Marissa VanGennip-Dirnberger

Owner, VanGennip Insurance & Financial Services


When I was given the opportunity to purchase this Agency, I imagined an agency where the client would come first. I wanted to help clients prepare for the unexpected, to be able to help them lessen the traumatic effects of inevitable disasters and uncontrollable events that often happen in life. I wanted an agency where anyone – no matter their station in life – could walk in or call, talk to a knowledgeable agent, and get the answers to any and all questions.


I wanted an agency with friendly and helpful service that will keep up with our clients and monitor when their policies change and why. Anytime a client would like for me to review their insurance to see if there are changes we need or want to make, I am willing to do it – all it takes is a phone call to schedule it!


Our business is based on honesty and integrity and we value our relationship with our clients. We are well-staffed and willing to go above and beyond for our clients. We want to develop a long-term, long-lasting relationship with our clients and give them the best service possible. In addition, I want to give my clients a place where they could get everything taken care of in one place. To that end, we can offer almost any type of insurance you may need. We have many options:


  • Auto, motorcycle, boat insurance, ATV, motor homes
  • Residential homes, businesses, vacation homes
  • Health, Medicare Supplements, and Prescription Drug Plans
  • Life for any or all members of your family
  • Pet, Agriculture, and Umbrella Insurance
  • Financial and Retirement Management


No matter what you may need, we can do it all! Just give us a call or stop by!
