Bambi Lyberger

Customer Service Representative

I have been in the insurance business for over 30 years. I enjoy developing a personal relationship with our clients that is based on trust and expertise. I was born and raised in Severna Park. Currently, I reside in Arnold with my significant other.

I have been racing corvettes for 30 years. I hold many records and still to this day can take apart and put back together with a car which makes for very interesting conversation. My hobbies, other than racing, include shopping, gardening, and shooting pool.
