Welcome to my website! I would like to first thank you for taking the opportunity to consider me for any and all of your insurance needs. I understand it is a very important decision and before you make it, I am sure you would like to know a few things about me.

Hi, I’m Paulina! I’m a wife, mother, grandmother, business owner, and I love dogs! At a very young age, I moved to California with my family, and spent the vast majority of my childhood living in a few different cities on the Peninsula. After completing my education, I moved to the South Bay and worked in the financial industry for close to a decade.

In 1990, I wanted something new, different, and challenging to further expand my career. It was then that I made the decision to venture into the exciting industry of insurance! After choosing State Farm as the company where I would build my agency, I finished my training, and officially opened for business in March of 1991.

Over the past 30 plus years, I have had the privilege of working with thousands of people to make sure they are protected and safe during life’s greatest moments, challenging times, and everything in between. I pride myself on hard-work, excellent service, being a valuable resource in the complex insurance world, and most importantly having a "do whatever it takes" attitude.

My agency serves residents of the Bay Area and surrounding cities and counties. However, I am licensed in California, so wherever you live in this great state, I can be your insurance provider! My ultimate goal is to make sure you have the exact coverage you need so you can enjoy life without worry.

Within State Farm, I have won the Legion of Honor Award, the Silver Scroll Award, and the Golden Triangle Award. In addition, I am a member of the Sunnyvale Chamber of Commerce, the Downtown Sunnyvale Association, and the Silicon Valley Association of Realtors.

Thank you again for visiting my website! I hope to be able to connect with you regarding your insurance needs. If you have any questions or need more information, please call the number at the top of the page, send me an email, text me, or take a look at my social media.
