We’re excited to welcome a new addition to the Mitchell & Mitchell family, although she’s really been in the family all along. Sindy Graham recently joined our team and we cannot wait for you to get to know her and all that she has to offer as an insurance professional. It seems like insurance runs in the family, since Sindy is actually our owner, Gary Mitchell’s sister. With Gary’s daughter, Siri also working at the agency, it is truly a family-owned business.
Sindy started her career at Mitchell & Mitchell about 30 years ago, when her son was in kindergarten, as a way to get out of the house for a few days a week. She began as an office admin since she didn’t have any real experience yet. No one ever really plans on a career in insurance; it just happens! Sindy left the agency in 1992 to explore another opportunity where she learned all lines of the business, got licensed, and recently had the chance to come back to Mitchell & Mitchell, where it all started. After gaining experience and knowledge in the insurance industry, Sindy says the part that excites her most about being an agent is the ability to build a relationship with the client, keep up with their changing needs, and educate them on what they have and why they need it.
When Sindy isn’t assisting clients with their insurance, she spends time working in her yard, baking and cooking, and taking long walks. She also takes care of a feral cat colony whom have chosen her house as their home; at the moment she has about 7 or 8 of them. She feeds them, lets them sleep in her garage, and even takes the new ones to get fixed. Sindy also has a part-time job, what she calls her “fun” job, at Bath & Body Works. She says, “No matter how bad a day I have had, once I walk in there and smell all the good smells, it puts a smile on my face!”
We are very grateful to have Sindy back at Mitchell & Mitchell and we can’t wait to see all the wonderful things she has in store for us. While she has been fortunate enough to have experience in all types of insurance including commercial lines for non-profits, farms, and agriculture, Sindy will be spending most of her time assisting clients with their personal insurance including auto, homeowners, renters, and personal umbrella.
