Amy Arnold


Hello, and thanks for visiting our website.  My name is Amy Arnold and I am the owner of Arnold Insurance Agency.  I started my career in the insurance industry many years ago.  It was a great experience and one that I enjoyed very much.  I changed careers after getting married and began working for a global corporation that specializes in business-to-business office supply needs.  After 11 years with this company, I decided it was time to get back into the insurance industry.  I had the very fortunate opportunity to work with AAA of Michigan and was able to open up my own agency.  We opened our doors in October of 2014 and it’s been an amazing journey ever since.

My husband and I are raising 3 children, all of whom attend Pinckney Community Schools.  My husband organizes and coaches a travel softball league for girls ages 8-18.  We are very active with sports and within our community.  My family and I spend a good amount of our time, outside of work and school, participating in community-related events and community sports.

Insurance is something I’m passionate about.  This community is something I’m passionate about.  I want nothing more than to be able to provide my customers with the protection they need.  And we do that by getting to know who they are and what those needs might be.  Go back in time, 20 or 30 years, when customer service was one of the most important things.  That’s who we are.  That’s what we strive to be.  Let’s have a cup of coffee and talk about how we can help protect what matters most.

Kia Kierst


Hi, my name is Kia Kierst.  I was born and raised in Ann Arbor and graduated from Pioneer High School in 1994.  Grand Valley State University is my alma mater, where I received my BS Degree in Movement Science. Pinckney is now my home.  The first 20 years of my professional career, I worked in retail Management where I coached and developed teams on building relationships and driving a customer centric environment.

I married my husband James, in 2009. Once we decided to grow our family, I decided that I needed a more family-centered career. My children are my pride and joy, Gracie 4, Gabby 6 and Madison 20. They are what brought me here, to Arnold Insurance Agency, a family owned company, where I am an Authorized Insurance Agent. I joined the team in September of 2016. My customer service expertise allows me to service my clients and build long lasting relationships. I truly enjoy working in my community and getting to know the families around me. My favorite past-times are golfing and reading.

Michelle McNamara


I am Michelle McNamara and I joined AAA, Arnold Agency, in May 2017. I live in Pinckney and love that I am able to work in the community in which I live. I previously worked in the banking industry for 10 years and enjoyed working with individuals to make their financial goals possible. I have a passion for helping people, so the insurance industry has been a smooth transition for me. I am a licensed insurance agent specializing in property and casualty insurance. I received a Bachelor’s degree from Michigan State University (Go Green!) a ‘few’ years ago. When out of the office, I enjoy gardening, scrapbooking, and spending time with my husband, of 31 years, and our 3 wonderful children and beautiful granddaughter.
