Meet Our Team

David Starns
Agency Owner

Originally, I grew up in Maryland and later moved to Missouri.

When it comes to my job, what I enjoy most about being a trusted Allstate advisor is helping to protect the community. I love helping customers understand insurance and the value of insurance.

Most of my free time I devote to my kids and our family. We enjoy spending time together and visiting the Lake of the Ozarks. I also enjoy golfing, exercising, and watching our local sports teams. Go KC!

Cecily Lara
Sales Producer

Originally, I grew up in SouthEast Missouri on a Farm. I attended the University of Phoenix for 3 years and managed hotels for 9 years before deciding to transfer to the Insurance Industry.

I enjoy helping customers understand insurance coverages and helping to make sure they are adequately covered, whether it’s for their auto or their home.

I have two young children with whom I spend my spare time with, as they keep me quite busy with their sports and school functions!
When I’m not working you can find me with my family, helping with the cattle, fishing, or just at home relaxing.

Jodie Poor
LSP/Office Manager

I have 20 years of experience in the insurance industry. I am also licensed for all lines of insurance – auto, home, business, health, and life.
Originally, I grew up in Bucklin, Missouri.  I attended MACC college and was a member of the cheerleading squad.

When it comes to my job, I love being able to save our clients money and making sure they are fully protected.

When I’m not working, I love spending time with my family and our dog!!  In the summer I am normally with my family boating on the lake.  We also love to go to the movies.

In terms of personal interests, I really enjoy putting crafty items together to give away.  I also have a big weakness for chocolate (or any sweets).  And I love going to antique auctions!

I volunteer for our annual pink ribbon/cancer awareness football game at our local school.  It is very rewarding to help out this cause, since I am a survivor.
