Noffsinger Insurance AgenciesMark Noffsinger

Western Michigan is my home and has allowed me to get in touch with many local families. My knowledge and understanding of the people in my community helps me to provide customers with an outstanding level of service, which has made my job as a Personal Financial Representative such an honor. I look forward to helping families like yours protect the things that are important to you – your family, home, car and more. I can also help you to prepare a strategy to achieve your financial goals.



Noffsinger Insurance AgenciesDeborah Poff

I joined the Noffsinger Agencies family in 2011 after learning my way throughout the Allstate industry for the past 21 years. I help manage our four West Michigan locations and have helped establish the service standards and culture of our agency.

When I’m not at work I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, entertaining, cooking, rooting for my favorite teams and traveling the world.

Ben Verbeek

I made my way over to Noffsinger last February where I moved from the independent side of the insurance world after I had been there for three years. Born and raised in Grandville, I went to Calvin Christian High School and then attended GVSU, where I played basketball for four years. My favorite part of my job is talking to the customer and getting to know them to find out how I can best help them and their family.

In my free time, I enjoy watching and coaching my girls, who are softball fanatics, through little league and now, travel teams. That’s why when I’m not in the office, the best way you can find me is if you check the field (I’m usually the one screaming and cheering). A fun fact about me is that I love to run and have actually completed eight marathons. My favorite part about being a member of the community is the help I do in organizing a ½ marathon and 5k here to benefit many different children’s charities.

Steve Wiegerink

In 2011 I joined the Noffsinger team as a part-time employee and got the honor of being promoted to full-time sales producer and trusted advisor in February of 2015. I grew up in East Grand Rapids and played lacrosse until it brought me to Central Michigan University as well as Mid-Michigan CC, where I’m currently pursuing a BS. What most excites me about my job is having a meaningful responsibility and the opportunity to construct a professional relationship.

 I love sports, enough to call in on radio shows to give input, but my biggest hobbies are TV/ movies, self-education, and the outdoors. When it’s nice outside, you can find me boating on the lake, fishing in Ada or grazing on the golf course. If the weather is lousy, you’ll find me at the YMCA, possibly Griff’s IceHouse or hanging out at home. But, no matter the weather, every Sunday you’ll find me at Church. My favorite way of giving back to the community is through service work. I’ve been to Trinidad and Tobago helping underprivileged youth as well as Chicago, New Orleans and of course, Grand Rapids.

Andy Miedema

I was licensed in December of 2014 and began working in the industry shortly after. I joined the Noffsinger team in November of 2015 and haven’t looked back since. I pride myself on giving great service and look forward to saving my client’s money while giving them the best coverage. Saving money is important and having the correct coverage can make a world of a difference, that’s why I’m so passionate about everything I do.

I enjoy video games, Netflix, and rock-climbing. I love summer and the opportunities I get to spend my days out on my boat with my friends and family. A fun fact about me is that I’m the kind of guy that will eat anything you suggest, so next time you see me make sure to make a suggestion! My favorite way of getting involved with the community is through Kids food Basket, which prepares school lunches for kids in the Greater Grand Rapids area. We’ve even got a record of 1,000 lunches made in an hour or so!

Linda Cooper

I got licensed in 2003 and moved over to Noffsinger in 2007. I grew up in an army family in Northern Michigan. The best part of my job is helping and educating people about the industry so they can make smart decisions about what is the best fit for them.

I love to all things horse related, reading, shooting targets, old muscle cars, and ballroom dancing. Weekends I think are made for dancing and Church, and my family and I are active members within helping our Church give back.

I joined Noffsinger right after graduating Grand Valley State University. I began my career at the Henry Street location and moved my way around into the Lakes Mall location.

 When I’m not checking people’s protection on the road, I enjoy spending time with my beautiful wife and son. I love camping and riding the Silver Lake Sand Dunes, which is most likely where you’ll find me if I’m not in the office.

Noffsinger Insurance AgenciesJoshua Kotecki

I grew up in Fruitport before I made my way to Michigan State University. I work hard to make sure different clients receive the full, proper protection for their insurance needs. 

When I’m not working, I enjoy hunting, fishing, hiking, and spending (way too much) time outdoors.  I love my alma mater and everything football and basketball, so you can find me watching a Detroit Lions or MSU game throughout the year. While I love Italy and France, my favorite vacation spot is Nashville. If I wasn’t at Noffsinger, I believe I would have my own farm raising many animals including goats and llamas.

Kevin Nelson

I joined the Noffsinger team in January 2015 and loved it ever since. I love being able to help our agency and the community build and develop better relationships with clients, improving our marketing and taking on new challenges every day.

I grew up in Muskegon, Michigan and love spending my free-time outdoors. I’m a family man and love my wonderful fiancé and three daughters. In my spare time, I enjoy dirt racing Dirt Late Models and supporting our local race tracks! On the weekends, you can find me at one of the many race tracks across the state, but in the winter I’m usually at the Winter Sports Complex.

Noffsinger Insurance AgenciesStephen Weesies

I’ve been working as a licensed producer for Noffsinger since December of 2012. I was born and raised here in West Michigan where I graduated from Muskegon Community College and later attended Ferris State University for Criminal Justice. As a trusted advisor, I pride myself on listening to our clients and helping them with all of their insurance needs.

Prior to the insurance industry, I was a store manager for six years at a big box retail store. I love living in the area with my wife and our two children. My hobbies include boating, fishing, golf, and spending time with my family.

Melissa Fox

I have over fifteen years in the insurance industry, but what really drives me and encourages me to keep going is meeting new people and helping them get protected. Born in North Muskegon, I graduated from Reeths Puffer High School in 1999 where I started in the industry while I attended Baker College. I love educating people about their insurance needs and giving them a better understanding of what they’re paying for.

I have become a soccer mom from my adorable boy, who loves Spring, Fall, indoor, sand and travel soccer. When I’m not at work you can find me on th4e sidelines of the field cheering on my son unless it’s Sunday, where you’ll hear me belting my lungs out singing on stage at Church.

April Nadeau

I’ve worked with Allstate for a while now, spending seven years in Chicago with my father-in-law’s agency before he retired. I grew up in Grand Haven, Michigan and currently live there now. I love working directly with customers and I really enjoy helping them connect the dots so they can see value in our products.

While I love working at Noffsinger, my number one job is my kids as they are the center of everything I do. When I’m not working, you can find me outside riding bikes, at the lake, camping or just enjoying the fresh air with family. If I ever go missing from the office, make sure to check the Grand Traverse Pie Company as I have a guilty pleasure for sweets and the control is a struggle
