L-Tanya Mabrie, Senior vice president, producer/broker, USG Insurance Services
USG Insurance Services
Specialty: California Quake
L-Tanya Mabrie started her insurance career working in the mailroom at a small insurance agency. She was soon offered a trainee position at another agency, where she was first introduced to production. In the 30-plus years since, Mabrie has learned to enjoy and excel at the challenge of going after hard-to-place risks and accounts other brokers would turn down.
After learning about the difficulties of placing earthquake coverage, Mabrie made it her prime focus, learning all she could about how plates shift and how construction can influence quake accounts. She says her major challenges have been learning the specifics of the markets and the different ways to structure an account for a successful placement.
