Baxter started his amazing life as a foster puppy in a litter of six. One day while visiting the office, Baxter met Josh Munsterman, who gave him a forever home. Before relocating to Bailey, Colorado, Baxter shared his love with the entire office. Baxter is the sweetest dog who is ecstatic to be greeted by anyone. Baxter is our Director of Smiles and was recently promoted to Canine Utility Talent Evaluator (CUTE) and is searching for new office dog candidates.

After growing up on a farm outside of Fargo, North Dakota , I relocated to Colorado in 2007. I graduated from Minnesota State University and I’m an avid North Dakota State football fan. I enjoy golf, skiing and camping with my wife, twin daughters and two dogs. We have a big heart for animals so we foster shelter dogs and puppies. After adopting our first dog in 2013, we realized these animals are truly a gift of pure love and we can’t imagine our lives without them.

My husband and I moved to Colorado once I graduated from Minnesota State University with a Mass Communications degree. We have twin daughters, two dogs and five fish. We ski, camp, golf and foster animals. I enjoy reading and a good conversation. I value insurance and am proud that Integrity First Insurance properly protects and is an educational resource for our clients. I love being part of this amazing team.
LANCE PARZYBOK
Agent | lance@integrityfirst.net
As a Colorado native, I have lived up and down the Front Range. I now live in Castle Rock with my wife and two children. I love to be outdoors and enjoy playing golf, as well as cheering for the Broncos. My mission is to create a streamlined approach for clients comparing insurance options. My belief is that an educated client will make better and realistic decisions about
insurance and will ultimately have the coverage they need and deserve.
KYLE LAHEY
Agent | kyle@integrityfirst.net
I grew up on a horse ranch in Wisconsin and know what strong work ethic really means. My family taught me that you’re only as good as your name and your word. I now try to instill these same values with my young family. Though I still love playing golf, basketball and riding horses, most of my time is spent working on my ranch or with my amazing family. I am a firm believer that buying insurance shouldn’t be a transaction, it should be a long-term relationship.
MARK SCHELDE
Agent | mark@integrityfirst.net
I moved to Colorado in 1984 to be a ski instructor. My daughter is the center of my life. I live in Eagle, Colorado and for the past 30 years, I have been building partnerships in sports marketing and working with commercial insurance. In 2017, I completed the Leadville Trail 100-mile mountain bike race and I ride single track trails in the summer and ski every weekend in the winter. My pride is building long-term relationships in life and business.
RICK GERACI
Agent | rick@integrityfirst.net
I moved to Colorado 20 years ago. I had been coming out here to enjoy all of the winter activities since I was a kid, and told myself at a very young age that I would be living out here. Winter sports are my passion, especially snowmobiling, so this was a natural fit for me. Growing up, I played baseball all the way through college, and still love the sport so much that I am playing today at age 50.
HEATHER YOUNGS
Agent | heather@integrityfirst.net
I grew up in West Palm Beach, Florida, and moved to Colorado 15 years ago. I am a proud momma of two teenage boys and love to live the Colorado lifestyle. Most of my time these days is spent watching their football games and chauffeuring them around town! I enjoy traveling, a good glass of wine, a nice mountain hike and a fun game of bowling! Creating relationships with my clients and providing the best customer service is what I strive for.
JOSH MUNSTERMAN
Agent | josh@integrityfirst.net
I moved to Colorado when I was 4 years old and I currently live in the beautiful mountains just outside of Bailey with my wife, two boys and two dogs. I enjoy many of the outdoor activities Colorado has to offer along with spending time with my family and friends. I love being able to help each of my clients understand the importance of proper coverage!

MELISSA SWANSON
Advisor | melissa@integrityfirst.net
After relocating from Michigan in 2008, Colorful Colorado stole my heart! I am a proud mother to my daughter, Shelby. We have a Pomeranian named Chester and a Maine Coon kitty named Sunny. After graduating with a degree in graphic design, I quickly realized that I wanted to work with and help people instead. That’s what really inspired me! I cannot tell you how good it feels to  be a part of a hard working team and a culture that cares!
GABBY VENNE
Advisor | gabby@integrityfirst.net

I was born and raised in Naples, Florida with my large Italian family where cooking and games were a huge part of my upbringing. I moved to Denver in 2017 with my dog Samson. I graduated from the University of Alabama (Roll Tide) and have been visiting Colorado almost every summer for the past 10 years. I love cooking, hanging out with friends, all outdoor activities, and anything that will get my adrenaline going like skydiving!

