Anita joined the PayneWest Insurance team as a commercial account specialist in 2016. Anita was born and raised in Farmington, Maine, and lived in Maine until making the 3,111 mile trek cross country to live in Montana.Anita has over 19 years’ experience in the insurance risk management industry starting as the receptionist of a local insurance agency while living in Maine. She is very excited to still be learning and sharing in this industry and her new home state of Montana. Who would have thought that a resume submission in Montana would lead to an interview in Camden, Maine, and a cross-country trek to employment and a new chapter in her life! Anita is very outgoing and looking forward to personally knowing all the wonderful employees and customers involved with PayneWest Insurance. She has volunteered with Maine 4-H Horse Program, serving on local, county and then state committees. She has also served on Mt Blue All Sports Boosters Committee helping to enhance sports programs at MBHS in Farmington, Maine. She has been a member of NAIW (now IAIP). In her free time, she has completed the TREK Across Maine twice, pedaling her bike aka "Mustang Sally" over 1,000 miles in one year while in training. She has loved and ridden horses since the mid 60's and is eagerly looking forward to riding in Big Sky Country with new found horse friends. Anita enjoys spending time with her family, relaxing with a good book or a sewing machine, constructing a new log cabin quilt, being outdoors with her two dogs or riding horses.
