Part of our brand here at Sidle Insurance is that we love to get to know the people we insure. We care about more than just premiums and coverages - because while those things are important, even more important are the folks that we seek to financially protect. With this in mind, we decided to start a new series on our blog to give our clients a chance to get to know us!
So we will be doing some short Q&As with our staff to better introduce to you the dedicated people who are servicing your insurance. Our first chat was with personal lines CSR, Rebecca Van Skiver.
