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).
