Sally Corbin is the CEO and owner of Union Services Agency. She and her father, Gary Corbin, started the company in her basement almost 20 years ago and have nurtured its growth into the Agency it is today. Her path to serving unions and nonprofits began in her politically active family, when she was knocking on doors in the Flint area during her dad’s political campaigns as a kid. Sally earned her B.A. in International Relations in 1993 at Michigan State University. After a stint living in Spain, Sally went on to study law, receiving her JD from Cooley Law School. After years in the field, Sally and Gary realized the need for an insurance agency devoted exclusively to unions that is sensitive to their political needs, and started USA. A mindful entrepreneur, Sally is licensed for Casualty, Property, Life, and Health Insurance and combines this with her political and law expertise to provide trusted superior service to her clients.
Sally is also a visionary. In 2013, Sally once again saw an opportunity to push the growth of unions and their related, vital organizations, and started the Digital Media branch of USA. A web development and social media consultancy that works with union clients, USA Digital Media is one of the only agencies of its kind in the country and continues to be on the cutting-edge of the digital media field in a web-based world. Sally is always thinking one step, one year, one generation ahead, and it shows in her work. When she’s not at USA, she is traveling, whether that be around the globe or to beautiful northern Michigan.
