Greetings, I’m happy to introduce myself. I’m Shawn Hellebuyck a licensed career insurance agent and insurance geek. It’s true, I’m fascinated with all things insurance. Our agency shares the value that we love coverage – we emulated insurance inspired. Inspired by you, inspired by your family, inspired to keep you and your family protect from the unforeseen life can bring. We believe choice in insurance is empowering and that is why we started Oakley Insurance Group, to allow our clients choice and input into their insurance coverage.
Prior to starting Oakley Insurance Group in 2015 I was a Farmers Insurance Agent for nine years where I received multiple awards for my achievements including: Topper Club; Farmers Championship; and in 2015 the Zurich Achievement reserved for the Top 100 Farmers Agents Nationally.
I grew up in the city of Chicago Illinois on Oakley Avenue (that name sounds familiar) and I was a lifeguard at Oak Street Beach in Chicago for seven years. If I wasn’t an insurance agent, I would still be an Oak Street Beach Lifeguard as that remains my second favorite occupation. I am proud to be a DePaul Blue Demon, a scholarship Track and Field, and Cross Country athlete for DePaul University. I received a B.A. in Communications and was recently inducted into the DePaul Athletics Hall of fame for Cross Country. I still run a few miles each morning, volunteer coach when I can, and I have completed several marathons.
Besides being a passionate insurance agent, and “Wine with The Sunset Aficionado”, I also volunteer for several pet rescues through Arizona. If you are in Tucson and you are interested in fostering pets, have homeless pets in your area, or need advice or assistance with pets in need, please reach out to us as we are a team of pet rescuers.
Tina has made insurance her career for over twenty-four years, continuously striving to provide the best in coverage and service for her clients. Tina worked with Shawn at Farmers insurance before Oakley Insurance Group existed. Now, Tina oversees Oakley’s personal lines ensuring our customers and their property are adequately covered. Tina goes to great lengths as an agent reviewing policy renewals, policy coverages, fluctuations in premiums industry wide, and taking time to make sure every customer completely understands coverage, what they need, and why.
Tina’s mission as an agent is to retain customers through unmatched customer service not only using her knowledge as an agent but also as a mother and wife who knows the importance of making sure her family is covered.
Tina’s vision as an agent is to continue to grow within the industry as the industry itself grows. She sees herself remaining an integral part of the Oakley team, and to hone her skills as an agent to continue covering families and individuals for the things in life that bring us joy, and fun.
When Tina’s not geeking out in insurance, she’s with her family. Her husband and her daughters are the soft gooey center of life and adores spending time with them. When they can, they will take their trailer up the mountain and get away for a bit, creating memories, and enjoying the company of fresh air and the bond of family time.
Fun, or not so fun fact, depending on who you ask: Tina doesn’t like coffee. *gasp*
“When I’m making sure your family is covered, I ask myself, if this were my home, or my car, would I feel comfortable with the coverage and limits I’m setting?” – Tina
Ann Marie has made insurance part of her life for thirty-two years, beginning her insurance journey as a senior in high school. She became licensed at the age of 18 and worked in Property and Casualty for seventeen years. After her initial time in property and casualty, Ann Marie spent 10 years in health insurance managing authorizations for procedures and medical billing, only to return to property and casualty thereafter.
Ann Marie has worked for Oakley Insurance Group for five years and has helped the commercial and business lines flourish by taking on the role of business and commercial lines manager. Just like the rest of the team, Ann Marie loves providing for her clients and making sure each business she works with has the coverage and coverage limits to cover their property and business exposures.
Ann Marie’s mission as an agent is to continue providing excellence in service through her skills and knowledge of the commercial insurance industry.
Ann Marie’s vision as an agent is to continue learning and growing in the commercial insurance industry while continuing to provide excellent professional service to clients. By continuing to learn and grow, her business clients are also able to learn and grow. “Business and Commercial insurance can be complicated, because unlike personal lines of insurance I’m not only responsible for making sure a single family is covered, but I am responsible to make sure the people in the business, the property in the business, the practices and operations of the business, and all the “what if’s” within those categories have sufficient coverage and protection.” – Ann Marie
When Ann Marie isn’t “insurance-ing” she enjoys gardening, cooking, and traveling, and is a second-generation native Tucsonan. She currently has three, four legged children whom she rescued.
Fun Fact: Ann Marie is a chocoholic, favoring dark chocolate over milk chocolate – yes, we know, she’s weird.
Micaiah is a southern boy at heart, being born in North Carolina and is sometimes referred to as a jack of all trades. After taking 4 years of culinary arts in High School he had worked in food and beverage until he was 23. His first introduction to insurance was working for a Health and Life agency in North Carolina in 2014. When the pandemic of 2019/2020 hit, he decided to take some of that time to begin training for his Health and Life license. After joining Oakley Insurance Group he began training for his Property and Casualty license and obtaining it shortly thereafter.
Micaiah brings diversity to Oakley in form of knowledge and experience. His previous position was a network support engineer for a local internet provider, working his way up from an entry-level customer service representative to second in command of the network. Bringing his tech knowledge, and experience from a previous marketing company he owned, he has been able to improve upon the existing foundation created at Oakley Insurance Group.
Micaiah’s vision as an agent is to provide customer service beyond expectations, and to set himself apart from other agencies and other agents. He will use various skills and knowledge to grow as an agent and to bring that growth to the agency.
Micaiah’s mission as an agent is to supply every customer he works with the knowledge and understanding they need to make coverage decisions based on that knowledge. Knowledge is empowering, and to him it is important that the choices his clients make are with the correct knowledge and information to do so.
When Micaiah isn’t helping his customers with their coverage there are many things he may be doing. Micaiah writes and arranges music for large orchestras; he is a techy and loves staying up to date on the newest technology and helping his friends, family, and even his workplace improve their tech; Micaiah is a federally licensed Private Pilot; sometimes just a chill night gaming is the move.
Fun fact: Other than his dad buying a computer in 2006, every computer Micaiah has owned has been self-built.
“Every agent is different, and every customer is different, so it’s important that our agency is diversified.” - Micaiah
"We worked with both Shawn and Tina. Both provided excellent service and were very thorough in explaining the coverages and costs. Insurance can be very tricky if you don't know what your doing. Having Shawn as a knowledgeable resource made the process much easier and we felt confident with our decision. Highly recommend the office for any of your insurance needs."
- Chris Towner

"Shawn, Cathy and the team at Oakley Insurance Group are a delight to work with. During a stressful experience of a car accident it was nice to know they had my back and best interest at heart.
Their team is also very personable, you will be treated with compassion, respect and kindness. Above all, you will receive excellent customer service, something that's sadly not as important as it used to be.
Thanks again Shawn and Team at Oakley Insurance Group! You're valued and appreciated!"
- T Hughes
