Jennifer is one of the unique ones. She actually wanted to go into the insurance business instead of falling into it accidently. Jennifer started her insurance career while still in high school as a file clerk. While attending college, she continued working summers and moved up into policy issuance. After graduating from Bemidji State University with a Business Administration degree and St. Cloud State University with an Insurance degree, she went to work full time as an underwriting assistant. Since then, Jennifer has worked her way through claims, audits, P&C underwriting, automation and transportation underwriting. In 2013 she became President and co-owner of Erickson-Larsen, Inc.

Jennifer is active in continuing to expand her knowledge of the insurance industry by attending numerous educational classes. In 2000, she obtained her CIC designation and in 2012 earned her CIW (Certified Insurance Wholesaler) designation.  In addition, Jennifer is a member of the USA Alliance.
