Linzy Frank with husband

Linzy Frank

Principal Agent

Hi! I grew up in Alaska, where I spent many years as a gymnast before moving south to attend college at the University of Washington. I got my first job in the insurance industry in 2011, and although I had no idea what to expect going in, I knew from the very first day that it was the perfect career choice for me. Today, I am the primary agent for Sitka Insurance, as well as an active member of NorthStar Toastmasters and the Junior League of Syracuse. When I’m not in the office, you can often find me golfing or playing volleyball.

I earned my Bachelors in Communication Studies from Oneonta and shortly after moved to D.C. where I managed a restaurant near the White House and bartended at one of the cities nightclubs. From D.C., I moved down to Cocoa Beach, FL with my brother and sister in law (Linzy!).

Recently, We welcomed our first child, Isabella, in October 2021.
