Meet Our Team

Tyler Johnson
Principal Agent

I have worked in the insurance industry for 17 years, 15 of those as an Agency Owner for Allstate. I was born and raised in Walnut Creek in an Allstate family and took over the family business after my dad retired as an Allstate agent in 2001.

The most rewarding thing we do is being counted on a trusted advisor to our clients to see them through their insurance and financial needs. I’m a huge sports fan and follow all of our local teams. When I’m not working, I’ll be spending time with my wife and two young kids. After graduating college, a friend and I travelled across the country one summer and attended a baseball game in every major league baseball stadium.

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 a family, customers tell us we make them feel like family too.

We understand customers have a lot of choices when deciding how to protect what matters to them — from the company they work with to picking the right coverage. Our role is to provide information that helps you make the right decisions for your needs. We’ll start by asking questions to gain an understanding of what your coverage needs may be, and we’ll be there along the way to answer any questions you may have. Our goal is to guide you to the coverage that leaves you feeling confident.

Katie Dionne
Office Manager

katiedionne@allstate.com

I’ve worked with Tyler Johnson since 2001 when he took over his father’s business.

I was born in Walnut Creek and grew up in Concord. I have had my insurance license since I was 19 and recently obtained my Life & Health license.

It excites me to be working with families in our community who are just like my own. I’m really passionate about animals. When not working, you can find me with friends or taking long walks with my dogs. I work out regularly and participate every year in the Avon walk for breast cancer.

Johnette Dionne
Licensed Sales Producer

I am licensed in property & casualty insurance and have worked in this office for 20 years. I have lived in the Concord/Walnut Creek area all my life. I am a member of the Contra Costa Blue Star Moms Chapter 20.

I have been working here 20 year, so I have a very long history with our clients and they depend on me. I love helping our new “out of state” clients get settled into Bay Area life. I enjoy taking road trips to visit family & friends.

I love talking about my dogs, a golden retriever and a golden doodle, working on my house and I love spending weekends cooking and trying out new recipes.

I love playing video games. I also attend the Avon Breast Cancer walk every year to support Kathleen’s Krusaders walking in memory of my sister.

I have been working with insurance since 2002. Insurance is such an important item in our financial life and I enjoy making sure people understand what they need.

Jim Galinsky
Personal Financial Representative

jimgalinsky@allstate.com

I have been working in the insurance business since 1997, specializing in the personal finance side of the business. I grew up in a small town on the edge of the Adirondack Mountains in New York State. My undergraduate studies began at Syracuse University and were completed at the University of Houston after a few years of break.

I most enjoy working with individuals and couples to solve their pressing financial need. I really like finding the key to creating a successful outcome for my clients, whether it is in selecting their life insurance, investment portfolio, or other aspect to the financial plan.

I enjoy spending my free time with my long-term life partner Mary Tuchscherer out in the various towns of the east bay enjoying shopping, a casual meal, or a movie. My guilty pleasure is to play poker at one of the local card rooms. My partner Mary created and manages a non-profit called VoiceFlame and I enjoy assisting her with that in any way that I can.
