What are 3 words people use to describe you? 

Competitive. Funny. Southern!

What gets you excited about life? 

Road trips! I will always be a child at heart, loving new experiences.  It’s a big world out there, and I want to see it all. One of my favorite John Muir quotes is, “Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.” 

What do you love to do outside of work?  

I love camping, hiking, kayaking, biking, skiing (sort of), amateur photography and road trips. I love living in Idaho where every weekend my family is out doing something outdoors. Like John Muir said, “The mountains are calling and I must go”!    

What do you enjoy most about insurance? 

I love that every day is a day to learn something new. Every client is unique and I love interacting with them, getting to know them and finding solutions for them.

How do you define success?  

Setting goals and doing your best to accomplish those goals while learning something new every day. Success is going to bed at night, knowing you’ve been the best “you” that you can be.

What is the best advice you have ever been given?  

Don’t sweat the small stuff!  

Cheryl Walston serves as Account Manager with ISU Cunnington & Associates. As Account Manager, Cheryl focuses on day to day servicing needs, coverage changes, certificates of insurance, claims processing, billing support and general account oversite with an emphasis on Personal Lines coverages.

Cheryl’s career in insurance began in 1983 at a local independent insurance agency in Phoenix, Arizona where she worked as a Personal Lines Account Manager and continued for over 22 years. In 2005 Cheryl accepted an opportunity with AIG’s Western Regional office in San Diego, California providing service to ultra-high net worth clients in AIG’s Personal Lines Issuance department. A native of Mississippi, after seven years in California, Cheryl felt prompted to return to her “small town” roots and began researching an alternative place to raise her family. In 2012, Cheryl and her husband Jim chose to relocate to Idaho. In 2013, Cheryl joined ISU Cunnington where her infectious southern charm accentuates over 35 years of industry experience serving personal lines and small business clients.

Cheryl is very involved in Special Olympics where she actively supports her intellectually disabled stepson. Cheryl resides in Star, Idaho with Jim, and their two stepchildren. Moving to Idaho was a life-changing decision for Cheryl’s family and they have fully embraced life as Idahoans and can be regularly found exploring its lakes, trails, rivers and campsites.
