A Bit About Us

We offer family-style service and selection for ALL of your insurance needs.  We carefully select the companies we work with in order to provide you with the best level of service, price and protection. A huge advantage of using an independent insurance agency is we do the comparison shopping for you and we work for you!  We will always do our best to satisfy your needs and continuously have your best interest in mind.  We can help you save even more with "Early Quoting Discounts" if you call us before your current policy expires!  Did you know that you don't have to wait to start putting money back in your pocket?  In most cases, you will get a refund of any unused premium if you switch your insurance before your renewal date!

Edward T Rosenwinkel — Agent/Owner Email
My name is Edward T. Rosenwinkel and my beautiful wife Tami and I have four great teenagers between us - two boys (Jake and Andrew), and two girls (Tara and Alyssa). We were married in May of 2014 and live in Schererville, Indiana. Our days are full of the kid's activities which include Lake Central Dance, boy scouts, basketball, baseball, soccer and Lake Central Marching Band. Professionally, I have 20+ years of experience selling insurance and managing our office. I am licensed in Indiana and Illinois for property, casualty, life and health insurance. I grew up in Lake County Indiana in Griffith and Crown Point. I went to Lake Central High School and after graduating I attended Indiana University, (Class of 1994 - GO HOOSIERS!!!). While at IU, I was a member of Alpha Sigma Phi Fraternity. Within the community, I volunteer with my son's Boy Scout troop, have coached youth baseball and flag football for the Town of Schererville, and coach Lake Central Youth Basketball. I play in an adult baseball league with the Northwest Indiana NABA league and I am a longtime member of Lake County Fish and Game Association. I am an avid fisherman, I love driving my 1968 Mustang, hiking, camping, shooting, skiing and hanging out with friends and family. You'll always be part of the family here!
Tami J Rosenwinkel — Agent/Owner Email
Hi! I'm Tami Rosenwinkel and I have an interesting background. I grew up in Dolton, IL and moved to the Hoosier State in 1995. After graduating from Thornton Township High School in Harvey, IL, I started working downtown at First Options of Chicago in the Human Resources/Payroll department. I left that position after ten years to dedicate myself to starting a family and took the position of "Domestic Engineer" (long hours, no pay but excellent benefits…LOL). In 2010 I decided to get back into the workforce and worked for a major insurance company. I worked for the next three plus years as a staff member and temporary agent licensed in property, casualty, life and health insurance. From there I went to work for Riverdale Body Shop as the office manager. My insurance background was priceless on the other side of the claims process and I was able to guide and help customers thru the process in many ways. Now, I'm here to join my husband as we carry on the Rosenwinkel family legacy as an agent and part owner of Rosenwinkel Insurance, LLC. I love to drag race my 1969 Hurst/Olds. I love to fish and also belong to the Lake County Fish and Game Association. I enjoy hiking, camping, hunting, shooting and skiing. I am a Route 66 buff and travel the "old road" often. I belong to the Route 66 Association of Illinois and do preservation work along the Mother Road as much as I can. I have hosted and helped organize car shows and meets for the Hurst/Olds Club of America and am also a member of the Oldsmobile Club of America. In the community I have coached T-ball, youth soccer and basketball. I taught Faith Formation at St. Michael's Church for several years where I was also involved in the Mom and Tots Group. I volunteer at my children's schools as time allows and organized the Plum Creek 4th of July parade for over 10 years. We look forward to meeting you and taking care of you and your family!
Helen Burgess — Senior Staff Member Email
Hello! My name is Helen Burgess and I recently joined the Rosenwinkel Insurance team. In 2007, I emigrated from the United Kingdom to be with my husband, Greg. We live in Schererville, Indiana with our daughter Natasha. My prior professional history is in the healthcare service. Specifically for 22 years I worked in the medical equipment repair field in the UK, where I specialized in the maintenance of radiation therapy machines for the treatment of cancer. After moving to the USA, I enjoyed 10 years as a "Stay At Home Mom" and have been involved with volunteering in school activities such as sports day, fun fairs, book sales and popcorn days. I was President of the band boosters, coached a local Under 10 soccer team, tackled a few DIY projects at home and continue to look after our garden. As a hobby in my younger days, I dabbled in a few equestrian sports, mostly for leisure riding in the English countryside and sometimes competing in eventing and show jumping events that took place local to where I lived on the outskirts of London. Now that I have joined the workforce again, I have the best employers in Tami and Ed, they are very welcoming and dedicated to the provision of a service that goes above and beyond. I am enjoying the wide and varied experience that comes with the independent insurance service, meeting interesting people and servicing their insurance needs here at Rosenwinkel Insurance and find it very rewarding. I am quickly learning the subtle nuances of searching out the "right fit" for a policy tailored to the individual requirements of each customer. I look forward to meeting you and helping you find that tailored fit for you and your family!
Tina Vuollet — Staff Member Email
My name is Tina Vuollet and I joined the Rosenwinkel team in August of 2017. I live in Illinois with my husband, Chris, and our 3 amazing kids Christina, Isabella and Robert. I have been lucky enough to be an “stay at home Mom” for the past 19 years. I went back to school to get my cosmetology and esthetician license and have been able to work from home the last 5 years. I have been heavily involved in my kids’ schools for 13 years running the PTA which involved organizing book fairs, fundraisers, and helping with events the school hosted like family fun nights, literacy nights and field day. I have been a Girl Scout leader for 13 years for my daughters and a Boy Scout leader for 4 years for my son. My children are involved in many activities that I then get involved in. I love spending time doing things with my family. I love to shop, read, paint, watch movies and TV. I have recently taken up a new hobby and I’m learning how to quilt. My husband and I love taking mini vacations to Michigan to sight-see and visiting the winery's. I enjoy driving my convertible Mustang and sight-seeing when the weather is beautiful. I am excited about my future with Ed and Tami and look forward to getting to know you and servicing all your insurance needs.
