"My main focus is working with you to provide the protection you need for your business, home, auto, life, and health insurance needs. Our agency has an excellent blend of companies to ensure your insurance plan is tailored to your needs.

I am a member of the Holy Spirit Catholic Church, a supporter of youth programs as a coach and sponsor, and a strong advocate for children with special needs. I am also involved with a number of community groups. I have served as the President of the Board of Directors for the HELP!Line Center and I currently serve as the past president of Sioux Falls Youth Hockey. A recent accomplishment has been working as a part of the Ice Sports Association Cabinet to bring a quality indoor ice facility to Sioux Falls. I firmly believe that it is our responsibility to make our community the best it can be for all people."

He grew up in Dunlap, IA and is a graduate of the University of SD where he was a member of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity. He currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Independent Insurance Agents of Sioux Falls.

"While my main focus is on providing our existing customers with the best service I can, I also work with new accounts. With the wide variety of companies that we have available, I show them how we can increase their protection while lowering their cost. Our agency does not believe in a "one size fits all" approach to insurance. We recognize that each individual and family is unique and we work hard to meet the needs of our customers." 

Sheldon is a strong supporter of the Children's Miracle Network, Sanford Health Foundation, and the United Way. He worked with CITC to bring a community indoor tennis center to Sioux Falls to open up tennis year round to all those who wish to play.
