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.

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 the captive agencies as well as independent. I absolutely love working as an Independent Agent, I believe it gives me the opportunity to provide multiple options for my clients. Here at the Sanford Group we strive on 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 married and a mom, of 2 beautiful little girls. I love spending time with my family! I love spending time just, being outside, enjoying nature. One of our favorite things to do is go primitive camping, spending time around the bonfire with friends, riding dirt bikes, 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 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.

I have over 10 years of experience with independent insurance agencies and have helped my clients buy policies that suite their individual needs. When I started at my first insurance agency job in 2007, I had no clue what to expect. I am very much a people person and highly motivated by helping people protect their assets. I have been a licensed insurance agent in not only Florida but Mississippi and Georgia as well. I have valued every aspect of the insurance field as a whole and I have a love for helping people where I can. Every client has different needs because every client is different. I try and build a professional relationship with my clients, so they know I am on their side. Simply put, I care about my clients!

Aside from being an insurance agent, I am a wife to an amazing husband of 23 years, a blessed mom of 5 children (all adult children except 1), a grandmother of 3 sweet grandbabies and a fur mom to my 2 precious pups. Our house is very busy to say the least. In my free time I l try to spend as much time as possible with my family. We enjoy camping in all 4 seasons, but I must admit winter and fall are my favorite. We also enjoy fishing, shooting, trail riding and really being outdoors when we can. I enjoy crafting and reading when I can find the time to myself. My husband and I are also huge fans of cruising. We have been on 8 different ships and look forward too many more vacations spent on a ship.

My goal for the future is to be able to retire by the age of 63 or 65 and travel the USA with my husband. I want to be able to enjoy everything retirement has to offer. I want to spoil the grandkids and send them home to their parents. I want to wake up Christmas morning surrounded by my children, grandchildren, and hopefully great grandchildren. After all life is nothing without the love of your family.
