Meet Our Team

Garland Boyd
Agency Owner

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!

Blessing Oyebola
Customer Service Representative

I grew up in Elmont, NY and I’ve lived here for most of my life. I currently attend John Jay College of Criminal Justice and I have an interest in law and legal studies too.

What most excites me about my work in the insurance world is learning new things and gaining insight from people from different walks of life while helping to guide them to their best coverage options.

On a more personal level, I enjoy traveling and doing fun activities such as bowling or roller skating. It brings joy when I get to have fun with the people I care about most. Something interesting about me that many don’t know is that I’ve been playing the trumpet for about 11 years. I began playing in my church in 2015 and I don’t see myself stopping anytime soon.

I’m a homebody so when I’m not working I’m entertaining family and friends at my place. I’ve also been a leader in my church’s Youth Ministry Team since 2019, mostly focusing on their social media aspect.

Miriam Michele Evans
Customer Service Representative

I was born & raised in Queens, New York.  I have a BA from Northwestern University and a Masters from Ling Island University.  Worked too many years for New York City Transit.  I am retired, and I am looking forward to serving All-State to the best of my ability.

I have worked for a short time selling insurance in the past, but that is not my role with the Boyd Agency.  I am a liaison for communication and customer service. I appreciate helping the community and customers with their interests and questions.

I enjoy enlightening people and sharing knowledge to better their lives, politics, books, films, etc. I love following stories and history through any media, particularly literature, film, travel. When not working and the weather is accommodating, I love the water..the beach, the pool..and I love to travel with good friends.


Jamaal Solomon
Staff Agent

I grew up in Brooklyn, NY, so I know how to help my clients handle tough situations. My bachelor’s degree is in business management with a master’s degree in taxation and now I’m a licensed agent in property and casualty insurance, as well as life, accident, and health.

Making a positive impact in people’s lives is why I’m so obsessed with entrepreneurship and helping small businesses grow. I also love writing and public speaking, even though I consider myself somewhat of an introvert! Facing fears creates personal growth as they say.

When not working or helping clients you can find me either with family or volunteering at my youth financial literacy nonprofit I founded called Crypto J Means Business Inc. Changing the way our younger generations understand finance and business is a powerful gift for their futures, something I’ve had the pleasure of witnessing first-hand.
