Over thirty years of experience have made Mike an expert in the insurance industry. Mike began as an insurance agent in 1985 and decided to open his own agency, The Southcott Agency Inc. in 1995 that would specialize in agricultural insurance.
After receiving a B.S. in Agricultural Economic from Cornell University in 1981, Mike has been a dedicated student of the insurance business. Mike earned his Chartered Life Underwriter and Chartered Financial consultant degrees from the American College and his Agri-business and Farm Insurance Specialist degree from the Insurance Skills Center of California.
