Annette Hale

Hello, my name is Annette Hale.  I’ve been with Compass Insurance Partners since 1989.  I came to “Metz Stoller, Inc.” after college and have been here since.  I started in commercial lines, moved to personal lines and then personal lines rating/review.   In the last 12 years, I’ve been doing crop insurance and small commercial accounts.

Recently, someone asked me what I love about my job and what has kept me here 31 years.   There are several reasons, but mainly I love our community filled with good, honest, hard working people.   I enjoy working with the farmers and crop insurance.  The crop insurance deadlines keep me in contact with them several times during the year, the planting, growing and harvest season.   Each year is different and I’ve learned so much from each farmer and my crop adjusters!

My Family

I have been in the Fairbury area most of my life.  My husband, Troy is self-employed.  He installs custom cabinetry, trim work and can do almost anything.  We have three children, Jenna, she completed her master’s degree in Special Education and is teaching in Arlington Heights.  Luke has his bachelor’s in nursing and is employed in the ICU at OSF St. Joseph hospital Bloomington.   Anna will be a junior at ISU, majoring in animal science, and enjoys working part time at a vet hospital. We all enjoy vacationing out west, hiking and the mountains.  We hope to visit many more National Parks together!

I am proud to part of the Compass Insurance Partners “team” and know that we will continue to grow in our community and the surrounding areas.
