Kristie McGee

Kristie brought 20+ years of experience in customer service to the Kiesewetter Agency when she joined us in 2011 as our Personal Lines Customer Service Representative. She uses the knowledge and insight gained along the way to help our clients to find the perfect coverage for their homes, autos, and recreational vehicles (including boats, motorcycles and ATVs). Although her work at the agency keeps her busy, she still finds time to be a full-fledged soccer mom away from the office. In addition to the non-stop daily activities that keep her three kids in motion, Kristie and her family enjoy camping, boating, and four-wheeling throughout the summer.
