Taylor is the mother to a preschooler, Tessa, who always keeps her on her toes. In her spare time she loves to travel, read, and go out to eat. She has lived in eight different states, has visited 35, and wants to see the rest!

Christen Cantrell

Associate Agent

Christen has been driving a tractor-trailer as a team with her husband since 2010. Along with their young son, they have driven through all contiguous 48 states and have experience with multiple types of trailers and equipment. Christen decided to become an insurance agent, specializing in trucking insurance, because so many truckers seem to struggle with finding the right coverage for their companies at a fair price. Using her experience in both worlds, she hopes to change that!

In her free time, Christen enjoys reading classic novels, watching British comedies, and taking Moon Pie to the dog park with the family.
