Recently Lauren Olson became the “go-to” person at Cascade Insurance Center for Mid Oregon members. For several years, locally-owned Cascade Insurance Center has been our Strategic Partner in serving much of our members’ insurance needs.

Cascade Insurance Center

From Cascade’s Bend Office at 1201 NW Wall St., Suite 100, they help Central Oregonians protect themselves with Auto, Homeowners, Business, Workers Compensation and Life Insurance. Being a broker, Cascade offers its customers the choice of several insurance carriers to find the best value, including Pacificsource, Safeco, Travelers, moda Health, AFLAC, and more.

Mid Oregon is happy to be working with Lauren, who, like John Gould who preceded her as our Cascade representative, has strong Central Oregon roots. Lauren is a 2000 graduate of Mt View High School in Bend and Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego with a bachelors degree in International Development and Business. She returns to Bend after 12 years and brings her husband Bo and children Adilyn and Harrison with her.

Meet Lauren, Home and Auto Expert

We thought you would like to get to know Lauren better, so we asked her some questions about herself and her approach to working with us and our members.

Do you have pets? One crazy Australian Shepard!

Any kids? A three year old boy and a one year old girl. Yes, my hands are full!

Favorite restaurant? Drake, it holds special meaning to me 

What insurance advice do you have for our members? Bundle! The more policies you have with one insurance company, the more discounts they will give you. And get an agent, we are helpers that cost nothing and can find you the best rate and policy. There is no reason not to use one.

What is your favorite part of being a Mid Oregon Credit Union Strategic Partner? Seeing how Mid Oregon Credit Union staff care about their members and the satisfaction they get from helping them. They are truly committed to the members’ well-being and I am proud to be part of an organization with those values.

We think Lauren is a great fit and exemplifies Mid Oregon’s motto of “Good Friends, Great Service”. We hope you agree!
