SJ Markham & Son, Inc. is happy to announce we have a new member at the office. Dorothy Markham joined the team over the summer and we are excited to have her on board!
From Lunenburg, MA, Dottie has two children and has been happily married to Ed Markham, one of Bob Markham's sons, for over thirty years. She recently became a licensed insurance agent.
Dottie wants customers to know that we are committed to finding the best coverage for all of their insurance needs while providing a personal touch. She also wants everyone to know that our customer service cannot be beat and that all you have to do is stop in or call us if you have questions or concerns. A typical day for Dottie is spent meeting with representatives from different companies, with prospective clients, and working on advertising, but no two days are the same. One part that remains constant is trying to get to know all of the Markham clients that walk through the door.
Previously, Dottie spent over thirty years teaching elementary education in Ayer, MA. She has also taught English as a Second Language to adults and Adult Basic Education for Mount Wachusett Community College. Dottie is without a doubt a people person and loves helping others.
It makes sense that, when asked what she enjoys most about her job, Dottie answered that it's meeting customers, both new and old. "Since we have been in business for almost 100 years, many of our customers are second and third generations. Many of them have stories to tell, and I enjoy sitting with them and listening to their experiences with our company."
When not working, Dottie is an avid reader and particularly enjoys mystery novels. She loves gardening and riding with her husband on his Harley all over the US and Canada. She also makes time to travel to visit her two daughters.
We encourage you to stop by our office sometime soon to meet Dottie. Even if you don't need anything from us, please feel free to grab some candy and say hello!
