We are Independent
The folks you see on TV work for one company and can offer you one option. We work for you, our loyal customers, and have a variety of companies to choose from.
We are Teachers.
We know that insurance can be complicated, confusing, and frustrating…but it doesn’t have to be that way. We’ll become one of your closest trusted advisers. We’re on your team, and mutual respect is what makes it work.
We are Rescuers.
Insurance can be the bright, shining light at the end of the tunnel. When the worst happens to you, your business, your family – we are at our best. We bring the sunshine after the storm. When you partner with Shine, we’ve got your back.
We are Community.
In addition to our time, we give a percentage of our profit to local organizations, and our clients get to choose where we donate. Supporting people who support each other is at the heart of who we are.
McKenzie is a super compassionate risk manager from way back. She’s been watching for hazards since she can remember, pointing out ways to be safe just comes naturally to her. McKenzie is a local business owner too, she loves to talk strategy and help her clients shine.
It helps that her grandpa started The May Agency in 1949, and she grew up with her dad running the business while she played office in the attic. She eventually joined the family ranks after she graduated from Indiana University and finished a term of service in the Montana Conservation Corps, a division of AmeriCorps. McKenzie has a dozen years of insurance work under her belt and she’s geared up for many more.
McKenzie’s warmth and genuine enthusiasm shine through, and people can just feel the love and care when they work with her. You can count on McKenzie to have your back as you start your business, grow your business, or plan for the perpetuation of your business as you pursue your other passions.

Jeremy Goodrich. His name is synonymous with trust, integrity, loyalty. When folks say his name, they think of kindness and compassion. He is a true problem solver.
Jeremy earned his Art Education degree from Indiana University and completed a term of service for AmeriCorps in Vermont. Jeremy taught elementary school for 13 years and has loved fostering creativity and collaboration in his classroom.
After years of participating on the sidelines of the independent insurance world , Jeremy jumped in feet first and started changing the way people think about insurance.
Need an insurance teacher? Jeremy is here to help you understand what you are buying, and he will work with the insurance companies to make sure you are getting the best value. When the companies change the way they think about you – that’s okay – Jeremy is proactive and gives you other options before you even have to ask. Does your agent do that?
