Karen Reinhold, 2019-2020 President

Karen Reinhold, State Farm Insurance in Camp Verde, AZ

Karen loves being in a “helping profession” which is why she’s been a

State Farm Agent for over 30 years, with no intention of retiring. Insurance can

be complicated -- Karen knows that -- but she also believes that it doesn’t need to be difficult. Karen’s key to business is giving her clients her full attention and treating them like family. 


She takes the time to explain the insurance process so they can feel certain 

they understand what they have and how it works. Though paid to sell, 

she sees her job as one of education and problem-solving first. 


Karen works hard to make sure her clients know that they are valued, appreciated and,

most importantly, protected. Karen is a proud mom, supports many of our area’s

schools and charities, was a founding member of Professional Women’s Group,

past President of Sedona Professionals, current VP of NAWBO, and has won Best

of the Best Insurance Agency for the past 13 years.

Angela Lozano, Treasurer

Angie Lozano, Owner & Founder of Angies House

Angie is a Verde Valley native with a BA in Accounting from NAU, spent several years 

working in the field until landing her dream job as Chief Financial Officer 

for several high-end luxury resort corporations. 


An unexpected layoff in 2000 prompted a 180-degree career change.  As a frugal entrepreneur, she had purchased numerous rental properties and initially planned to become a landlord full time. However, there was a huge need for affordable housing 

and the need was unmet in the community. 


Angie created Angie’s House in 2000 and began transforming her rental properties into affordable housing for seniors, mentally ill, disabled, people in recovery, single moms, homeless and anyone in need of shelter. 4 years ago, she opened her own homeless shelter, the 1st pet friendly, coed homeless shelter in Northern Arizona. Angie’s House currently has 10 locations with 2 more in the works and collectively houses 125 plus individuals.


Angie views the opportunity to serve a population that would literally 

have no place to live as her passion. Angie’s House has had an incredible impact on the community and is proof one person can make a difference.
