Meet Our Team

Jim Shortridge


I have been with this agency since April 2011 and I’ve been in and around the insurance industry for quite a while. I live to be a blessing for others; that is my main focus behind everything I do. I’ve been a public speaker for many years and enjoy conversing with people from all walks of life.

I grew up in Oklahoma City and have a master’s degree from Concordia. When I am not working, I like to watch movies and sports and I love attending Oklahoma City Thunder basketball games. I also enjoy getting involved in the community and church activities. I volunteer with Teen Recovery Solutions and am passionate about helping today’s youth.

I have been with the Jim Shortridge Agency since November 2011. The best part about my job is meeting new people and helping them gain peace of mind knowing they are properly covered and protected.

I’ve grown up and lived in Oklahoma City my entire life. I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in marketing from the University of Central Oklahoma. I really enjoy spending time with my family, being involved with my church, and reading a good book. I danced for 13 years and still love it! I am also bilingual.

I love my dog, Mozzy! I love all animals, especially dogs. I am passionate about animal rescue and anything benefitting animals.

I’ve been with the Jim Shortridge Agency since July 2015. It has been the best job that I’ve ever had, and I get excited when we can get a client into a policy that provides great value for their investment.

I grew up in Oklahoma City, OK. I went to P.C. North High School. Outside of work, I enjoy hanging out with my family, friends, wife, two daughters, and our dog, Max.

I enjoy remodeling the house my wife and I just bought. I am a youth football coach where I have the pleasure of helping young men become great adults.

Maggie Gallegos


I have been in the insurance field since July 2013. My job here at our office focuses more on retention. One of the great things about my job is when I can assist our clients in answering all of their questions. Insurance can be complicated. I like to explain it in a way an average person can understand.

I was born and raised in Oklahoma City, south side to be more precise. My kids are the best part of my life. They keep me going and give me motivation.

If I am not at the office, you will catch me at home or at some type of children’s function/activity.  I love junk food. My desk is always filled with snacks.
