I started in the insurance industry in Stockton California in 1988 with State Farm. I continued to work with State Farm when I relocated to Sonoma County in 1990.
When I got married in 1991 I moved to Napa, CA and began working for a local State Farm agent in Napa. This is where I first met Christa Granton. We became fast friends and colleagues. When I had my second child I decided to become a stay at home mother and loved doing so until we moved to Red Bluff in 2002.
I then started a career in restaurants and worked all the way up from server to the General Manager. I loved the restaurant industry and still have a certain warm feeling for it and always will, it is HARD WORK.
Christa and I had always maintained our friendship, so when she offered me the opportunity to come back into the insurance world in June of 2019, I leapt at the chance. And so the rest is proverbial history…
Cicely Rhodin grew up in the East Bay with a love of horses, and it was this love that eventually brought her to the world of insurance. Cicely attended the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, GA and received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Equestrian Studies in 2018.
After moving back home, the job search was on. Cicely knew that she wanted to work in the horse industry but desired an office setting. A barn office manager or show secretary came to mind.
Horses and insurance met in January 2020 when she applied for and accepted a job with Langer Equestrian Group Insurance Solutions (LEGIS) in Burbank, CA. There, she utilized her numerous years of horse experience and dove into the new world of insurance. She worked mainly in the Farm & Liability department.
Cicely was with LEGIS for a year, but the ache for the Bay Area grew as that year went on. She decided to move back home again, but this time to Sonoma County. There is so much more for her to learn and she’s ready to take on the challenge!
