before that I worked in the banking industry for 6 yrs, just a block down from our office.
