Meet Our Team

Joshua Mercer

Principal Agent

I’ve lived in Chicago my entire life. Through the years, I’ve come to know many local families and developed many relationships. This local connection has helped me better understand the needs of my insurance customers, especially when it comes to their financial needs. From retirement accounts to college savings, I’m available to help customers with a variety of financial solutions

I’m proud to be aligned with a top insurance company, which is committed to honesty, fairness, and integrity in all customer contacts involving the sale and servicing of individual life insurance and annuities. A commitment to ethics – I appreciate that.

I’m committed to showing you how our Insurance Agency is different and better than the rest. From sharing our broad product offerings for your protection and financial needs, to offering you a real relationship you can count on. I’ll help you prepare for your financial future and provide a higher standard of service, delivered wherever and whenever you need.

Stephanie Kondziolka

Risk Advisor

I am new to insurance but have worked in customer service for ten years. I am thrilled to be part of this team and ready to help with all of your insurance needs. I have the gift of being able to find positive in every situation and I love making people smile. When I’m not working hard to meet your insurance needs, I enjoy spending time with my three loving children.

Lavell Daniels

Risk Advisor

As your advisor, I’m here to help you understand your new policy, find all your discounts, and make sure you and your family are adequately protected. I’m going into my 1st year with the Mercer Allstate Agency and seek to provide the most remarkable service you’ve ever experienced. When I’m not taking care of our clients, I usually have my nose buried in a book or am spending time on my stock portfolio. Welcome to good hands.

While it’s great to serve my community, it’s most important to see that families and their loved ones, businesses, and organizations are educated on the importance of Life Insurance and the well-being of their future. Beginning my journey with Insurance allows me to implement years of Sales, Service and Management skills to better assist my community and fellow associates with a winning recipe.

Jennifer Mendoza

Service Advisor

I joined the Mercer Insurance team in September 2016. I am excited for what insurance has to offer! I have many years experience in customer service. Prior to insurance, I was a pre-school teacher assistant. I also had the privilege of accepting a position at Walt Disney World for a college internship. My past jobs have prepared me to help you with knowledge and a smile! Contact me with any questions and remember to ask about our $10 referral program!
