The agency specializes in consulting in retirement and estate planning, annuities, life insurance, Medicare supplements, ancillary insurance and health insurance, both group and individual.

Since the passing of original partner, Ron Spotts, in October of 2015, his partner and wife, Kathy (Spotts) Humiston has managed the business and has continued to counsel and service clients’ needs in the greater Central Pennsylvania area.

Recently the office added Kevin Humiston as a partner in the business. Mr. Humiston has been working as an insurance agent, helping people in the Pittsburgh area, and moved to Beech Creek in June.

Originally from Clearfield, Mr. Humiston attended Penn State University, majoring in Psychology and Business Administration. He has years of management experience during the 20 years he lived in the Los Angeles, California region and both insurance and real estate experience since relocating to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 2009. Mr. Humiston holds both PA State Insurance licenses and a PA State Real Estate license. His area of expertise rests primarily in health and supplemental insurance and is also knowledgeable in life insurance and annuity products.
