Customer Service Representative
I grew up on a farm in North Dakota. After surviving the big flood of 1997 in Grand Forks, my husband and I moved to the beautiful Black Hills. (And YES! Having the right insurance makes a big difference!) Hobbies include camping, knitting and weaving. I have been at the Gene Hufford Agency since 2014 and I’m licensed in commercial lines, property, casualty and life. It would be my privilege to work with you!

Isabella Hernandez

Customer Service Representative
I grew up in Huron, SD. I moved out of my parent’s house a week after I turned 18 and ended up following them to Box Elder almost a year after they moved there, finally ending up with my own place in Rapid City in 2023. I have 2 dogs that I love to go hiking with on the weekends and I could talk about forever if you let me. I started at Gene Hufford’s Agency early March of 2023. With my wonderful coworkers to train me, adjusting to this new experience has been easy, I’ve completed my Property & Casualty license, and am now studying for my Life license. I’m beyond excited to start doing business with you! :)
