Grace First Insurance Agency is the fulfillment of a long-held dream for President and CEO Connie Bauman. Connie was born and raised in Illinois. Having had enough of snow and anxious for adventure, she moved to Huntington Beach, CA the day after she graduated from high school and has never left Orange County.
With a strong desire to help and serve others, Connie became a licensed Property & Casualty Insurance agent in 1999. She then took the amazing opportunity to purchase the agency where she had worked for 18 years and changed the name to Grace First Insurance Agency. The name is a reflection of her Christian faith and the company’s highest priority — to help others. As President of Grace First Insurance Agency, Connie strives to assist her clients with their insurance needs, to educate them about insurance, and to save them money! She enjoys owning her own business and being a member of the Fountain Valley Chamber of Commerce.
Outside of the office, Connie is known as Betty Crocker Mama. She was introduced to her husband, Greg, by a friend during a cookie-baking session. Connie is still baking cookies today. At Christmas time, she bakes over 2,000 in one weekend! She and Greg went dirt bike riding on their honeymoon and have been married for over 30 years. Connie and Greg are active members of Grace Lutheran Church, Yorba Linda and of their Orange County community. She loves dogs, and her golden retriever is always happy to see her walk through the door and offer a walk! She welcomes visits from her clients. Come in anytime for a hug, a cookie and a smile!
