Jen Ferris feels being an insurance broker is so much more than just “writing” a policy for a client. She embraces the daily opportunity — and responsibility — to learn about her clients: their success, challenges and growth areas and thrives on collaborating with businesses to help solve their problems.

She has spent the past four years working as an insurance broker and previously practiced insurance defense litigation. This background has equipped Jen to limit risk for businesses across many industries.

Jen specializes in working with protein producers, particularly hogs and cattle. The interest stems from her childhood in rural Iowa, where her involvement with 4-H and FFA catered to a love of animals. Many protein producers have transitioned from being small mom-and-pop operations to large-scale businesses employing dozens of people. Like any other industry, protein producers and farmers need an advocate who understands and specializes in knowing the risks involved in their business. Seeing that these businesses were lacking a consultant to help them navigate the risks of growth inspired Jen to focus in this space.