JACK BLUNI
Advisor | jack@integrityfirst.net
I am a Florida native and moved to Colorado in 2014. I am a proud UCF Knight and huge Florida Panthers fan. I live the "typical" Colorado lifestyle spending my winters snowboarding and my summers avoiding the heat by playing ice hockey. My girlfriend, Tina, and I have two birds — a cockatiel named Boyd and a budgie named Bruno. I am passionate about educating our clients and feel a great deal of satisfaction when a client becomes as excited about their insurance coverages as I am!
ALEXA EUDIS
Director of Education | alexa@integrityfirst.net
I am originally from Michigan but moved to Colorado when I was 5 years old. Colorado is my home, but when it comes to sports, my heart is in Michigan. In the fall, we cheer for the Michigan Wolverines and the Detroit Lions (even though the Lions usually lose). I enjoy spending time with my husband, Jacob, and exploring our beautiful state with our two dogs, Brady and Sage. Integrity First truly is different than the rest of the industry.
STEPHANIE BAUGHMAN
Director of Claims | stephanie@integrityfirst.net
I was born here in Colorado and I love the outdoors! I love hunting and fishing, along with relaxing with a good book or listening to music. We have two cats, Mason and Milo. They have huge personalities and are super spoiled! My husband has a lot of family in Pennsylvania so we like to visit them. We are huge Penn State fans! The best part of my job at Integrity First is having in-depth conversations with clients about coverages and claims and how I can best help them.
VANIDA BURRELL
Account Manager | vanida@integrityfirst.net
I enjoy golfing, working out, hiking and traveling. I volunteer as a mentor for the Save Our Youth program, and I have three grown children who have become awesome, independent adults. I was previously in the finance field for 20 years and recently decided to change gears and do something completely different, and got my insurance license. I thoroughly enjoy working here. I learn something new every day and have great co-workers and clients. Life is good!
EMILY ATKINSON
Account Manager | emily@integrityfirst.net

I am a Colorado native, and I love spending time with my family. We enjoy traveling up to the mountains and fishing on occasion. I love relaxing by drawing and painting every chance I get. I have been in the insurance industry for about six years and am very passionate about helping others. I want to ensure that each client is taken care of and very comfortable with their insurance.

COURTNEY PHILLIPY
Account Manager | courtney@integrityfirst.net

I was born and raised in Colorado and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else! I love camping, hiking, and most outdoor activities but won’t hesitate to sit down with a good book. My entire family lives here in this beautiful state and we enjoy getting together to watch the Broncos or Rockies, no matter what kind of score is on the board. I am excited to join the Integrity First Team to truly help clients find the proper coverage for any particular situation.

TRUDY CHRISTENSEN
Account Manager | trudy@integrityfirst.net
I am a Kansas native and moved to Colorado in 2018. I have twin 21-year-old daughters that are my pride and joy. My fur children are the ones I spoil though. I have a teacup Yorkie named Cooper and two cats, Koji and Kai. Cooper (all 5 pounds of him) rules the cats and the rest of the family – he should have been named Cujo! I am happy to have found a “home” here at Integrity First. I have over 14 years of experience in the insurance industry but have never encountered a group of professionals that care more about educating and doing right by their clients.
JOSE OROZCO
Processor | jose@integrityfirst.net
Iowa Proud! Born and raised in Northern Iowa. Relocated to Des Moines, Iowa 3 years ago and took on a new career path in Insurance. Every vacation I’ve spent was always in CO, it only seemed appropriate to move to the Denver area for the scenery, music and a faster paced atmosphere I’m looking for. No furry best friend yet, but that’s in the works.
MARISSA VANHULL
Office Administrator | marissa@integrityfirst.net
I’m a Michigan native who moved to Colorado a year ago with my fiancé. Yes, we are Detroit Lions fans! We love going to the mountains and we also spend a lot of time in downtown Denver. We have a cat named Riley and plan to get a puppy in the near future. I originally went to school for cosmetology but decided I wanted something more stable which is why I joined the Integrity First team. I am really excited for what the future holds!
JASON STOWELL
Director of Marketing | jason@integrityfirst.net
I am a Nebraska native (Go Big Red!), but grew up in Fort Collins, Colorado (Proud To Be!). My wife, Amber, and I have started looking into building a small, off-grid mountain cabin. I also enjoy fishing and driving the mountain backroads. We are both passionate about shelter pets and encouraging people to adopt. We have two adopted cats and we’re now ready to adopt our first dog.
