Linda Smith


Draxler-Insurance-Agency-Sedona-Cottonwood-Arizona-AZ-Linda-2Linda is originally from a small town in New York but grew up in Pittsburg, PA before moving to Michigan where she spent most of her adult life. A job opportunity brought her to Flagstaff, AZ in 2004 where she lived until recently joining the Draxler Insurance team and relocating to Cottonwood. She has a wonderful daughter who just gave birth to her first son and Linda is really enjoying being a grandmother. Linda’s hobbies get her outdoors; hiking, boating and cross country skiing. Her passion for travel has led her to many interesting and exciting places around the world including Egypt, Ireland, Scotland, England, the Cayman Islands, Jamaica, Mexico, Hawaii and most recently to Peru! France is next up on her travel bucket list. She loves Arizona for its sunshine, blue skies and gorgeous landscapes. Linda is excited for the mild winters in Cottonwood and looks forward no longer needing a snow shovel.

Linda first entered the insurance industry in 1974 as a receptionist for an agency in Grand Rapids, MI where she quickly advanced into personal lines customer service. She left the agency to stay at home after the birth of her daughter before getting back in the insurance business as a claims manager for a large agency in Troy, MI, where she spent the next 6 years. Linda then advanced to a position in commercial lines service in Troy before her next move brought her out West where she fell in love with Arizona and began work at an agency in Flagstaff. Linda recently joined the team in our Cottonwood office and she is excited to be an integral part of Draxler Insurance.
