The Salem-Roanoke Chamber of Commerce held a well attended ribbon-cutting on June 27 for Alli Pickle’s new Farmers Insurance Office in the Spartan Square Courtyard. The office opened earlier in June.
Pickle is a graduate of Salem High School and attended Roanoke College, where she studied business. While she plans to complete her degree, her career with Farmers is on the fast track. “It’s just been kind of like drinking out of a fire hose, but I’ve learned a lot,” she said.
Her father has been with the company for 12 years, and “it was just something that I felt I wanted to do.”
