Hi! I have been a team member at the Larissa Buerano Agency since June 2009. My aim is to provide superior customer service and make the process of insurance as smooth as possible. When meeting with customers, I try to make sure I have a full understanding of their needs and then explain the options that State Farm offers. I especially love helping people understand the importance of having proper life insurance. I am the proud owner of a Doberman Labrador mix rescue named Rocco.
