Kay Granger: Teacher, Insurance Agent, Congresswoman
Congresswoman Kay Granger of Fort Worth, Texas, never intended to become an insurance agent and never imagined a career in politics. But as often happens, life had its way and she ended up doing both.
A former school teacher, Granger went into the insurance business in order to better provide for her family as a single mother. First a life insurance agent, Granger later opened her own business and expanded into property/casualty and health. Then she went into politics.
Granger has been a member of Congress for 16 years and says the skills she developed in the insurance business have been extremely valuable during her time in public office.
