Along with managing his own successful firm, Jed was elected Manheim Township Commissioner in 1996 and held that office until 2000. Jed joined Ritter Insurance Marketing in 2005 on a part-time basis.

Joining the firm in October, 2016, Sherry added over thirty years' experience to our team. Though new to Karpinski & Associates at that time, she brought with her a varied background which includes insurance, financial planning, and healthcare administration.
Born and raised in Lancaster County, Sherry began her career in the industry in 1983 and earned her insurance licenses in 1985. Sherry essentially "grew up" in the business, working part time through high school and college for two local agencies. Graduating with a degree in business administration from Central Penn College in 1985, she joined the industry full-time. After spending more than twenty years growing her family's insurance agency, Sherry branched out to work with both MetLife and United Planners' Financial Services.
Sherry and her family live in Strasburg, PA, and enjoy playing an active role in the community. Her greatest passion is family, and Sherry can typically be found along the sidelines at baseball and basketball games cheering on her son and his teammates. She is also an active volunteer with several non-profit organizations that serve those navigating Alzheimer's, dementia, and hospice care.
