Highlands Ranch is a better place because of Randy E. Johnson’s team. Micki Goodeill gives back to the community through her Chamber work, charitable events and her work with the local insurance agency, Randy E. Johnson Insurance Agency. A licensed team member and Randy E.

Micki has a long history with State Farm, having worked with State Farm in Oregon for fourteen years, before moving to Colorado and joining Randy’s agency two years ago. “In my sixteen years I have developed many treasured friendships from policyholders and their families,” said Micki. “I not only enjoy my work, but I enjoy working in the community and with the Chamber. I love that I am able to connect with local businesses and support my local economic community.” In addition, Micki has been an integral part in Randy E.
