Leon Van Berkum began his insurance career as an exclusive agent but quickly realized a single company could not satisfy the diverse needs of all of his customers. He established Northland Independent Group in 2009 as a full service agency representing individuals, families, and businesses in the Kansas City area. Leon is from Alta, IA and has a Bachelor’s Degree from Iowa State University. He is married with two teenage children. Rebecca Walker joined the agency in 2010 with a background in claims and agency management. Rebecca was born and raised in Joplin, MO and received her education from Rockhurst University in Kansas City. She is married and has four young children.
