Mark is counting down to October 2019, when he will be marrying his High School Sweetheart, Bianca. Mark earned his Certified Insurance Counselor designation which is one of the toughest and most prestigious designations in the insurance industry. When he is not in the office, you can catch Mark playing recreational indoor soccer and passionately keeping up with all things having to do with the Fighting Irish, as he is seriously Notre Dame’s biggest fan.
Jonathan is the funniest guy in our agency, although 90% of the time we can't tell if he is joking or not. He is happily married to Emily and they are currently raising Scout together. Scout is a 2-year-old Golden Lab, who is better behaved than most children. Jonathan is an excellent example of a licensed insurance advisor who does everything with the heart of a teacher. He is an avid bird hunter and the kind of guy who brings a whole new definition to “roughing it” when it comes to the outdoors.
Gina is our Air Force Veteran Linguist, who can comprehend 3 different languages, while the rest of us are still working on mastering our first language.

He is also happily married to Kayla, and on Tuesday nights you can find at the softball fields playing short-stop and batting clean-up.
If there is one person that holds our team together, that would be Amanda. To be honest, she wears more hats around our office than we can keep track of. Since Amanda joined ICA in 2016, she has been our first-in-line licensed insurance advisor to service our ICA Members. Amanda is extremely quick-witted, which will catch you off guard as you are getting to know her. She has a huge heart and is always eager to serve. Whether that means helping our Members or her fellow teammates, Amanda can always be counted on.
In the nicest way possible, Marla is just a hoot. Anyone who knows Marla is nodding in agreement right now. Marla is also the definition of a Go-Getter; Once she gets her sights set on something, it’s as good as done. In 2008, she earned a BBA from Letourneau University. Her tenacity to find answers, make things happen and get things done has served her well in life, but is also a huge reason for the success she is having and has had over her many years in the Insurance Industry. Marla is happily married to Mike Cherry, has 3 kiddos, 1 grandbaby and another grandbaby arriving in July 2019!
