Kelli grew up in Clayton with the king of insurance, her dad, Jim Kuntz. She is a mom to 3 and resides in Turtle Lake with her beautiful daughters. Kelli enjoys small town living and would follow a tractor any day over sitting in stop and go traffic. When she’s not at the office she enjoys the great outdoors by going for walks, boating, swimming, and trips on the bike. The girls and her also enjoy a good living room dance party.
Kelli started working in the agency while attending UW River Falls. In 2009, she completed an internship at Wisconsin Mutual Insurance Company in Madison, WI. Her career in the insurance industry started in 2010 after earning a bachelors degree in Marketing Communications and Business. Her goal is to take over the family business and continue to provide insurance options for our local communities. She is proud of the legacy her father has built.
I love being a mom
Sarcasm is my second language
Chocolate should be a food group
The thing I love most about my job is the opportunity to work alongside my dad for 11+ years

Jackie found her home at Lake Aire Agency in August of 2017. She received her insurance license in early 2008 and spent the first 10 years of her career selling life insurance. When the opportunity arose at Lake Aire, she was eager to learn the property/casualty side of insurance. Aside from the privilege of working for a wonderful family-owned business, her favorite thing about her job is getting to know so many people in the Turtle Lake community and she enjoys building lasting relationships with their many customers. In these times where technology is taking the world by storm, she still prefers the face-to-face interactions and getting to know people on a more personal level.
Jackie moved to the Turtle Lake area in 2010 after meeting her husband Ryan, a Clayton native. She quickly grew to love and appreciate the small-town lifestyle and they now live in Clayton with their 3 children. They enjoy spending as much family time outside as the Wisconsin weather allows, especially spending time on the lake (or ice!), grilling, and spending evenings sitting around a fire with oldies country playing in the background. When not at the office or chasing after kids, her favorite things are baking, going to outdoor concerts, and re-decorating her home.
