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 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. I have worked part time as the accountant at the Evansville School for a number of years. 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, Jul, and Larry. I have enjoyed seeing the business grow and change over the years.
I was raised on a dairy farm 8 miles west of Sebeka, Minnesota. I graduated from the University of Minnesota in 2011 with degrees in Psychology and Communication. After working for a college ministry for seven years, my family made the move from Saint Paul to Elbow Lake, and I joined the Ellis Insurance team. I enjoy helping people find good coverage at affordable prices and working hard to care for the needs of our customers.
