Insurance and Risk Assessment expert Cynthia Southerland has dedicated her career to helping people find the best solutions for their personal and professional financial and insurance needs. With over 30 years, Cynthia takes a holistic approach to financial health by offering a wide range of personal and business insurance services and financial consulting strategies to businesses and individuals. She is excited to bring her expertise to B2’s Risk Management Division and assist B2 clients with their insurance needs

Cynthia earned her Bachelor of Science degree from Texas Christian University in Education. Because her degree is in education she has a knack for understanding the complexities inherent in the insurance and financial industry – and for explaining them in terms her clients can understand. Cynthia gained comprehensive knowledge of the insurance field through first-hand experience addressing policyholders’ concerns as a customer service representative and assistant to other agents in the beginning of her career. Her knowledge deepened as she completed training to attain her Life Underwriter Training Council Fellow (LUTCF) designation and the Small Group Specialist (SGS). As an educator, she loves continuing her education every year to be a better resource for her clients and others.

Cynthia’s passion for helping and educating people found its perfect outlet when she founded Southerland & Associates in 1983. A true advocate for her clients, Cynthia is honored to bring peace of mind to individuals and business owners by listening closely to their risk management and financial planning concerns and finding the solutions that fit them to a tee.

What does Cynthia enjoy doing for fun? Helping others, including other species! Along with gardening, being in nature, delivering meals to the elderly and traveling, the activity that makes Cynthia smile is looking after the dogs and cats she fosters – and most times adopts – through Heart of Texas Lab Rescue and PAWS. She current serves on the Board of the Texas Women in Business, (TWIB) non-profit organization for women.
