I started in the Insurance Industry in 2006. On June 1, 2019, I opened Backstrom Insurance Group as an Independent Agency with the Premise that Clients Always Come First! We focus on Personal Lines of Home, Auto, Life and Boat Insurance. Also we specialize in Business Insurance for the Local Business Owner.

I am a Native of Minnesota but moved to the South Bend Mishawaka Area in 1992. I now call South Bend Home where I live with His wife Debbie. My 3 Adult Children are overachievers including my daughter who recently received her Commercial Pilots License!

Prior to Insurance I managed bowling centers in South Bend and Elkhart!

Fun Facts: My College Degree is in Bowling Lanes Management, I am a BIG fan of all things Minnesota Sports, including the Vikings, Twins, Wild and Gophers! When I’m not working, I am probably out fishing somewhere.

Jami Potter

Jami Potter

Insurance Advisor

My name is Jami. I have been married to my husband Matt for 6 years. I have 3 amazing children. Lizzi is 12, Joas is 8 and Taylor is 2.

I spent my first 12 years out of high school working in the Carpenter’s Union local 413. Once my oldest went to school, I decided it was time for a career change so I could be the kind of mom I wanted to be. I have been in the insurance industry for 6 years now and have never looked back. I absolutely love what I do.

I am very active in volunteering at my kid’s schools. I do anything from Art Smart to field trips to planning their after-school functions. This past year, I coached Girls on The Run (although COVID shut us down). I also enjoy volunteering for Habitat for Humanity.

In my spare time, I enjoy working on my house, playing board games and anything outdoors.

Executive Assistant

Hello, my name is Sarah. I have been married to my husband, Brian, for 15 years. He is a firefighter for the City of South Bend and has always been my hero! We have one nine-year-old son, Cameron, who is the light of our lives!

I received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Journalism from Indiana University in Bloomington. Following graduation, I worked for two years as a staff reporter with an area newspaper. I then spent 15 years working in the world of banking, before joining the insurance industry in January 2022. My passion has always been to help others, with a mission to provide quality customer service.

I am an active member of the PTO at my son’s school. I serve on multiple committees and volunteer for school events throughout the year. I especially love watching my son play soccer during the fall and spring seasons. In my spare time, I also enjoy spending time with my family, shopping, watching Marvel movies, and crafting on my Cricut.

Independent Local Agent

Hello, my name is Mike. I have been married to the love of my life, Marylee, for 2 years. We have one amazing child, Piper, and we are expecting another girl in January!

I am no stranger to Michiana, as I grew up in the area. I am originally from Niles, Michigan, and I currently live in Mishawaka. After working in the medical field for 13 years, I decided it was time for a career change so I could spend more time with my growing family. I look forward to the opportunity to work with Backstrom Insurance Group and the opportunity to serve the Michiana area!

In my spare time, I enjoy watching college and professional sports. During the football season, nothing is better than a Michigan win on Saturday and a Green Bay Packers win on Sunday!
