Meet Our Team

Roderick Crabbe
Agency Owner

I have been working at this location for 5+ years. I have been the Agency Owner for 2 years.

I grew up in Clearwater, FL. I earned my Bachelors in Business Admin. from the University of Florida and my Masters in Sports Management from Barry University in Miami Shores, FL.

I am proud that we do important work that is a lifesaver for people in their worst moments.

I enjoy watching my kids play youth sports and telling people the funny things they say!

If not attending youth sports practice or games; I love to watch pro sports and read. I enjoy attending live sports events (Jaguars, Jumbo Shrimp, The PLAYERS, Florida/Georgia).

I am a sports trivia nerd. Summer of 2016 I won an episode of Sports Jeopardy, hosted by Dan Patrick.

I am a former employee of the YMCA of Florida’s First Coast. I am a board member for the Clay County YMCAs.

Krystal Shoemaker
Customer Service Manager

I have 15 years experience in property and casualty insurance. I have worked for the Agency for 13 years. I grew up in Pensacola, FL and moved to the Orange Park area in 2012 with my husband for his job.

I enjoy educating customers on their everyday risks and being able to help ease the stress when going through a difficult time such as a claim.

My family is extremely important to me. I enjoy seeing my children excel in sports such as karate, baseball, basketball and soccer. In fact, on the weekend you can find me in the stands cheering them on as their number one fan. I also love crafting and making home decor.

Jessica Zarate
Account Executive

I have been in this industry for the past 5 years and worked with Allstate 4 out of those 5 years. I have obtained a 2-15, 2-20, and 4-40 license. I love the impact I make on my customers’ lives. Everything I provide for them will affect them for the rest of their lives which makes my role that much more important. I enjoy how close it brings me to the community and also creates a warm environment.

I grew up in Chicago, IL. In my free time, you can find me at home watching movies. My favorite thing to do every weekend is trying a new place to eat. I enjoy books, food, and travel. Many people don’t know that I have a great interest in enhanced supercharged vehicles.

I am an active hair donor for Wigs for kids, St Baldricks, retirement homes, animal shelters, and the NICU.

Michelle Robinson
Senior Account Executive

I began working in insurance in 1993 as a customer service representative. I enjoy helping people understand their coverages and how they impact them and others in a claim situation. I love finding ways for them to save money without removing valuable coverage.

I grew up in a small community in Green Cove Springs FL where everyone knows each other. I enjoy spending time with my family fishing, boating and going to the beach. I love being on the boat or at the beach and hanging out in my back yard with my dogs.

Kenndrick Brown
Account Executive

I grew up in Lubbock, Texas. I moved to Jacksonville from Virginia in 2018, after finishing my military contract. After attaining my bachelor’s degree from the University of North Florida, I left an IT position at JEA to pursue a career in insurance at the beginning of 2022. I thoroughly enjoy helping people and providing a legitimate service by educating our clients and ensuring that they are properly protecting themselves and their families.

I am an absolute nerd! I love reading comic books and fantasy novels, as well as collecting art and records. It’s been quite a while, but I enjoy drawing, painting, and calligraphy. When I’m not at work, you might find me running around with my dog, in a book store, or on the hunt for some delicious food!

I grew up here in Orange Park, FL. I have an associate’s degree from FSCJ with a concentration in social work. I began working in insurance in early 2021 when I started with the Roderick Crabbe agency. I enjoy building relationships with customers and being someone they can trust to ensure that they are properly protected. My interests include psychology, astrology, yoga, photography, fashion, and all things creative. On the weekends you can find me immersed in a project, enjoying live music, or taking a mini-trip somewhere outdoors with my daughter.
