I was born and raised in the beautiful hills of East Tennessee. I started my insurance career with Ron back in August of 2015. Not only do I enjoy helping our customers adequately cover what is most important to them, but I also pride myself in forming a personal relationship with our customers and make sure their needs are met. I am licensed in TN & VA, and I can assist with your Auto, Home, Life and Health insurance needs.
