Born and raised in Santa Cruz, I am proud to be your local Farmers Insurance® Agent located in Soquel, serving Santa Cruz county, the Bay Area, and the entire state of California. Living here all my life has afforded me the unique opportunity to not only understand our amazing community but also take great pride in protecting the area that we live in. Give me a call and we can discuss all your options for Auto, Home, Life, Workers Compensation, protecting my fellow small business owners, and more!

At the Tedsen Insurance Agency, our focus is always on putting our customers first and forming long-lasting relationships built on trust and education. We want every customer to have a uniquely individual experience, focusing on only the policies you need, ensuring quality over quantity. We are extremely involved with our local community and pride ourselves on giving back by being involved with numerous non-profit organizations across the country.

You have countless choices when it comes to who you work with on your insurance. If you work with us, you can know that your business is helping us to do more for the community that we are all a part of.

We are a family-owned and operated agency with over 20 years of combined insurance industry experience. My mother opened her first Farmers agency over 15 years ago and she along with my brother and I have the knowledge and skillset to help you better understand your coverage options. I invite you to stop by our office which is conveniently located in the heart of Soquel Village, off the corner of Soquel Drive and Main St, and if you ever want to grab a coffee, we are just a quick walk from The Ugly Mug. I look forward to meeting you in person or chatting over the phone and welcoming you to the Farmers family.

At the Tedsen Insurance Agency, we believe in value over price. This is why we will advise you and your family on coverage and liability limits that will actually give you the peace of mind you deserve.

We treat each one of our clients like family and we do everything we can to make sure our family is taken care of.

Our mission is to exceed expectations. We identify what matters most to you and offer solutions to protect it.

TACT- Teaching the Autism Community Trades

The autism community is the highest unemployment sector in the country at 90%. T.A.C.T’s programs lead to employable jobs and lasting careers. However, our goal isn’t just to get a job. It’s getting the right job – in the right place that is personally fulfilling to each student based on their strengths.

Our transition program is unique and unlike any other program in the country. T.A.C.T is the first and only trade program for individuals with autism available. Our students learn so much more than just a trade.

Jacob's Heart- Children's Cancer Support Services

We provide family-centered care that addresses the emotional, practical and financial struggles for families of children and teens during treatment, families experiencing anticipatory grief and those who are bereaved.

We envision a community where every child with a serious or life-threatening condition has a strong, supported and informed family empowered to fully participate in their care. We strive to inspire compassionate action within local communities to create a safety net of support for the unique needs of each child and family.

Finding Sophia- Women Building Homes, Remodeling Lives.

Ten years ago, Trish Ward and Heidi Boynton had been working with other teams building houses in Mexico. They were cool experiences and gave them a spark for a different kind of trip. Both Trish and Heidi have always had a passion for creating platforms for women to see themselves, their abilities and potential in a new and different light. After years of building houses with the larger teams, they wondered back in 2007 - what would it be like to bring a group of women together for a 3 day weekend of giving and learning? Could they design a trip that was a retreat AND service project? They reached out Hector, THE main man in Mexico who builds hundreds of houses every year and asked him what he thought..."Could 15 women build a house in a day?", His answer, "Of course!". With that confirmation from Hector, Finding Sophia began.

Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

LLS is at the forefront of the fight to cure cancer. Compared to other blood cancer nonprofits, LLS is the largest funder of cutting-edge research to advance cures. We have invested nearly $1.3 billion in research. We are leaders in advancing breakthroughs in immunotherapy, genomics and personalized medicine. This research saves lives. These revolutionary new treatments originally discovered through blood cancer research are now being tested in clinical trials for other cancers.

In the simplest explanation, The Village is about bringing together a group of people who really care about others and want to do their part in giving back to our amazing community.

Each quarter we will hold a Village event at a locally owned business. It will be a fun night spending time with other members and meeting new friends. At the end of the night we will vote on the nonprofit that we will be supporting for that quarter. For every member, $100 is donated directly to the nonprofit we choose each meeting. The more members we have the larger our contribution. If for any reason you cannot make the meetings, we will have a way to stream the event and take your vote remotely.

We have so many nonprofits in Santa Cruz and the goal of The Village is to support them in the following ways:

Exposure. As a new nonprofit with a limited marketing budget it is hard to get your name out there. Through the Village, every member has the opportunity to nominate a non-profit that means something special to them. The larger our membership base is, the more exposure that non-profit is going to get.

Marketing videos. Each quarter, we will pick 3 nonprofits from the nominations. Our team will go out to the 3 nonprofits and work with them to create a professional quality marketing video that highlights their organization. These videos will be played at our quarterly events and then we will vote to determine which one gets the donation that quarter. We will provide each nonprofit with their videos completely free of charge so that they can use it on all of their marketing channels. When we meet for our quarterly events, we will watch the 3 videos to determine which nonprofit each member wants to vote for.

Financial support. The amount that we donate will be dependent on the size of our membership base. It’s a lofty goal, but I would love to see the Village grow to a membership of 100 people so that we can donate $10,000 each quarter to a local nonprofit.
