Welcome to Schield Insurance

Schield Insurance was founded in 2013 by Travis Schield. Formerly a co-founder and top producer at Schield-Leavitt Insurance Agency, Travis saw the opportunity to serve his clients once again with a client-centric focus. His entire mission is to provide a consultative approach to insurance, making it easy for his clients and placing their interests first. This is made possible by his affiliation with the largest independent agency alliance group.

As a firm, they strive to protect their clients' assets by addressing complex insurance needs through the development of innovative, customized insurance programs. By tailoring each program to an individual client, Schield Insurance provides significant value each and every time. Because of their ability to write policies with over 30 insurance companies, Schield Insurance closes 99% of the accounts they quote. This is due to their talent in creating innovative plans to mitigate risk, match clients with the right carriers, and lower premiums by an average to 20-30%. Clients reap the full benefits of Schield's extensive and wide-ranging experience in the insurance industry since 1990

Learn about Our Extensive Experience

RECEIVED CERTIFICATION AS COMMERCIAL LINES COVERAGE SPECIALIST: Travis received this certification as a national Underwriter in October of 2015. This training allowed him to further master the subject of commercial insurance lines coverage.

FOUNDED SCHIELD INSURANCE: After wholesale changes to the insurance industry in the years following the previous recession, Travis decided that he wanted to re-enter the insurance industry, but do it differently than before. As a result of his previous experience, where profitability and corporate mindset were #1, Travis decided to build an agency catered to high levels of service with strong resources as he’s backed by SIAA, the largest Insurance Group in the country.

AGENCY EXCELLENCE AWARD: This award was given to Schield-Leavitt insurance agency for 11 consecutive years in large part to Travis’s work as he was the top producer for the company, and in the Top 5 for the entire Group.
