From Flora to Policies: Tina's Unique Journey
Before venturing into the insurance realm, Tina shares that her most interesting prior work was in a flower shop, creating beautiful arrangements and caring for live plants. Reflecting on this experience, Tina shares, "It was fun learning about the different live plants and discovering the art of arranging boutiques."
However, it was a close friend who introduced Tina to the insurance industry. Starting as a file clerk, she gradually climbed the professional ladder, eventually obtaining her Insurance License. Now, with two decades of experience under her belt, Tina has become an invaluable asset to the Loman-Ray team.

Despite the challenges, Tina and her team successfully navigated through, showcasing her dedication and leadership skills.
Beyond the Office: Tina's Personal Life and Hobbies
Outside of the office, Tina is an active participant in her grandchildren's lives, attending baseball games, dance recitals, and Taekwondo performances. Family time is of utmost importance to her, and she finds joy in gardening as a hobby.
