Dave enjoys educating and consulting with clients, as well as providing unparalleled customer service. He is a CPA in the state of Utah and is licensed to sell insurance in Montana, Idaho, Utah and Texas.
When he isn’t working, Dave enjoys traveling, reading, playing racquetball, and watching Dallas Stars Hockey. Go Stars!!! He also loves animals, especially his little basset hound, Lexi (aka “lowrider”).

Ruth James is a licensed independent agent with Insurance Unlimited of Bozeman and specializes in property and casualty insurance. She was raised in North Ogden, Utah and is the youngest of eight children, seven of which are boys. Having seven big brothers taught Ruth much about patience, the art of survival and a love for sports.
Before joining the insurance industry in 2018, Ruth was a Beauty Advisor and Account Coordinator for Estee Lauder Cosmetics. She enjoyed working one on one with her clients and flourished in providing them with the utmost customer service and care. After becoming a mother, Ruth had the opportunity for twelve years to be a piano teacher. Her love of music and of teaching, blended with the most fantastic students, equaled shear happiness!
When Ruth isn’t in the office, she is cooking or baking yummy biz with her daughters (we like lots of butter), playing her piano or accompanying talented singers, hiking in the beautiful mountains and having family movie nights. Ruth loves being a wife and mother and she’s happy that she is able to represent Insurance Unlimited. Having the ability to provide her clients with different options, effectively listening to their needs and concerns and joyfully responding to her client’s requests are aspects that she truly loves about being an agent.
Social Media Coordinator
Melanie Jarnagin joins the team at Insurance Unlimited of Bozeman as the Social Media Coordinator, or “Social Media Queen” as Dave has dubbed her. Although originally from Texas, Melanie and her family have lived in Atlanta, Georgia since 2018. She and her husband, Dax, have three children, as well as their dog, Marshall.
Melanie’s background is in special education, and with that foundation she now advocates for her youngest son, who has Down syndrome. She stepped away from teaching to raise her family but has dabbled in other pursuits along the way, including a cake decorating biz and all the DIY projects she can squeeze in. Her favorite things include hiking with her family, jigsaw puzzles, and true crime podcasts.
Outside of work and family life, Melanie keeps busy handling the social media for her local church community and running a Down syndrome awareness Instagram account. She is excited to channel her social media knowledge towards connecting our Insurance Unlimited family across various platforms.
