Trudy Norton

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 25 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.


Camie worked for the agency as an Administrative Assistant while pursuing her degree at Arizona State University. After graduation, she worked in a couple different fields including Social Services and Grocery Licensing. However, she loved working for the Norton’s and started back at Desert View Insurance in the spring of 2017. Since returning to the agency, she has pursued insurance education and obtained her CISR designation. Camie takes pride in providing quick turnaround on customer requests, and knowing our customers can count on us to service their accounts with accuracy.

Camie’s free time is spent drinking good coffee, cooking new recipes, spending time with friends and family, and reading this month’s book club book.
