Trudy’s first job was working in her father’s insurance agency in northeastern Illinois. She worked at the insurance agency part-time through high school and college, and for several years after college.

She left the insurance agency to work as a teacher in Illinois and then in Mesa, Arizona. She taught elementary grades, and then worked in the Educational Technology Department. She retired from Mesa Public Schools in 2014 and joined the agency full-time in 2015. 

Trudy is a licensed Property & Casualty agent. She heads up the Customer Service Department of the agency. 


For the last 23 years Karen Cornell has been in the role of Customer Service Representative/Agent at Desert View Insurance.  Karen started her career in high school as a legal secretary; which turned into twenty-years of working as a paralegal and office manager at various law firms in the Valley.  

Karen left the field of law to raise a family and took on a variety of positions in her church and in her children’s schools and extra-curricular activities.  Once her children were older and more independent, the transition into the insurance industry was an exciting and challenging opportunity.  

Karen focuses on meeting the service needs of our DVI customers and is proud to work with high-rated carriers such as Auto-Owners.  Outside of the office Karen enjoys hiking, movies, reading, and spending time with her family.


Rob Hall is a new insurance agent; however, his family has been in insurance for virtually his entire life. Desert View Insurance was founded by his grandfather and his first paying job was as a file clerk at the agency. 

After serving over twenty years in military service, Rob has returned to the agency becoming a Licensed Agent tasked with managing the Commercial and Personal Risks of our clients. His heart for serving his community has lead him to extensive volunteer service with many well known Not-for-Profit groups based in the Phoenix area whose missions are to address the basic needs of less fortunate families. 

He has been married to his beautiful wife Kelly since 2009 and together they are raising two young daughters and a son. The Hall family loves to get outdoors hiking and camping and will escape to the ocean every chance they get.
