The dedicated staff at Dross Countryside Insurance work hard to make sure your insurance needs are taken care of quickly.
After 20 years in an accounting/finance career, my life got turned upside down when my fiancé, Paul Dross, owner of Dross Countryside and father of my 2 girls unexpectedly passed away. I had to make some very challenging decisions and one of those was to take over the agency. Paul and his mom built Dross Countryside into an agency with strong core values based on putting our clients first. It only felt right, in my heart, to carry on the legacy of Paul and his mom as well as continue to take care of so many valued clients and incredible staff! I am excited to continue to grow in the insurance world and get to know all the DCI clients. Outside of the agency, I play full-time taxi driver for my 2 girls that are involved in cheer, theater and the Badgerland Water Ski Show team.
After graduating from the University of Kentucky with a degree in Psychology I decided to make a career change into insurance in 1994. I began my insurance career in equine insurance as an independent claims adjuster in the heart of horse country, Lexington, Kentucky. I moved to Wisconsin in 2000 and became a licensed agent and Certified Insurance Service Representative. I earned the designation of Certified Insurance Counselor in 2018. I have worked in both personal lines and commercial lines. My focus here at Dross Countryside is commercial insurance. I enjoy developing partnerships with business owners to determine the best coverage for their needs and help them navigate the often murky waters of insurance.
When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family, hiking with my German Shorthair Pointer Milo, home gardening projects and getting together with friends.
I have been working in the insurance industry for 27 years. Working in an agency where we are able to offer several different companies to meet the needs of each person and/or family has been my greatest experience. I enjoy working with folks educating them on insurance and the protection it provides them whether it is for their vehicles, home, boats and other toys as well as life insurance.
With a background in customer service I strive to provide the best possible experience with every person I speak to. I absolutely love the day to day participation with each client and helping them find the most comprehensive coverage that meets their needs. Being able to learn something new every day is also my motto. The best thing in my life is my family. In my spare time, I like to get outdoors and spend time on the water or nature trail!
I started in the Insurance industry in 1994, becoming fully licensed in 1998. At work, I take pride in getting to know our clients – this is my favorite part of the job! This not only helps me to better understand their individual needs, but also build stronger relationships. When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with family and friends as well as doing community service with our church.
After graduating from University of Wisconsin Platteville with a degree in Business Administration, I took an opportunity to join Dross Countryside Insurance and their excellent team of insurance advisors. I enjoy getting to know our clients to best meet their insurance needs and build lasting relationships with our agency. My time away from work is spent with friends and family and traveling to new places.
Hello, my name is Jeff Lorenz. After 15+ years as engineer/supervisor in the manufacturing sector, I transition to the insurance industry and became licensed in 2001. I am a property and casualty insurance specialist who can provide a variety of products and services that can help protect your auto, home, and business. Some of the areas that I can assist in include property coverages, liability coverage and contract bonds. It is my goal to work closely with my clients and really get to know each unique business that I work with so that I can provide the best insurance solution.
When I am not working, I enjoy playing golf, spending time with my family at our lake home in northern Wisconsin where we ATV, boat and hike. I reside in Mukwonago since 1995 with my wife, Teri, and we have a grown daughter.
I jumped into the insurance world back in 2003 at a captive agency and made the move to Dross Countryside Insurance in 2008. In 2016 I made the incredibly hard decision to leave the company to raise our growing family of 3 daughters. With school now full days for all 3, I came back to work at DCI. I love engaging in conversations with everyone and helping when the opportunity presents itself.
My off time consists of juggling 3 little social calendars, fishing, hunting, and traveling with my family.
