MHG Spotlight: Sandra Heminger, Broker

Posted September 14 2016

SANDRA HEMINGER 2The bottles are popping! The champagne is flowing! The confetti is falling! MHG is celebrating its 25thanniversary this year, which means it is time to get this party started!

MHG Insurance Brokers has been serving the marine industry, businesses, and groups and individuals around the world since 1991. Reaching this milestone is no small feat, and makes it a perfect time to look back and do some reflecting. What better way to do that than by giving some insight into the history of MHG and its employees?

A lot goes into a business lasting 25 years. Even more goes into a business experiencing success and continuing to grow during that time. While much of it can be attributed to a company’s philosophy, structure, and culture, a business is nothing without the people who execute that philosophy and help create a one of a kind culture. Here at MHG, we are an extremely diverse bunch. Many of us are from various countries, involved in several community organizations, and from different career backgrounds. It takes a special group of people to make insurance fun, which is why you should get to know us!

So, let’s get to know Sandra Heminger!

Before MHG

Prior to working for MHG, Sandra was the Personal Lines Manager for Bateman, Gordon and Sands, and prior to that was the Agency Operation Manager for People’s Trust. Her prior work experience in commercial and personal lines sales and underwriting made her a top candidate for MHG.

Sandra’s MHG Timeline

Sandra started at MHG in June of 2015 as an Account Executive in the Property and Casualty Division, and did not take long to become a key member of the MHG team. In September she was promoted to Broker which is her current title. When asked about her favorite part of the job, her response was, “My favorite part of my job is showing people different ways to manage their business’s risk exposures.  I like helping them find solutions and helping them solve problems.”

Community Involvement

Sandra has always been involved in rescuing animals, and has rescued three Thoroughbred horses this year alone. She is very dedicated to bringing awareness to the abuse of animals, especially in the South Florida area. She also volunteers with Abandoned Dogs Project in the Redlands which helps to feed and rescue dogs that are dumped there by their owners. She and her husband also volunteer as foster parents for A Way For A Stray, which is a local rescue that takes on some of the most difficult dogs that need medical and behavioral rehab. Lastly, Sandra is also a big supporter of HiCaliber Horse Rescue, who save horse from being shipped to slaughter in Mexico.

Personal Interests

Outside of work, Sandra mainly spends time with her family and their seven horses. She has been rescuing horses with her sister since they were kids. She and her husband also enjoy boating and fishing.
