Standifer Insurance Group

Jessup Standifer
Agency Owner

I’ve been with Standifer Insurance Group since 2000 and have worn many hats in the company. My tenure and experience has allowed me to not only understand the ins-and-outs of insurance, but also to service hundreds of families regarding their protection needs. I can help you protect the things that are important – your family, home, car, boat and more.

As a small business owner, I understand the importance of building a solid foundation for the future and developing long-lasting customer relationships. That’s why I’m committed to offering you the same level of service I’d expect from my own business dealings. When you leave my office, I hope you’ll feel confident, informed, assured and satisfied in your choices. The way you should feel.

Myrna Picogna
Director of Operations

Hello, My name is Myrna, I have been with The Standifer Insurance Group since 2011. I feel like I have been in the insurance world my entire life; because my father and brothers have all sold insurance at one time or another, so it was just a natural transition into my second career, once my 2 children graduated from High School. Even though I wear many hats here at the agency which I truly enjoy, one of my main goals stays the same: to help our customers make sure their insurance needs are met and they are completely satisfied with our services. I have 3 standard poodles: Abby, Bear, and Jackie – who I say are my, “4 legged children that don’t talk back” and their little side kick, Smudge our orange rescue cat. My favorite vacation place is anywhere at the beach and my dream is to travel to Thailand and Italy, hopefully within the next 5 years. If at any time you are not completely satisfied with our agency, please contact me directly so I can help you get the situation taken care of.

Customer Service Representative & Licensed Sales Agent

I am a father of 2 and a grandfather of 4. I have been in the Insurance field for at least 10 yrs. 7 of those were in management. I felt that joining the Standifer Group was a good decision because they are established in the community and I saw how they cared for their clients as if they are family. When something unexpected happens in life it’s good that someone is just a phone call away who cares.

 

When I’m not at work or playing with grandkids, my wife and I have our own ministry. We have been in ministry for at least 17 years helping others. This last year we started our own here locally. We do speaking and personal counseling.

 

Theresa Boyd
Life and Health Agent
Email 

Hello!  My name is Theresa Boyd. I have been with the Standifer Insurance Group for several months and it has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.  I recently acquired my Life & Health license and am currently studying for my Property and Casualty license.  I had been in accounting for many years and never thought that I would be in the insurance business but God had a different plan for my life and insurance is now my passion. 

 

On November 22, 2016, I lost my husband of 33 years.  He was my best friend and the love of my life.  He had the foresight to purchase insurance when he was 18 years old so he is still taking care of me even though he is not here with me.  This is why insurance is my passion - because it makes our lives more sustainable in the event that something does happen. 

 

I understand that life insurance isn't anyone's favorite thing to discuss but it is our responsibility to make sure that our loved ones are taken care of, that they can continue to stay in their homes and have the things they need long after we are gone.

 

Give me a call and let me share my passion with you!

I have a wife, a baby girl, and two little doggies who keep my plate pretty full these days and I would not have it any other way. We enjoy going out to eat, trips to the movies, hiking in the woods, as well as SEC football. I am not too bad in the kitchen either!  

 

 

Even as a young parent I am keenly aware of the need to protect my family and the life we are building. You never know what is going to happen when you leave the house. Give me a call and I can do the same for you.

I've recently joined the Standifer Insurance team, and am excited to be a part of such a great team and help serve our community.

Geneva Schillaci
Commercial Account Manager

Hello, my name is Geneva Schillaci and I have been with the Standifer Insurance Group since August of 2018.  I have spent my entire professional career in the insurance industry.  My expertise lies in commercial property and casualty insurance with a concentration in professional and environmental liability.  I was an assistant underwriter at a wholesale insurance brokerage company for 16 years.  Whether dealing with customers or underwriters, the most important thing to me is developing lasting relationships and always providing excellent customer service every step of the way. 

 

I live in Hoover with my husband, my youngest son and our dog Bear.   I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.   I enjoy gathering with my family here in Birmingham for Alabama football parties.  Of course, that is when we are not at a UAB game or traveling to Auburn to tailgate with my brother-in-law and sister-in-law.  My middle son is a high school football coach in Georgia, so our fall weekends are covered up with one kind of football-related activity or another. 

I look forward to working with the wonderful people at the Standifer Insurance Group and developing long-standing relationships with our customers.  Please call me anytime with your insurance related questions or needs, I will be glad to help you.
