FORT COLLINS, COLO. – Residents in and around Fort Collins can now experience a better way to buy insurance for their homes, vehicles and much more as Ashley Doebbeling has opened Brightway, The Doebbeling Agency.

“After 20 years on the operations side with a large captive insurer, I wanted to explore other creative options for insurance,” said Doebbeling. “I feel strongly that there are better ways to meet customer needs while making the shopping experience simple for customers, and Brightway’s model is perfectly aligned with that approach. Insurance can be a difficult subject to master, so we’re excited to be able to use this opportunity to make the insurance-shopping experience easier and more fulfilling for our friends and neighbors by bringing expert counsel and peace of mind to Fort Collins.”

Doebbeling brings to Brightway two decades of insurance experience. She earned her bachelor’s degree in Economics and Business from Agnes Scott College in Decatur, Georgia. Prior to joining Brightway, she worked as an Agency Field Specialist for State Farm in Northern Colorado, where she counseled agents on how to use technology to provide a better experience, and marketing. She also acted as a Fire Claim Representative for more than 10 years as part of the State Farm Insurance Catastrophe Team. Doebbeling holds the Chartered Property and Casualty Underwriter designation in addition to several designations from the American College of Financial Services. She looks forward to combining her insurance expertise and financial knowledge to ensure her customers and their assets are fully protected.

A resident of Northern Colorado since 2008, Doebbeling attends Front Range Baptist Church and acts as a Tiger den leader for a local Cub Scout pack, the team manager of a competitive youth soccer team and as president of the Le Jardin Homeowners Association of Fort Collins. When she’s not helping people with their insurance needs, Doebbeling enjoys hiking, mountain biking, snowboarding, cheering on the Denver Broncos and spending time with her husband, John, and their three children.

“It’s an exciting time for Brightway in Colorado as Ashley Doebbeling opens our first Agency in Fort Collins and joins our budding presence in the state,” said Brightway President Talman Howard. “Ashley is a highly experienced professional with an arsenal of knowledge in insurance and finance. We’re confident she will leverage her skills to build a successful agency and help her customers by putting together the customized packages of coverage they need.”
