Hurshbir Shahi, Agent

Hurshbir grew up on a family farm and worked namely with perennial crops: peaches, prunes, walnuts, and almonds.  After graduating from the University of California, Davis with a degree in environmental toxicology, she sought a Master of Science in Biology with an emphasis in conservation management. Her thesis work was published in the peer reviewed journal, American Journal of Botany (American Journal of Botany 99(8): 1323–1334. 2012).  Previous work experiences include registering pesticides with the Department of Pesticide Regulation to control pests, working on State incentive programs to clean up air emissions such as Proposition 1B Goods Movement Emission Reduction program, the Carl Moyer Program, and she has worked on the low carbon fuel standard, which encourages the use of low-carbon fuels such as biofuels.

More recently, Hurshbir decided to return to the farming as a crop insurance agent (#0H67517). She has a history of surpassing customer and employer expectations because of her depth of knowledge that ranges from detailed statistical analysis to the practical implementation working in the field. Hurshbir is able to leverage her past work experience in government to provide insights to the how the Federal crop insurance incentive program is structured and implemented with the basic understanding of running a farm.  She looks forward to representing you for all your crop insurance needs.
