Nathan Bowen

State Director for Missouri, Insurance Licensed in Missouri and Washington



Nathan Bowen has always considered Lawrence County home, even while attending college. I was born and raised in Pierce City, in a family rich in civic legacy with small-town values. I was taught by my parents the values of family, patriotism, hard work, and faith. They taught him to always do the right thing, especially when no one is looking, and nourished ideas of civic duty, how to help others. During my formative years, I was a part of boy scouts. In addition to long-lasting friendships, the need to perform civic duties was solidified. All through my years of public school at Pierce City, I worked making things around him better, this allowed me to attend American Legion Missouri Boys State as a standout high school delegate. I worked while attending college, graduating with a B.A. in political science, his hopes were law school. However, in his last year of college, my father had several operations and resulted in total disability. After years of my father’s steady improvement, I left my long time job with Walmart and pursued my passion of helping people, this time in insurance. Here I work to help things go right, if things go wrong as an independent multi-line agent.

During my free time I explore the Ozarks while, fishing, hiking and relaxing.
