Tatyana Podmankova

Office Representative

My name is Tatyana Podmankova. I was born and raised in Kazakhstan, in a small town where everyone knew each other. After graduating high school, I attended the Moscow State University Of Foreign languages. While there, I studied English and German as my second and third language, receiving my Bachelor’s degree. Because of the nature of my studies, I received a contract to come to The United States to work. Once here, I fell in love with the diversity of this country and I decided this is where I want to live and grow. I started my insurance career with health insurance in 2017, from there I moved to State Farm, a company that has proven to be the strongest insurance company in the industry, in 2018! I am licensed in the State of Florida with a 220 General Lines License and a 215 Life and Health License. What excites me the most about my work is making a difference in peoples’ lives. There is no greater gift than a person’s smile and appreciation. I hope to continue to make a difference in people’s lives and have their interests in mind at all times with the help of State Farm! Please give me the opportunity to help you with your life, auto, or homeowner’s insurance.
