Meet Our Team

Mitchell Wettstein

Agency Principal

As an insurance agent in Aurora, I’ve gotten to know a lot of local families. I enjoy being a part of the community, and building relationships is one of the best parts of my job. I know what life is like in Aurora — that we choose cars, homes, boats and more to fit our lifestyle and budget. I also know how important it is to do the same when it comes to protecting them. I look forward to getting to know you and helping you find the solutions that meet your needs.

 

Stephanie Troutman

Licensed Sales Professional

I have been serving our community through addressing insurance needs for four years.

Even though insurance can be a challenging topic, I love that I get to help people every day and be a part of a fantastic team in the process. When you choose the Wettstein Agencies, you are choosing to work with individuals who care about who you are and what your specific individual needs are.

I grew up in the Denver Metro Area, which gives me an understanding of the needs of our community. Colorado will always be home for me. I have almost completed my education at MSU: Double major in Finance and Management, double minor in Personal Finance and International Business, and a certificate in Leadership. Go Roadrunners! When I am not in the office, I am either studying or spending time with my newborn and three-year-old nieces.

I enjoy volunteering with Project Angel Heart, and I am passionate about giving back to the community.

 

Femi Ogungbenle

Customer Service Specialist

I have been in the Insurance Industry for four years as a Licensed Sales Professional. I love educating and making sure families have the proper protection.

I was born in Nigeria and came to the United States at the age of 13. I played soccer in High School and College and graduated from the University of Northern Colorado.

I love my two children, and I am a sports fanatic! During the weekends, you’ll probably find me spending time with my kids or playing basketball or soccer with friends.

I curious fact about me and that many people don’t know is that I love music and I play the piano.

Maria Del Carmen Mercado
License Sales Producer

Working for the Wettstein Insurance Agencies gives me peace of mind, knowing I’ll be in good hands for the rest of my career. I am really excited to see the difference I can make in our customer’s lives, but what most excites me about my job is getting to know people and be able to help them in their time of need.

I grew up in Mexico and lived there until I was 18. My experience for the last fourteen years has been in management with customer service and I have learned a lot through experience and presentation. I really enjoy being with friends and family when I’m not playing golf with my boyfriend. I also enjoy camping, fly fishing, riding my bike in the summer and spending time with my daughters at la cross games.

My boyfriend and I also like to participate in a yearly toy run that takes place before Christmas where we bring toys to children’s hospitals for kids battling cancer.

Sean Stewart

I have been working in insurance for almost two years. I got into it after a back injury in my last career. I love that my work is different every day and that I can help others in good times and bad.

I grew up mostly in Texas (6 years) and New Mexico (15 years). I attended NSMU and UNM. I love technology, especially Apple. The hardest part of insurance is that we can’t use Apple products!

On weekends, I’m usually relaxing or exploring the mountains on Saturday, and at the church on Sunday.

I play piano and sing really well, but I don’t like performing. I am very shy about it.

Paul Lavigne
Licensed Sales Professional

I have been in the Insurance Industry for one year, as a Licensed Sales Professional. I am really excited to see the difference I can make in our customer’s lives. I am originally from New York and Pennsylvania, but I was medically retired from the military at Fort Carson Colorado, then decided to stay. I have been retired since 2014 after 11.5 years of military service. I served as a medic in the military.

I know how important different lines of insurance can be, especially the peace of mind life insurance can provide to loved ones so I make it my mission that all of our customers fully understand their options. I love being a part of this industry because I know we are offering protections to our customers that will greatly impact them after an accident.

I have volunteered for many organizations. I’ve been a volunteer coach, volunteered to Better Opportunities for Single Soldiers, Volunteered for Boy Scouts, and Volunteer locally at the Springs Rescue Mission.
