Brock Means is a Partner at Means Financial & Insurance Services and has been in the insurance industry for 15 years. Together, with Mark Means, whom founded MFIS in 2004, manages all general operations, new business production and client relations. He loves being in the insurance business because it’s an industry where everyday offers new opportunities and creativity.
Before joining Means Financial, Brock studied in Arizona and moved to San Diego, CA shortly after college. Outside of MFIS his primary focus is on his wife and 3 miniature Dachshunds (Bella, Toby and Clyde) – and when time permits Brock enjoys fishing, golfing, billiards, mountain biking, camping and boating as much as possible.
Carlie Scharing is a partner at Means Financial and Insurance Services and has been part of the agency for over two years. Carlie has known the Means family for over 20 years as both families grew up in the same church together in the early 2000s. She is the agency’s Senior Client Advisor and handles all personal lines-related client care. While insurance was not her initial career focus – after graduating with both Bachelors and Masters Degrees of Science in Kinesiology – she has found that the primary focus of both her studies, and the insurance industry, mesh quite well – which is to be proactive rather than reactive.
Outside of MFIS Carlie enjoys lifting heavy at the gym, country line dancing, and spending time with friends and family. She is also very active and present in her local church where she serves in the young adult ministry, leading a connect group, and weekly women’s prayer
