I have been in the insurance industry since 1993. My first insurance related job was with a large insurance company, so I’m familiar with how things work on the company side – and I think that’s been beneficial in helping me advocate for our clients.

I am licensed in property/casualty and life/health and am also a licensed claims adjuster. I started The Sanford Group in 2001 and have been tremendously blessed to have worked with some truly outstanding people like Louise, Sarah, and Tiffany.

I am honored by the trust our long-time clients place in us, and I am very grateful for each of them.

I am a former Marine Corps Officer, and my son is currently an active duty Marine stationed in California. My daughter is a former college athlete and has been a nurse at Northside Cherokee for 2 years. I am very proud of them both. I was married to their mother – the love of my life – for 27 years before we lost her to a 3-year cancer battle in 2019. I love spending time with my kids, and I am also a high school cross country coach for a local private high school, which I enjoy very much.

Favorite season: football weather on a perfect autumn day. GO DAWGS! (proud UGA alumni, BBA Risk Management/Insurance 1988).

Favorite movie/book: Papillion – an early 70s McQueen/Hoffman classic. I loved reading Lonesome Dove for fun, and treasure anything by C.S. Lewis.

Favorite vacation spot: so far, it has been the Virgin Islands. Just beautiful and so relaxing

I have been in the insurance industry since 1989. My first insurance agency job was in South Florida where I lived and worked until moving to Georgia in 2003. I have both my property & casualty, and life & health licenses. I enjoy furthering my education on all things insurance to better help my clients. It has been my pleasure to work at The Sanford Group since 2008. The clients are wonderful, and I truly enjoy helping people find the right policy for their needs.

My greatest love is my family. I have three beautiful children and one grandchild so far. We enjoy traveling to visit our family out of state, from South Florida all the way up to Western Pennsylvania. We try to do a little something on each trip. Some of my favorites were taking a horse and buggy tour of Philadelphia, spending the day at Disney World or Hershey Park, visiting the board walk in Atlantic City and eating hoagies from White House subs, or just sitting by the beach with my toes in the sand watching my grandson build sandcastles.

My favorite way to start the day is with a cup of coffee and some light reading.

Favorite season: I love when the flowers bloom in the spring and when the pumpkin farms open in the fall.

Favorite movie or book: I love most of the Disney movies and my favorite books are whatever I am reading now.

Favorite vacation spot: Any place I can sit in the sun and see the water.

I have been in the insurance industry since 1985 - representing both Direct Writers as well as working as an Independent Agent. Most recently – I spent 7 years with an Independent Agency in Canton, GA. I enjoy working one on one with clients and helping them to protect their assets and their future.

I was born in California, lived in Pennsylvania – but have lived in Georgia – since 1976. I live in Jasper, GA with my daughter who graduated high school in 2019 and works in the restaurant industry. Her free time is often spent horseback riding or at the beach. I have a son who lives in Milwaukee, WI and manages a grocery food chain. His free time is often spent playing in a band with his longtime friends.

I enjoy the outdoors especially during the Spring and Fall and spend a lot of time gardening and walking. My favorite place to go is the mountains but I do love a beach trip - once in a while! I like to cook – especially during the holidays and giving back to the community. You can also find me reading a book or watching a movie.

Hello! My name is Sarah. I have been in the Insurance industry since 2009. I came to work for The Sanford Group in 2018. I have worked in captive agencies as well as independent. I absolutely love working as an Independent Agent, as it gives me the opportunity to provide multiple options for all my clients, and the ability to service the unique ones as well. Here at the Sanford Group, we strive to excel in our customer service, we try to help our clients in every way possible, by protecting their assets and their families. We are always hoping for the best, and helping you plan for the worst.

 

In my downtime when I am not at the office... I am a blessed mom, of 2 beautiful little girls. Jocelynn & Paisley. I love spending time with my family! I love spending time outside & enjoying nature. One of our favorite things to do is camp, spending time around the bonfire with friends, riding dirt bikes & 4wheelers, canoeing, boating, and swimming in rivers. I love going on adventures! Road trips and traveling and sharing those experiences with people that I love. I have a huge love for music and art. I also love to paint and get creative and bring life to things.

I am a very free-spirited person, with an open mind, and always try to seek the best possible outcome in every situation.

 

I enjoy all seasons, except winter, unless it involves winter sports. And I can never decide if I would rather spend my time in the mountains or the beach when I get time for a family vacation. I want to raise my girls to be fiercely independent and to work hard for the things they want in life, and always be kind.
