Meet LeiLani Sandstrom
Not too long ago, a friend introduced me to LeiLani Sandstrom (thanks Michelle!). I was immediately impressed. She had character, charisma, and a certain fight in her eye I rarely come across. She’d been licensed for a bit and had been working with one of the larger carriers in the US, but was seeking a more personable fit. She liked us and we liked her. And while I’m behind on my writing and welcomed her to The Insurist a bit ago, today I introduce you to LeiLani Sandstrom, AKA Lani.
Lani will be our Insurance Advisor in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties with a focus on the service based industries in those areas. She’s also excited about promoting one of our up and coming brands “The Insured Grandchild.”
I sat down with Lani to learn a few things about her and this is what she shared…
What is your favorite book?
I’m not much of a sit down type of book reader, but I will say my favorite is “When Tomorrow Comes” by Janette Oke.
What is your favorite food?
Probably Cajun. I love food and am not overly picky unless it’s “funky” food.
What keeps you going?
Happiness and enjoying what is given to us drives me in life. Mainly my wonderful husband, kids, my grandson, family and friends. I love experiencing new things and giving others the opportunity to experience new things. Sometimes trivial things can be amazing.
How do you spend your free time?
My hobbies are camping, riding quads, hanging out with family and friends, and painting.
What drives you to be in the insurance business?
I love to help people that can benefit from the services we offer. The insurance business can allow my husband and I to live a debt free life and for that I am grateful. It also gives me the space to live my life with my kids and grandkids and that is a rare opportunity.
Anything else you’d like to share?
I was born in Hawaii and raised in Texas. Been in California since 1995. My husband and I just celebrated our 20th anniversary and renewed our vows in my home state of Hawaii.
