Employee Profiles

DeeDee Byrne (Underwriting Manager)

    When not at work, I am normally found wrangling my young twin girls, playing soccer mom, tennis mom or supervising homework. My ‘me time’ is spent running. My favorite is training for half-marathon races. I am not sure I have the guts to do a whole one, but it is on my bucket list. My husband and I have lots of friends and we love to travel.
    I received my BS from University of North Texas and I have been working in insurance ever since. My first job was with a mono-line workers’ comp insurance carrier. I then came to work for TopTanx underwriting underground storage tanks. Initially in Texas and New Mexico, and now in all states. Believe it or not I actually enjoy storage tanks and the people that I work with. I guess that is why I have been here for over 15 years.


Nancy Payne (Underwriter)

    After earning my degree from the University of Texas at Arlington, I worked as a commercial underwriter for ten years before changing careers to spend more time with my two boys. Now that they are grown, I am excited to be a part of the team of underwriters at TOMIC. Whether processing renewals or reviewing applications for new business, I enjoy all aspects of underwriting and finding ways to provide coverage for insureds.
    When I'm not at work I enjoy making homemade jelly from the wild grapes that grow in the woods behind my house and spending time with my husband and our sons.


Shannon Christian (Underwriter)

    While I never expected to be in the insurance business, I have been an integral team member since 2011. As a part time underwriter, I assist others in data entry, policy issuance, endorsements and many other necessary functions to make the office flow smoothly. I earned my BA in Liberal Arts- Interdisciplinary Studies from the University of Texas at Arlington.
    In my spare time, I find myself in the garden or lounging by the pool. I enjoy planning long weekends with my fiancé while he travels for business. We frequent great cities such as; New York, Las Vegas, Fort Lauderdale and San Diego. My "baby" is my 12 year old Pomeranian, Foxy. I love taking her for walks around my 16 acres and snuggling on the couch watching our favorite television shows.
