Meet the Team

Nathan Shoemaker, CIC, CLCS

President / CEO

I grew up in South Central PA, right outside the village of Newburg. I am a proud Bulldog, with a lot of friends and connections with Greyhounds and Trojans due to the three school districts meeting within a few miles of my childhood home.

In 2009, as a high school student, I started working part-time as a file clerk for our agency. About 10 years later, I took over the operations, and I am excited to keep working and growing with our family of clients.

I love people. I love helping them and pushing them to learn more and new things. I like learning what each person finds to be most important to them and finding how to ensure it is always there for them!

I am a Jesus-Freak. I don’t get it right many days, but my faith allows me to know that it’s ok not to be perfect. Jesus was focused on loving others – and that is what I try to do daily, personally and professionally.

As someone whose family describes them as a workaholic, I love to take cruises because it is one of the few places I can truly unplug from the day in and day out. I love spending time on, in, or around water – Boating, fishing, swimming are all some of my favorite things!

Stacy Runyon

Life & Health Agent

I was born in Carlisle and moved to Chambersburg when I was 7. I graduated from CASHS and went to Franklin County VoTech for business data processing.

I have 31 years in the medical field working with insurance. What excites me most about my job is being able to help people understand their health insurance plan before purchasing it.

I love being with my family and eating! We are always looking for new places to try. I love to shoot pool, and on the weekends, I tend to be walking, eating, or shooting pool.

Kari Dillman

Licensed Agent

I grew up in Roscoe, NY, where I graduated high school in 1993. I then went to the State University of NY at Oneonta. I graduated with a Bachelor’s in Business in 1999 after changing my major from Education.

I have worked in the insurance industry since October of 2001. In March of 2017, I came to work for Shoemaker’s Insurance. I enjoy helping my policyholders make sure they have the right coverage in the event of a loss.

I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I’m a big sports fan, and love watching games, football and softball are my favorite. I love my soap operas: Young and the Restless and The Bold and The Beautiful. I watch them every night!

When I’m not working, you can find me either at my nieces’ softball games or off on some adventure with family & friends.

I am passionate about giving to The American Cancer Society. I lost my mom to cancer and will support them on their mission to beat cancer.

Kiera Keefer

Personal Lines Manager

I grew up in McConnellsburg, PA. I graduated college with a degree in business management.

The insurance industry chose me when I was a senior in high school, participating in a co-op program. I then obtained my P&C insurance license in 2009.

I like kayaking, photography, and riding the motorcycle with my husband. I enjoy spending time with my family on the weekends, going to church, family dinners, and just having downtime.

Sharon H Youngblood

Personal Lines Agent / Notary

I grew up in upstate New York, where we lived outside the town in a rural area. I have a college degree in electrical engineering technology – which has absolutely nothing to do with insurance!

I started working for an insurance agency in 2008 as a part-time employee, which gave me the flexibility to still be there for my children. Over the years, my position grew, and I obtained my P&C insurance license in 2019. I like to help people, and that’s what insurance is all about.

I love spending time with my family, traveling and exploring new places, gardening, and being creative. I’m a homebody and enjoy spending quiet weekends at home.

Sara Rhine

I have had a successful career in customer service, and I genuinely enjoy helping people and educating them where I’m able. I enjoy spending time with my family and love being outdoors.
I have a passion for repurposing items and giving new meaning to anything that may be otherwise classified as junk. I like to spend my weekends at the cabin or around a campfire.

Kelsey Shoemaker

Associate Agent

I grew up in Ohio and then moved to Shippensburg, PA, when I was 12, where I have lived since. I am fairly new to the insurance agency with a year and a half of experience.

Being able to help others protect themselves and what is important to them is the most rewarding thing about my job.

I enjoy spending time with my husband and our two daughters. If I am not working, you can most likely find me at the ball field watching my husband play or at a cheer competition for my daughter.

I started my experience in insurance as a bookkeeper. I have been licensed in P&C and Life for the past five years. I love finding different businesses and researching what they do. Then, being a people person, I love going out to the businesses and meeting with their people.
I am guilty of having a wildlife site minimized when I am working to hear the Eagles fly in at Hanover PA. or hear the Elk bugle in Benezette, PA.
I spend a lot of my free time golfing. I also love crafting when I am sitting in front of the TV watching sports or Hallmark.

I was raised in Mercersburg, PA. I spent many years in the legal field and moved into the insurance industry in 2013.

I enjoy helping people better understand what their insurance does for them, how it works, and advising them on potential liability concerns by providing examples and possible remedies.

I enjoy spending time with my family, helping my husband with the farm work, watching my children participate in their extracurricular activities.

On the weekends, I can be found helping around the farm, enjoying my morning coffee on the porch, fussing with my flower garden, or attending a game or event for my children’s activities.

I am a board member for our local Little League, and I am also on the board for our local high school band boosters.
