Marty along with his wife, Jolene, are the founders and owners of Aspire Insurance Agency. They saw the frustration of clients at the lack of options when they only represented one insurance company. As a result, they started Aspire Insurance. Here the needs of the clients transcend the characteristics of any one insurance company. Auto, Home, Business, and Life insurance solutions could truly be tailored to the individual or company purchasing the policy.
Marty and Jolene have worked as a team to serve the insurance needs of their clients for over 30 years. They have two children, Spencer and Grant, both of whom work in the agency. Marty has a BS/BA degree in finance and economics from Rockhurst University in Kansas City, MO, an MBA from UMKC-University of Missouri Kansas City, and has earned the coveted CPCU insurance designation.
In his spare time, Marty loves spending time with his family and his dog, Mac. He enjoys getting together with friends, playing cards, traveling, fishing, and working on home projects. Contact him TODAY!
