Sarah Lampard Headshot

Sarah Lampard


In 1981, after graduating from Valparaiso University, I headed West to the beautiful Colorado rockies in hopes of launching my career and starting a family. It was here in Colorado, where I joined Xerox Corporation and specialized in strategic “sales” accounts for 24 years before launching the Lampard Agency with American Family. I then set out to develop a specialized independent agency, Avalue Insurance, which I founded in 2010.

I am a proud mother of three amazing children who inspire me everyday. I am often reminded when I look into the beautiful skies and climb our majestic mountains that their father is looking over us from heaven.
