Tami Sherman, AU, CISR.

I was born and raised in Newton, Iowa. I started at my first insurance agency in 1981, and been in insurance ever since. Eighteen years were spent as a commercial lines underwriter with two major insurance carriers. The last six years, I have been an account manager for business insurance. The best part of my work day is taking care of our customers insurance issues, so that they can concentrate on their business. When I'm not at work, I am generally spending time with friends, reading, or playing Scrabble and Bookworm on my computer.
