I am thrilled to now own 2 Allstate agencies where my team and I can work with and serve customers.
The role of a broker is special. We get to work with our customers at some of the highest and lowest points in their lives and helping them navigate through these highs and lows is incredibly meaningful.
That’s great you may be saying, but who the heck is Christina Shaw and with that in mind, I thought I’d share some personal information about me that might help to “flesh out” who I am!
I graduated from SUNY Albany in 2002 where I majored in Communications and minored in Business. While attending school full-time, I also worked in an Allstate agency 20-30 hours per week and I know that juggling the responsibilities of school and work helped to prepare me for the intense juggling that I do now! I enjoyed school (except for computer science!), and to this day, enjoy learning very much.
Favorite Music and My Ideal Day:
Hands down, it’s the music of the 80’s. (Is there anything else?!)
On my ideal days, you can often find 80’s music playing in the background while I’m spending time with family and my partner, doing anything from drinking coffee and being lazy on my front porch or working out and then going to the beach with the 4 kids (mine and his!), or sharing a bottle of red wine and a fabulous home-cooked meal. It’s the simple stuff that makes me the happiest.
Favorite Places Where I Might Live:
There are too many to mention but right now Laguna Beach CA is at the top of my list as a place I could live. Denver is awesome, but I don’t see myself living there (hey, they don’t have an ocean), and above all, Spain has my heart. I could live there in a minute, but I know that living abroad isn’t in the cards, at least for the foreseeable future!
My two girls, ages 7 and 9, are amazing and my hopes for them are simple – I want them to find fulfillment in their work, whatever that might be, and to always be able to stand on their own two feet. I want them to be independent and strong and, of course, be loved and appreciated for who they are.
I’m easy going but I hate paying bills and am looking for that bookkeeper that can read my mind. Hah, does that even exist?
I love being an Allstate agent and being a part of the community. I want to add value and help wherever and whenever I can and if you have a question, please reach out to me and my team.
