Meet Our Team

I grew up in Spartanburg, SC and have been a life long resident. I attended Spartan High, Spartanburg Methodist College, and then eventually USC Spartanburg. My family grew up with not a lot of money and I was the first person in my family to graduate from college. I love where I live and because of that, enjoy giving back to our community.

I started my career in insurance working for a State Farm agency in 2001. I learned quickly how important it was to help people make wise decisions on preparing themselves from the unexpected. This lead me to open my own agency in 2006 and I love the impact we’ve had on our insured’s lives.

I’m most excited when I have an insured tell me thank you after a claim. That means we had them protected properly and offered them the best advice. I’ve had clients lose homes, cars, businesses, and even loved ones, and have been fortunate enough to help prepare each of them when disaster strikes. It’s never fun to experience any type of insurance claim but we are here to help make it as easy as possible.

I love putting together a fantastic team, like we have at our office, and making sure we offer unparalleled customer service. A good review or happy client makes all the hard work worthwhile!
When not working I enjoy spending time with my wife and 3 kids and trying to be the best Dad/Husband I can be. I love what I do professionally but if I’m remembered as a great Dad or great husband, nothing I do professionally will compare. I also love golf, concerts, music, and movies!

A fun fact about me is, I am part owner of a brewery in Boiling Springs, SC called New Groove Artisan Brewery. I love being a part of the Craft Beer community and watching another start-up business that I am a part of; grow and prosper.

Each year since 2003 my family has been active in raising money for the March of Dimes. We’ve experienced our own premature births and take great pride in raising awareness and money for such a great organization. I also enjoy supporting local schools, Mobile Meals, Make A Wish and many other charities. I am forever grateful for what I have and love giving a part of it back to the community I grew up in.

I was born and raised in Piedmont, SC where I graduated from Appalachian State University in 2005. I have accumulated a total of 14 years and counting in the insurance industry. 12 of those years have been in sales while 2 years are in property claims.

What I enjoy most about my work is the fact I am helping new customers save money and assisting them with any problems that may arise from their existing ones.

Away from work I really love watching sports, most especially college football. Most weekends you can find me relaxing with my family and appreciating the little things.

I grew up here in Boiling Springs SC. I gained a paralegal degree which really helped me with the insurance lingo when I first started in the industry.

I have 19 years of experience in the insurance industry and I have been with Jeff’s agency for the last 12 years. The thing that most excites me about my work is that we have a great team in the office.

A fun fact about me is; I really enjoy food! I travel to eat. I take pictures of my food. I’m a foodie. When I’m not working, I’m usually in the gym or spending time with my friends and family. My guilty pleasures are definitely chocolate covered donuts and red wine!

I grew up in the town of Cowpens and have lived in Spartanburg County for most of my life.  I have been helping clients with their insurance needs for 7 years as an Agent and Financial Account Representative.

The most fulfilling thing that I get to do for my clients, is to put more money in their pockets by saving them on their auto, home, and life insurance.

Aside from work; between sporting events, singing engagements, church functions, and everything in between, my family is always on the go but I absolutely love the time we spend together!

Most evenings are spent helping coach youth football and baseball, but when I’m not on the field I love to grill out with family, take spontaneous day trips, or kick back to a good movie.

I serve as a music director at my church and also play acoustic and bass guitar!

Licensed Customer Service Representative

I grew up in Coral Springs, FL. Then when I turned seventeen, my parents decided to move to South Carolina and we’ve been here ever since. My experience in the insurance industry has been very informative. I’ve learned so many things along the way while continually growing and becoming more educated to help my clients at the highest standard possible. I enjoy giving them amazing customer service that I pride our office on.

There are multiple things that excite me about my work. I take so much pride in helping out our clients in the best way that suits each of their needs. I enjoy being someone that can be approached no matter the situation.

When I’m not working you can find me at home spending time with my family or friends. I personally really enjoy being a mom to my little boy and simply being home and relaxing is my favorite weekend activity. My guilty pleasure would definitely be shopping and online shopping.

I am big into Animal Rescue. Animals can’t speak for themselves so it’s our part to do it and to take care of it for them.

I grew up in Spartanburg in a small town named Woodruff. I realized through that experience that knowing another language is such a powerful thing in today’s world. My experience in the insurance industry is continually growing. I have learned a great deal thus far from working here and I am looking forward to learning more!

It excites me that I can make people comfortable by respectfully providing them with information they previously could not understand. I can also make others who are speaking another language feel reassurance through speaking to me that they have someone on their side.

Apart from my work, I truly enjoy being a mother and I enjoy speaking about my daughter as she grows up. I’m experiencing her understand and talk for the first time and it has been such a great experience.

Typically when I am not at work, I am at home relaxing or enjoying my time alone or with some friends.

My guilty pleasure is I know how to draw quite well and enjoy art. It goes along with the fact that I enjoy makeup and it fascinates me. In regards to charity work, I enjoy learning about organizations that help out animals. Especially knowing that they cant fend or talk for themselves.
