I love to bird watch. Binoculars and all! My kids make fun of me, but I really get a kick out of it.

Jennifer Gray
Associate Agent

I have been with the McClure Group for almost four years. Delivering exceptional customer service while under promising and over delivering results are important to me. I enjoy helping our members find the best policies that work for them instead of them working to make their premium payment every month! I LOVE my job! Every day I can make an improvement to someone’s life while helping them save money without sacrificing coverage is always my end goal.

I am a small town gal, at heart. I grew up in Northwest Ohio in a rather small family. Community involvement is important to me because I feel we are only as strong as the sum of our parts!

I strive to empower and impact others, every chance I get. I am passionate about animals, volunteering for schools, non-profit organizations, and community causes.

When I am not working you can catch me at a local music venue, producing a radio show which I host, or checking out the latest art exhibit at the Toledo Art Museum. I tend to be a rather introverted person so I like events that allow me to explore my adventurous and artistic side with my friends.

I love volunteering for the local animal rescue groups and food banks.

I hold the insurance industry CPCU and AAI professional designations.

Our main purpose is to always strive to make a potentially negative situation into a positive one while reinforcing the client’s decision to choose us as their insurance professional.

I enjoy music, sports, traveling, reading, good wine, but most of all spending time with my family-4 children and 8 grandchildren. When asked what I can’t stop talking about…just name the subject. I NEVER stop talking!!

Depending on the season, my wife and I are either traveling or enjoying our backyard “resort” with neighbors and friends. Chef Ken enjoys grilling out whenever he can! I enjoy music of all kinds and can often be heard singing along. It’s uncanny how the words to my favorite 60’s music always come back!

Christine Johnston

I have worked in the Life and Financial field since 1997. Starting in banking, then progressed with other large Insurance & Financial companies prior to finding my home with McClure Group.

I love working with families and small businesses. It is exciting working together to create a plan for success. Being able to see families and small businesses flourish from the plans is the best feeling.

I grew up and still live on the shore of Lake Erie on Catawba Island. I studied at Ohio University, Terra State Community College as well as the University of Phoenix.

Personal growth is my guilty pleasure. I love the knowledge, serenity, and confidence you absorb as you go through this crazy thing called life. I like the person I am becoming with each wrinkle. Now that my two children are living on their own and I am not tied to my kitchen, I can be found reading a good book while absorbing sunshine on and around the Lake Erie Islands. I am a beach bum.

I am known to frequent the local Human Society. However, it is so difficult not to bring all their sweet little faces home. My family and I are passionate about the Back to the Wild, Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Castalia, Ohio. If you have not been there, you need to visit. I am also a supporter of 4Ocean, an organization working to clean the ocean and coastlines, one pound at a time.

Here, we believe in building lasting relationships based on the foundation of compassion and trust.

Julee Peterson

I graduated with a bachelor’s in English Literature from Ohio Northern University and thought | would live in Paris writing romance novels and eating baguettes with too much butter! Well, as you can expect, that is not exactly the direction my life took me. My first job was teaching AP English at a small, rural school in Ohio, not exactly the iconic cobblestoned streets of France. After that, I dedicated my life to my two beautiful girls and loved every minute spent in my new role as wife and mother.

Fast forward 15 years and I realize I want new challenges and the thrill of commission sales sparks my creative energies. Joining a construction firm as a recruiter fuels my love of people and the commission structure rewards me for a job well done…win-win right? Long hours and missed dinners with my family left me searching for a better fit. Fortunately, a colleague saw my strengths and introduced me to McClure Insurance Group. I passed my licensing exam and life as an insurance agent has exceeded my expectations. My personal lines career allows me to protect what we all value most: our families. Offering my clients comfort and peace of mind gives my work meaning.

When I am not working, you will most likely find me walking my rescue dog Teddy, researching design blogs for inspiration, or begging my family to watch Pride and Prejudice just one last time.

I have been married to my wife, Becky, for 42 years. Between the two of us, we have six children and 17 grandchildren. Travel, sports, and remodeling homes keep me busy in my spare time.
