About Us

Amy Bailey
Hello I'm Amy, I have been with Starr Insurance since 1996.  I have licenses in both Property/Casualty and Life/Health.  I also serve as District 7 director for the Independent Insurance Agents of South Dakota.  I thoroughly enjoy the daily challenges that insurance can throw at you. Our office prides itself on great customer service and going the extra mile for you, our clients.
To tell you a little about myself I am married with 3 children.  My oldest is a police officer for the City of Brookings, my daughter is in nursing school at SDSU and my youngest is a freshman in high school.  As well as being busy at the office, I am also busy at home.  I enjoy reading, traveling, and enjoying our beautiful Black Hills.  I grew up on a farm in eastern South Dakota and still find myself getting used to how dark it gets over here.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you protect all you've worked for.  Peace of mind is a wonderful thing.
Karen Nielsen
Hello I'm Karen and I've been an insurance agent for 14 wonderful years.  I enjoy all aspects of Property and Casualty Insurance.  I love interacting with different people everyday but above all I like to help people protect their hard earned assets.  
Residing in the southern Black Hills, me and my family love to run/hike, collect rocks, kayak and garden.  When winter comes we stay busy with house DIY, improvement projects and cooking as a family.  Our young kids keep us very busy with sporting activities and school projects.  Originally from Scotland, traveling is a big part of our life as well.  I come from a beautiful place and live in a beautiful place.
I look forward to meeting and getting to know you. -BTW I love my chicks-
Tammy Wicks
Hello I'm Tammy, I was born and raised right here in the Black Hills and I am proud to say that this is the place I call home.  My husband and I both graduated from Custer High School.  We have been married 29 years and have four beautiful girls.  We also now have a  granddaughter.  My husband and I keep very busy following after all of them.  
I graduated from South Dakota State University with a Bachelor of Science degree.  I have been working with Starr Insurance for 5 years and have learned a great deal, but I find myself learning new things each and every day.  The insurance world is complex and I am grateful to learn and grow under the direction and care of Amy and Karen.  I have much respect for their vast knowledge of insurance business.  I am now licensed in Life and Health and working on my Property and Casualty license currently.  I enjoy working with all my coworkers.  I also enjoy chatting and interacting with our clients that come to see us each day.
Micki Reindl
Hello I'm Micki, I'm new to the insurance industry and am confident I will enjoy learning something new, especially from the group of gals here at Starr Insurance.  
My Husband and I were both raised here in Custer.  We live on a little ranchette outside of town with our 3 children, cows and chickens.  My husband, Craig, has sold real estate in the area for 15+ years and has recently purchased the company he has worked for, Western Skies Real Estate.  Our oldest son just turned 15 and keeps us busy with football and wrestling.  Our next boy is 13 and he also keeps us busy with football, wrestling and track.  Our daughter is 5 and she is just starting in gymnastics.  When we can find time away from home we all really enjoy hunting, camping, fishing and traveling.
I really look forward to learning more about the insurance world and getting to know you.
