Shannon Dopkins

Licensed Florida Public Adjuster

Before joining Tutwiler and Associates, Shannon began her career as an all-lines property claims adjuster with USAA for over 5-years. During those years her proficiency of the claims process grew as did her desire to ensure policyholders received the highest caliber of service for their claims. She would eventually move to a smaller property insurance company named Prepared Insurance (which has since been acquired by Lighthouse Property Insurance). It was there that she was given the opportunity to work more complex claims and was introduced to claims involving Public Adjusters and Attorneys representing the insureds. Shannon then moved her talents to American Strategic Insurance (ASI), now known as Progressive Home, and became a Senior Claims Adjuster. While in this role she worked closely with Public Adjusters, Attorneys and Assignment of Benefits (AOB) vendors to negotiate claims settlements as well as develop and teach training classes for other adjusters. Shannon became a supervisor over a team of approximately 10 property claims adjusters before exploring an opportunity with Heritage Insurance as a Commercial Claims Examiner and Corporate Representative. During the pandemic, she took an opportunity to work from home as a Supervising Adjuster with Florida Peninsula Insurance handling residential claims.

Shannon brings with her over 11 years of working for insurance companies where she has developed proficiency, knowledge, and customer service. She will utilize her experience when representing insureds in their claims against their insurance company.
