Kim is a lifelong resident of Saginaw, residing in Thomas Township the last 46 years. She started her insurance career in the family business, VanAuken-Graebner-Mason, Inc. in 1975 and has been a licensed insurance agent ever since. In 1995, Kim, along with her brother, Jay Graebner, and partners Tom and Kerrie Blackney, purchased their family’s agency. At that time, the agency name was changed to Area Independent Underwriters, Inc. and continued the location in Old Town Saginaw. Kim’s family agency is the oldest independent agency in Saginaw, being established in 1856.
On June 1, 2004, Area Independent Underwriters became part of Future Insurance Agency and Kim continues her insurance career there. When not in the office, Kim enjoys her time on the shore of Lake Huron with family.
