Lauren Bianco, Office Manager

(573) 449-0841

Lauren started with Matt the day that he opened his office in 2011 and has never looked back! A native to Columbia, Lauren attended Rock Bridge High School and studied at both the University of Missouri and Columbia College. A graduate of Junior Leadership Columbia’s class of 2008, she has remained active in our community as a leader and volunteer as a coach with the Special Olympics Missouri and a tutor at Columbia Public Schools. An avid Mizzou and Cardinals fan, look for her at the next MU game! She also loves to travel, spend time with her dog, Milo, and brush up on her yoga in her free time.

Licensed to sell and equipped to handle your service needs, Lauren keeps our office running smoothly day-to-day.

Nancy Smith, Customer Operations Manager

Matt’s wife, Nancy, is our Customer Operations Manager. She is licensed in the state of Missouri, and can help answer questions about your policy or make updates for you when necessary. She takes care of the day-to-day customer service needs in our agency. Nancy has worked with us since March 2014.

Liz Sneed, Customer Sales & Service Representative

(573) 449-0841

Liz joined our office in October of 2014. The newest member of our staff, Liz just passed her Missouri Property and Casualty exam in December! We are excited to teach her everything she needs to know to make her a valuable asset to your insurance team!

Liz was born in Tucson, Arizona, but moved to Columbia with her family when she started Kindergarten. Before attending Moberly Area Community College and then the University of Missouri, Liz was a Rock Bridge Bruin. She has a passion for cooking, crafting, photography, and the Cardinals! Her dog is even named Stan after the great Cardinal’s baseball player, Stan Musial.

She is very anxious to get to know each and every one of you, so help us welcome her to the agency!
