Kerry Pontarolo

Associate Insurance Advisor

Hi there, my name is Kerry! I have an active Level 1 General Insurance Licence and specialize in auto insurance. I understand the importance of protecting our local farmers, business owners, young families and new clients to find the right insurance coverage for their individual needs.

I grew up on a small farm outside of Picture Butte and in 2018 I moved back to that same farm with my husband and two teenage boys. I have a background in education and working with our community youth, which has helped me realize the need for educating and protecting those who matter most.

When I'm not at work, you can find me cheering on local sports teams, camping with family and friends and spending time outside with our many animals. I enjoy being a part of the Co-operators team and will continue to strive to build strong relationships within the community.
