About Jann

Veteran Restaurateur, Celebrity Caterer, Birmingham native, mother of six, and lover of cheese,  Jann Robinson is the agency principal and chief risk/insurance advisor at ASTORIA RMS. Jann began her insurance career as a management intern at Torchmark Corporation’s Liberty National Life Insurance Company. Twenty-five years later, after a memorable experience as Marketing Manager at Farmers Insurance, Jann started the Independent P&C Agency ASTORIA RMS.

These skills are just what the insurance industry demands: solving problems, visualizing, and preparing for both the expected and the unexpected.
