Elizann Arizmendi is the Personal Lines Marketing Manager for Advocate Brokerage.  Elizann joined Advocate bringing with her 16 years of insurance experience.

Elizann began her career in the insurance industry at a young age working for her family at a small store front agency.  When asked about her work in the insurance industry, Elizann jokes “I didn’t find insurance, insurance found me.”  She left the comfort of the family business in order to learn more about the industry spending time at the NIA group, the Marsh & McLennan Agency and most recently Brown & Brown.

She enjoys working with customers, getting to know them, and developing comprehensive insurance programs that encompasses all of their risk management needs.  Her personal philosophy on insurance, “to make insurance easy for the customer” fits very well with the Advocate Brokerage values and was a key reason Rosalyn Binday founded the company back in 1969.  Rosalyn felt that the “buying insurance experience” could be more positive and established the company with a focus on providing the best advice and coverage possible.

A resident of New Rochelle, she still feels it is important to give back to the community in which she was born and raised.  Elizann devotes her free time teaching Spanish Salsa dancing for a Bronx based non-profit agency that works to keep youth in the Bronx off the streets.
