A Little History
Behind Our

Kathleen Lamphere has been licensed in the State of Minnesota since the Spring of 1986. She worked for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of MN for nearly 25 years before becoming an independent agent. She worked for Blue Chip Insurance Services for 9 years. Following an ownership change - she established Lamphere Insurance Group, LLC with her eldest son, David. Kathleen is passionate about insurance - and a self described insurance nerd. She loves what she does, treats each person like family and always tries to do “the right thing”.

Looking Back

1986 was a great year!  I married Wade, we bought a house, and I became an insurance agent. 1990 and 1991 were also great years when we welcomed our sons David and Steven.

Fast forward to current:  I’m still happily married to Wade, and since the nest was empty, we built a home on the prairie in Western MN. I split my time between in office and remote appointments.

I never would have guessed we’d start a business together – but I’m seriously happy that we did!
