Angela Burchfield

Personal Lines Managing Agent
Direct: (865) 444-4142

As we continue to expand our services, Angela will be your direct source for quoting property and casualty insurance. She joined our team in the spring of 2018 to manage the personal lines (home, auto, etc) of insurance coverage. Angela brings eight years of experience in direct insurance customer relations. She sort of “fell into it” after gaining her finance degree and then just fell in love with helping people. The first time you talk to her you will no doubt hear the excitement in her voice conveying her eagerness to assist you. This is part of The Griffin Way. We love what we do and do it with passion every day!
When Angela isn’t shopping for you she loves to be outdoors and you will often find her hanging out at her pool with her son or refinishing furniture which is a hobby she loves so much she created a side business.
