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.
