Hi! I am Dean Ellis, agent and owner of Ellis Insurance Agency. I grew up on a dairy farm east of Elbow Lake and went to college at North Dakota State University in Fargo. After receiving my degree in Agriculture, I worked at several agribusiness jobs and in 1982 was hired to run the insurance agency at Farmers State Bank in Evansville. In 1997, my wife Vicki and I purchased Sherwood Insurance in Elbow Lake. It is my good fortune to work with wonderful people every day. It is a great thing to have a job where you meet new people all the time and help them with their essential need of insurance. Call or stop by anytime, it is my pleasure to work for you!
I live in Elbow Lake with my wife Lynn and three young children. I grew up on dairy farm near Sebeka, MN, a small farm community. I lived in Minneapolis/St. Paul for 10 years where I received my degree in Psychology from the University of Minnesota. My family moved to Elbow Lake and I joined the Ellis Insurance team in 2018. I love the relational, authentic, and hardworking environment of Ellis Insurance. It is a joy to work with customers every day.
I grew up on a farm in the Norcross, Minnesota area and attended Campbell-Tintah high school. After high school, I attended and graduated from Minnesota State University-Moorhead with a degree in Accounting. In 1997, we bought Sherwood Insurance Agency in Elbow Lake. I have been managing the accounting for the agency since that time. It has been fun and rewarding to work at the Agency with Dean, Larry, and Sara. I have enjoyed seeing the business grow and change over the years.
Hi! My husband Derek & I, along with our boys live in Barrett MN. We were both raised in this amazing small-town area. I joined Ellis Insurance in 2019, and have loved learning about the industry and growing within it. I really enjoy working with people and helping them take care of their insurance needs.
