Jami graduated with a BA from the University of South Florida and went directly on to Nova Southeastern University’s Shepard Broad College of Law in Fort Lauderdale. She made the decision at the end of her first year that a career in Law was not the path she wished to pursue and came back to Tampa with a different goal in mind.
Throughout college she worked part-time in an Allstate Agency and liked the Insurance Industry but decided that becoming an Independent Agent would provide more freedom for her and her future clients. After working in an Independent Agency for nearly 2 years to gain experience, in 2008 Jami started Swafford Insurance Group.
Jami was born in Colorado but has lived in Florida since she was nine. She is married, has two children and a pet tortoise named Mr. Boots. In her spare time she enjoys photography, boating, scuba diving, and restoring furniture.
