Meet Our Team

Michael Bailey

Personal Financial Representative – Agency Owner

I joined the Russ George Agency in 2014. Prior to joining the team I worked with the company’s regional Marketing team on customer experience and national sponsorship programs.

I moved to Arizona from Illinois in 2001. After graduating High School I attended Arizona State University and graduated with a B.S. in 2010 and a M.S. in Management in 2013.

The thing that excites me the most about our business is the ability to positively impact our community by advising our clients on ways to protect their families, and all they have worked to build, from the risks of everyday life.

I enjoy sports, so whether it is attending ASU football games, Cactus League spring training, or the Waste Management Phoenix Open, Arizona is full of great opportunities for the sports fan to experience.

When I am not working I like to stay active, spend time with friends and family, and take time to appreciate all of the great entertainment the valley has to offer.

One new interest I have started to pursue is the guitar. 

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is an organization that I support.

Aprol Barron

Agency Manager

I have been in the insurance industry for over 23 years, where I first started as a file clerk when I was 16. I was born and raised in Arizona, graduating from Gilbert High School and attending college at Mesa Community College.

I love helping people by teaching them about protecting themselves and their families. When out of the office, I enjoy going on rides in our RZR and racing dirt track. As a matter of fact, a lot of people don’t know that I have raced in various forms since I was 8 years old! What I really enjoy, though, is riding in the sand dunes, spending time with my husband and my twin stepsons.

I am very passionate about animals and I have two rescue dogs. I am also involved with domestic violence issues, as well.

Jody Corona

Customer Service Manager

I am the go-to customer service person here in the office. With over 10 years of experience, there is no problem too big or too small to tackle for my customers. I feel that the most exciting part of my job is that I am able to help people in their time of need.

I grew up in Pinetop, Arizona where I went to Blue Ridge High School. I enjoy spending time with my family, relaxing by the pool, camping & shopping. My guilty pleasure is baking & cooking. My interests are being outdoors, sitting poolside & most recently, kickboxing.

Viani Y. Castaneda

Licensed Sales Producer

I was born in Mexico but grew up in Phoenix, AZ. I have worked in the insurance industry for over 12 years and I love to serve our existing customers, as well as new ones, with all their insurance needs. Having the opportunity to help our customers insure their most important assets, with all the great products we have to offer, and in the process give them peace of mind is very rewarding.

I have two very bright and beautiful daughters that are my world.  When not at work, I love to bake and take small family trips to explore our beautiful state. We love to camp out and enjoy Mother Nature. Recently, I started to create baked edible arrangements to give out to loved ones for special occasions. I really enjoy drawing and painting whenever I have the spare time.

I am very much involved in my local church and with an organization that helps out local Hispanic churches with resources to better help their communities, called Necesitamos a Jesus.

Mollie Schneider

I have been in this agency for the past two years and have found my home here. I love helping out our customers, both existing and new, with any of their needs and making sure they are taken care of.

I grew up in the mountains of Graeagle, CA close to Lake Tahoe, where I enjoyed the outdoors as an avid camper, hiker and skier. I attended Portola High School where there were only nine people in my Senior class. I have now been in Arizona for 13 years.

I am also an avid animal lover. I am a volunteer foster with Take Me Home Arizona animal rescue and have 3-3/4 rescue cats (one has three legs lol) and a rescue dog.

When I am not working, I like to spend my time with family and friends, reading good books, and traveling.

Russ George


Our family has worked closely with families and businesses for years to help people with their insurance needs – from homes to auto to boats and more. Our quality, service-oriented agency is not only owned and operated by family, customers tell us we make them feel like family, too.

I take on a proactive working style with customers. I can help identify gaps in your protection and financial needs and assist you with helpful ideas and information along the way. Personally, I offer customers the same as what I’d expect from The Russ George Agency – professional service and solutions that can meet your financial needs.
