Meet Our Team

Scott Scales

I’ve lived in central Indiana since 1984 and have two Allstate offices located in Frankfort and Lafayette. With Purdue University nearby, there are a lot of sports games, concerts, plays and cultural events here for locals to attend. I’m a huge sports fan, so being near a Big Ten University is something I really enjoy. Plus, my two sons and my daughter attended high school here, and I still like following the local sports teams.

Being involved in the community is an essential part of my work as an Allstate agent. My team and I belong to the local chambers of commerce, and I do a lot of work with The Crossing School, a charter high school that mentors kids in business and entrepreneurship. My wife, who is a nurse practitioner, and I also support the Purple Purse, an organization that provides resources to victims of domestic violence, as well as Riley Hospital for Children and Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital.

I became an Allstate agent in 2007, but I’ve been in the insurance business since 1984. I love working with customers and my staff. I genuinely look forward to coming to work every day. There is always something new to learn.I love having my daughter work as the agency manager at our Frankfort location. Our team includes 12 people on staff, including a Personal Financial Representative. Stop by and visit us to learn more about our home, auto, property, casualty and commercial insurance products.

Sarah Scales


I have been working in the insurance industry ever since I was allowed to start working. I started off for my dad doing filing and now I am the manager of the Lafayette office. I was born and raised in Lafayette, graduated from Lafayette Jeff and attended Ivy Tech. I love coming into work every day knowing I have the potential to really help people. My goal is to make sure everyone knows that we are their trusted advisors.

When I’m not working, I enjoy going to any sports-related events. I also spend a lot of my spare time at the gym and helping others in the community. I love to take weekend trips. I lived in Raleigh NC for a while and have a lot of friends here so I enjoy going there on the weekends. I also visit Nashville as well.

Mike Kolenda
Licensed Sales Professional

I have been servicing customers in insurance and financial services since 1992. I grew up in South Bend, IN and attended the University of Evansville. What I most enjoy about my position is that I get to help clients grow and protect their wealth.

Outside of work, you will catch me playing pool or out fishing. I spend my weekends cooking and doing projects around my house. I like creating and trying different chicken wing recipes. When it comes to giving back, I enjoy working with Habitat for Humanity and helping people with home ownership.

Nate Beach

Licensed Sales Producer

I have been in the industry for 5 years. I started working for a couple of different companies selling life & health insurance before joining Allstate. I grew up in Delphi, Indiana which is a small community about 20 minutes north east of Lafayette. One thing I like about the business is the fact that I am constantly helping people become familiar and understand the coverages they have. It is important to me that I do my best in making sure they are fully protected not only now, but in the future.

I enjoy spending time with my Fiancé and kids, going on vacation, hanging out with friends and family and playing golf. My life outside of work is very busy. I have kids in sports so on the weekends I can be found at some sporting event. If not there, I am at home or hanging out with friends or family.

Taylor Schermerhorn
Licensed Sales Producer

I have a lot of experience in customer service. My goal is to catapult into becoming a successful Insurance Producer. I was born in upstate New York and have lived in five different states: New York, Ohio, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, and Indiana. I have a bachelor’s degree in Business Management/Sports Management. I enjoy being able to help people out on many levels and my position at Scales Insurance allows me to do just that.

I am a really big sports fan and that keeps me busy year-round. One of my favorite ways to spend my time outside of work is to be with family and friends. One of my biggest interests are hunting/fishing and camping. I am very passionate about the Special Olympics and have helped out with multiple events.

Briseida Del Real

Sales Manager

I grew up in Frankfort – home of the Hot Dogs! All through school and up until now, I’ve always been involved in the community. Working for Scales Insurance allows me to help others and I love that about my position. It can be something just as simple as making a payment or trying to help them with a claim.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family. I love getting together with family and friends, having a cookout, or just hanging out. I also like to dance.

Mary Kay Davis

Licensed Sales Producer

I grew up in Frankfort, Indiana and have lived here all my life. I worked in the banking industry for many years before joining the Scales Insurance team. I love the fact that I have the knowledge of helping a customer with finding the right coverage and the best value for themselves and their family. I also enjoy the people I work with. We work really well together as a team.

Outside of work, I am usually spending time with my grandson and taking him to the park or working outside in the yard.

Stephanie Gentry
Licensed Sales Producer

I am new to the insurance industry and very excited to see what it has in store for me. I was born and raised in Lafayette IN and proud to call this beautiful city home. When I am not in the office I enjoy watching my kids play baseball. I can generally be found at the baseball field on the weeks with my family. I have always believed that knowledge is power, providing our customers with the proper knowledge and understanding of their policy is what I aim to provide.
