Meet Our Agents

Carrie Brown

My employment with Black Hawk Insurance started in 1994 when I earned my insurance license.  I am licensed to sell Personal & Commercial Lines of insurance and Health & Life insurance.  Working at Black Hawk Insurance is a joy because we have a great team of respected and experienced agents.

When I am having fun away from the office I enjoy reading and spending time with my family.  My husband, Derek, and I have three children to keep us active – Nick, Ellie & Sofia.  We all enjoy traveling and especially are fond of relaxing at my mom’s condo in Florida.  When we are at home in Hudson, we have fun cheering for Panther Football at my alma mater, the University of Northern Iowa.

I have been in the insurance industry for over 17 years and have had the pleasure of being employed at Black Hawk Insurance for the last 13 years.  I am licensed in both personal and commercial lines of insurance; the most rewarding part has been building strong relationships with my customers. At home I enjoy spending time with my husband Chad, my son Tyler and my daughter Emily.  We are huge nature lovers, so camping, running, gardening, and riding bikes are just some activities we like to do together.  Recently I completed my first half marathon and looking forward to continuing to challenge my body and mind.
Debbie Paine
I have been in the insurance industry for over 31 years, 11 of which have been with Black Hawk Insurance.  I enjoy working with Black Hawk Insurance and consider my co-workers my family. My son, daughter and in-laws all live in West Des Moines so that is my favorite town to visit and thanks to GPS, I do it often.  At home I have two dogs and a cat who think my husband and I are their pets and not the other way around.  We can’t imagine life without our beloved pets and someday want to have a shelter for dogs. In my spare time I like to read my Kindle, shop for bargains and see movies with my friends in Grundy Center.  Halloween is my favorite time of year and to keep it interesting, I plan a year ahead for the theme.  Check the website, our Facebook page or come in to see our costumes!
