About Pam Baer
Prior to switching her career to insurance, Pam was a Business Manager for an alcohol and drug treatment center in the Midwest. She has been in the insurance industry since 1986 when she began working for R. N. Jones Agency, Inc. in Harlingen, Texas. Harlingen is near the Mexican border and on the Gulf coast which presents many special needs for clients. The complexity of writing in this location has provided her with extensive knowledge in working with excess & surplus lines markets. This knowledge was extremely helpful during a brief return to Nebraska from 2003 to 2007 where she worked with difficult to place accounts. During that period, she worked accounts in Nebraska, Colorado, South Dakota, Minnesota, and Missouri that were strictly meat processors. In 2007, she returned to her position at the Harlingen agency where she has been until a move back to Nebraska in 2015.

Native Nebraskans, Pam and her husband, Gary, now reside in Kearney. They have three sons who live in San Antonio, Kansas City, and Ohio. They also have four grandchildren.
