Sandy Whitaker

Commercial Lines Agent

Sandy began her insurance career in 1995 in her husband’s insurance agency in Tomball, TX. In 2008, they sold their agency, moved to Somerville, and began renovating their new home. In 2010, she began working for our agency as a Commercial CSR, and she has brought a wealth of experience to her role ever since. When she is not taking care of our clients’ needs, she is enjoying the peace and quiet of her country home.

Mary Lapaglia

Commercial and Personal Lines Agent

Mary is also a Bryan native and is a proud graduate of Texas A & M University. She started her insurance career 18 years ago in personal lines for a local independent insurance agency. Next, she worked with a direct writing agency but found she missed the options she was used to. As the newest member of our agency, she enjoys the variety of working with both personal lines and commercial lines customers. Mary is also a licensed nurse. She has many interests, but if crocheting were a sport, she’d be in the thick of it!
