Brad Buck: Colfax
Brad was born and raised on a farm in the Onecho, WA area and is currently farming with help from his retired father - the 3rd & 4th generation there to do so. An insurance agent for 20 years, Brad has earned the reputation for being likeable and for providing solid customer service that results in long term relationships with his clients . He understands agriculture and the risks associated with it – always keeping the client’s interest at the forefront. Brad attended Seattle Pacific University in Seattle and Westmont College in Santa Barbara, CA but he always knew he wanted to return to the farm...it's the people that he enjoys.
Tiffany Startin: Colfax
Also a Whitman County native, Tiffany was raised on a farm near Endicott, WA. She knows hard work and is not afraid of it -- proven repeatedly as she helped her dad with his cement business and wheat farm as a child and currently supports her husband's farming hobby. Tiffany has a background in finance (Farm Credit), USDA programs (Whitman Co. FSA), and breezed through agent licensing -- which shouldn't be surprising since she received an award for being extra smart... She has a heart-of-gold, she's a quick study and self-starter, very personable, trusted and respected by colleagues and clients alike. Tiffany holds a degree from Washington State University in Business Administration with an emphasis on Management & Operations -- yes, she is definitely a smartie...

Ken Kelso: LaCrosse
Firmly rooted in Whitman County agriculture, Ken has a strong sense of the risks that growers face on the farm and with their crops. His education (Pullman High School, WSU B.A. Criminal Justice) and his 35 years of experience focusing on farm and crop insurance means you can count on him to look at all the options that will make sense for every aspect of your farming operation. Thirty-five years of experience probably means he’s got quite a few stories of what NOT to do as well…
