About Baker Insurance Group
Meet Our Team
Theresa Baker is the founder of Baker Insurance Group.
She began her insurance agency career in 1989. After obtaining her degree in History from University of Nevada Reno, she realized that a career in helping with insurance decisions was the best one for her, and not working in a historical society museum.
She believes in constant education. Whether this be in insurance, public speaking, or how the pioneers came from the east to the west. (Ask her about walking in the remaining wagon ruts of the early pioneers in NV or rubbing Basque drawings off aspen trees in the Sierra NV Mountains).
Liberty Elliott is an insurance agent for Baker Insurance Group. She began working for BIG in October 2017, and in the industry the summer of 2014. She isn’t just an agent though, at Baker Insurance Group she also acts as one of the main points of contact between clients, and BIG’s Founder, Theresa Baker. Scheduling appointments, helping with client research, IT support coordination, and perusing ways to streamline BIG’s systems are only a few of the other hats she wears.
Liberty strongly believes in beginning every new relationship with integrity and transparency. She is diligent and thorough in uncovering what factors are driving our client’s decisions and works meticulously to ensure they always find the plan that fits their needs. As her father always told her, “If you aren’t going to do it right the first time, don’t bother doing it at all”.
Outside of work Liberty likes to stay active and can often be found by the river or hiking one of the many scenic trails the PNW has to offer with her loyal sidekick BugBug. Her hobbies include woodworking, mechanics, (anything that resembles a puzzle really), spending time with friends and family, and not last nor least, taking naps!
As an insurance agent at Baker Insurance Group since June 2020, Joni Tomal is the account executive for employer medical plan clients. She obtained her insurance license in 2013 to work with clients at a national firm specializing in employee benefits. Prior to this, she managed client relationships at several leading financial services firms.
Joni grew up in Tacoma and enjoys reading (mostly historical fiction), decorating (a bit of pink in every room), snuggling with her dachshund Lily, and dreaming of her next vacation to Paris.

Theresa Baker is my most trusted insurance agent. I rely on her to direct me on insurance needs because she has proven on many occasions to have my best interest in mind. Theresa asks a few key questions, then makes recommendations based on my answers. She is never pushy or demanding, completely seamless. I recommend her often.

She is adept at the complexities and nuances in the constantly changing healthcare market, particularly with regard to the regulations and requirements of small business. Theresa is professional and thorough in her research and explanations, always ensuring each year at renewal time that our agency’s plan best fits our needs. She is a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her services.

Thank you for the most AMAZING customer service Michelle Larson! If it wasn’t for you, this Health Insurance maze would have me in a twist. I know when I call, you are always there to answer the phone or return my call first thing! Health Insurance is foreign to me, especially with all of the changes, so another HUGE thank you for being ever so patient with me. It’s not often one can call a company and have a real person answer without going through massive teleprompts, let alone have all of your questions answered all with a smile. I really do appreciate everything you have done for my family and I.
