Meet Our Team

Garland Boyd


Born and raised in Hollis Queens, New York. I love living in this corner of the city and I want to positively impact the lives of people in this wonderful community, so I take great pleasure from the work I do in my local church and from Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.

I graduated from St. Johns University with a BS in Marketing and have now over 29 years of experience in the insurance industry, which is always effective when advising clients on their policy needs. In the agency, I take great joy advising people how to best secure their assets.

When I’m out of the office, I really enjoy rooting for my New York Giants and New York Knicks. I also love spending time traveling with my family or just going out for my favorite pizza and pasta!

La-Schia Cox


I grew up in Jamaica West Indies.

I’m very passionate about the volunteer work I do with my church that provides assistance to various charitable organizations and individuals.

At work, I am always excited about helping customers and love surpassing their expectations. It’s just a delight to provide the best customer service I can possibly give because I truly enjoy helping others, whether it is a small or a great gesture…

My favorite way to spend my weekend is at church and with my family.

Priya Narine


I grew up in Queens, New York. Currently, I’m a student at St. John’s University

I started out as a customer service representative at the Boyd Agency and recently became a licensed sales producer. I really enjoy assisting our customers and helping in any way I can, whether it is answering one of their questions or going into further details on something they may not quite understand.

Out of the office, I enjoy doing yoga and meditating. It allows me to me clear my head, regain focus, and relax at the same time. My favorite way to spend a weekend is hanging out with friends and going out to dinner. I can also play the clarinet!

I love volunteering at a food pantry. They do amazing work and truly provide for those who are less fortunate.

Cathryn Neita


I grew up in New York, graduated from St. John’s University, B.S, and maintain 3 licenses: BR, PC, AND LA. I have ben in the insurance business for 20 years!

What I like most about my work are the long lasting and trusting relationships that we develop over time with customers. I take great pride from the positive feedback my customers give the team and me at Boyd Agency.

After work, I enjoy unwinding in front of the TV (“The Walking Dead” is my favorite show). On the weekends, I like hanging out with family and friends. My guilty pleasure is definitely television on early Saturday mornings.

Sometimes, I volunteer my time at my daughter’s school.

Morris Cordewell


Personal Financial Representative

I help protect the financial future of many local families in the Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Bronx, Staten Island and Long Island. My knowledge and understanding of the people in these communities help me to provide customers with an outstanding level of service.

I graduated from Baruch College with my BBA Degree in Business while still working full time. I was very active as a student because I took part in the Baruch College’s student government and was able to start a new evening account club to help my peers.
I get excited when a customer sends me a thank you note or card explaining how I helped their family in their time of need because I enjoy helping people to better protect their families and plan for their retirement.
On the weekends I like to watch football and basketball. I also love water sports like jet ski or para sailing but I am not a swimmer.
