My family is originally from Fresno California, and we have been serving the Shawano Community with incredible service since 2011. My husband, Michael and my son, Grant, work here in the office with me. Michael is ready to help you with all of your home and auto needs, Grant is ready to take your payments and assist with claims and I help many of our customers with their life insurance and financial services as well as small business insurance.

We love Shawano and are so happy we made it our home. The Shawano Chamber of Commerce named my husband and I the "Distinguished Citizens of the Year" in 2021 because of the extensive involvement we have in the Shawano Community. Some of those things are Rotary International Youth Exchange program, Red River Riders, Shawano Optimists and the Shawano Business Improvement District. I have also served on the Board of Shawano Dollars for Scholars, and was the first "Big Sister" matched in the Shawano Chapter of Big Brothers/Big Sisters when it was founded in 2014. My team member (and husband) Michael, is also the local Coordinator for the Shawano Toys for Tots program. As you can see, we believe strongly in programs for youth and we do our part to give back to our community and make a difference.

Both of my sons graduated from Shawano High and attended college here in Wisconsin. I am now the proud Grandma of 2 adorable grandchildren who are attending Shawano Schools. We support the Shawano Music boosters and attend many of the school events.

Michael Johnston

Office Manager

I was raised in Fresno, where I met and married Idell. We have celebrated more than 30 years together to date. We moved to the Shawano Area in 2007. I worked in the fire truck industry before coming to work with Idell in 2014. We have raised two sons in Shawano, and now have two granddaughters who keep life interesting. My favorite hobbies are watching baseball and traveling the US. I am here to help you with your home and auto insurance needs, as well as life and health insurance.

Grant Johnston

Account Representative

After attending college in Green Bay and getting married, I began my career here at my Idell's office in 2019. You might have seen my my daughters in the office when they were babies. Now they are in school and keep us very busy! In my spare time, I love to watch sports of all kinds. I enjoy watching the Green Bay football team, but I am still partial to my California Baseball team in Anaheim.
