Brandi Griffee works with Summers Insurance and they have been a member for a little over six months. Prior to Summers Insurance, Brandi was with Liberty Mutual for fourteen years. She loves her job at Summers because she can still do what she loves, but she gets to be in more control of her schedule. Brandi is married to Jarrett Griffee and they have three children: Brice 17, Kendall 16, and Isla 8.
Brandi went to Penn High School and graduated in 1996. She played on the girl’s golf team and her team won state her junior year, while her senior year, she placed 5th out of the entire state. Brandi went on to play her freshman year of college at IU Bloomington and then transferred to IUSB her sophomore year where she earned her degree in secondary education with a focus on general science and physics. After one year of teaching freshman biology and earth space, Brandi decided to be a stay at home mom while her kids were still young.
When asked about her favorite part of the insurance industry, Brandi said, “I like being able to educate people on what they need to make sure they have the proper coverage/protection”. She also said that building and maintaining relationships is key and many of those are relationships she has created for life. Brandi also said her favorite thing about being involved with the BAEC is all about relationships as well. She has learned to branch out more and network as she has a shy side and the association functions and committees have forced her out of her comfort zone.
Brandi is a member of the Entertainment Committee, The Parade of Homes Committee, and she is the new chairperson for the Golf Committee in 2019! In fact, Brandi had her house built in 2007 and it was in the Parade of Homes! Kendall, Brandi’s daughter is heavily involved in volleyball, so Brandi is constantly traveling the region with her daughter for games, tournaments, etc. She is also a member of the South Bend/Mishawaka Realtors Association and the Premier Women’s Network. On the rare occasion that there is spare time, Brandi enjoys hanging with her best friend of thirty-five years, Amanda.
Brandi said, “I really value the people I’ve met through the BAEC. Everyone is down to earth and I love what the association stands for”. Thank you, Brandi! We value your participation in the BAEC and look forward to working with you for many years to come.
