Meet Our Team

Maria Golseth
Agency Owner

A Louisiana native, I am now a proud cajun girl living with my family in Colleyville, Texas. I have been in the insurance industry for nearly 10 years specializing in advanced life insurance planning, college funding strategies, as well as being an expert in property and casualty coverage.

After attending Northwestern State University in Nachitoches, Louisiana, I began my professional career serving almost 7 years in the U.S. Navy as an Air Traffic Control Specialist. I was recognized for a variety of achievements and for my advancement in rank and responsibility.

Today I operate two Agency locations (Bedford & Flower Mound, TX) where I oversee a staff of 8-10 insurance professional whose constant mission is “excellence in customer service.” Serving more than 3000 households in Texas is a big chore, but one I attack aggressively.

When I’m not at work, I love spending time with my five children Nick, Andy, Jacob, Abigail & little Nathan. I have been blessed to travel to many places with my amazing husband Chad, of 23 years and I work hard to balance life between work and home. When able I enjoy riding my 2 horses, playing golf and being active with my church family at Good Sheperd Catholic Community.

Education:
Other-United States Navy

April Alva
Agency Manager

I have been with Allstate for 11 years, specializing in customer support resolution and account management. I enjoy the daily personal interaction with customers of The Golseth Agency and I strive to provide them with the best possible customer experience. I am a born and raised Rhode Islander but moved to Texas 27 years ago after marrying a Texan. I love spending time with my three children, whether here at home, on the beach, at a rock concert or just going to a museum.

Sarah Almond
Senior Account Representative

Sales Associate

I am a Texas native born and raised in Dallas. I started with Allstate in 2007 with our National Catastrophe Team handling total loss claims. Over the years, I have taken on different roles with Allstate to see where I could hopefully make the biggest difference for our customers. Sales ended up being what called to me the most – I take pride in helping make sure our clients and their loved ones are properly protected.

Outside of work, I enjoy reading, exercising and spending time with my family and friends. Staying healthy and active is a huge priority in our family. On the weekends I try to do as many activities as I can including paddle boarding, hiking and kickboxing.

Social Media Coordinator

Social Media Coordinator

I am a born and raised Texan currently attending a Nuclear Medicine program after earning my Bachelor’s degree in Biology from UT. I work at the Golseth Agency remotely when not attending class, both coordinating the agency’s social media accounts and helping customers as a customer care associate. I love spending time on the beach, going to music festivals, and spoiling my 16 year old Burmese cat.

AmyKaye Young


I grew up in Abilene, Texas where I also attended Hardin Simmons University. I graduated in 2010 with my Bachelors in Behavioral Science and moved to Austin, Texas for a short period of time working and developing my passion to help people. I moved to the Dallas area in 2012 to pursue this passion and furthered my education in the medical field. I learned quickly that customer service and urgency to provide services for others was my true calling. I developed these skills for 5 years as a medical and surgical assistant in an Orthopedics specialty before pursuing customer service with Allstate.

I am new to the insurance field but I believe The Golseth Agency is the perfect match for my skill set. I enjoy interacting with customers and helping in any way that I can.

I recently got married in April 2017. My husband Judson and I love camping with our dogs and any outdoor time we can get. We also enjoy serving at the church where we met and hanging out with our 4 nephews and beautiful niece.

Casi Rawls


I am a small town girl from Oklahoma. I moved to Texas in 2011 to join Allstate. I’ve been working for Allstate for 6 years and specialize in sales.
I take pride in helping customers find coverage that fits their individual needs and protects their family.

When I’m not helping people at work, I enjoy spending time with my family and playing with my son. I am a big foodie so on the weekends I love trying out new places around DFW.

Claims Associate

I was born in Louisiana, growing up in Baton Rouge and played football until I joined the Army at 18. I was stationed in West Germany assigned to an aviation unit. I earned the Overseas Ribbon, Good Conduct Medal and Expert Marksman before receiving an honorable discharge for service.

My world revolves around my young, very talented and beautiful 9 year old daughter. I love spending my free time with her training in Krav Maga martial arts, going fishing, riding bikes, going to concerts, watching and playing football, drums, Cajun cooking and road trips back home to Louisiana for family reunions.

I have been with Allstate for 3 years, specializing in client portfolio management and claims. I feel very fortunate being in such an important position that enables me to advise and protect our family of clients.
