“I would like to introduce myself as your new COUNTRY Financial Insurance Agent,” Lindsey Franke said. “ I’m so excited to join the COUNTRY Financial team and look forward to giving back to our community and working for you.”

Franke  grew up in and currently resides in Hardin, Il.  Franke’s parents are Carol (Gary) Isringhausen and Jeff Franke and her  grandparents are Elsie (Bud) Kirn, Dewayne Franke, and Della and George Presley who all are from Calhoun County, IL. I’m a member of St. Norbert’s Catholic Church and attended high school at Calhoun High School in Hardin.

“ I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Legal Studies and a Master of Business Administration from Maryville University in Saint Louis,” Franke said. “During college and after graduation, I spent 5 years working for State Farm Insurance Agency in Saint Louis, MO. During my time there I was a Sales/Service Representative where I produced and serviced over 5,000 policies.” Franke mentioned that an  opportunity came up  to work closer to home, she couldn’t turn it down. She spent the last four years as a consumer and small business banker for Bank of America, N.A. in Edwardsville, Il.

“After working for two of the largest corporations in the country, I thought for sure I would become a CEO of some sort. State Farm Insurance and Bank of America, NA have taught me hard work, insurance and financial literacy, and the importance of helping others,” Franke said. When the opportunity for COUNTRY Financial came up, Franke was happy to get back to her roots, here in Calhoun County and work for the people that she loved the most.

“When I’m not working, you’ll find me out and about enjoying this amazing community. I’m always on the go with my boyfriend Aaron and his son Knox along with my three dogs Bo (chocolate lab), Hank (black lab), and Rowdy (yellow lab).,” Franke said. “ We enjoy all types of hunting, going for rides on the mule, spending time on and in the river, exploring our family farms, and being with our friends and family.”
