Can you describe your business?

I use cutting edge technology to shop with dozens of “A” rated insurance companies. In just a few minutes, I’m able to find the right coverage at a competitive price. I take the time to review all of the options and customize a policy based on the unique risks and desires of each client. After finalizing an option, I’m backed by a service team that has the highest client loyalty rating in the industry.

Why Currituck County?

I didn’t choose the “Tuk,” it chose me.

Are you from Currituck or did you relocate here?

I am native to the Outer Banks and have been blessed to have NEVER lived anywhere but Dare and Currituck counties.

Do you remember when you decided to start your own business?

Our coastal community can be very delicate to insure. I saw a need for more options when it came to insurance. When it came to insuring their most valuable assets, I saw a need for our community to have the power of choice... explained to them in terms that they could understand. I found a company able to provide a robust portfolio of carriers with “A” rated companies to do just that.

Why do you do what you do?

I see the struggles that our mainland and islands endure and I just want to be able to help where I can. I was already in the insurance business. Now, I’m just able to reach more people and provide more services. Helping makes me happy. I’m literally “happy to help.”

Did you consider other locations (besides Currituck)?

I considered an office in Kitty Hawk, but I’m so mobile I chose to settle down in Powells Point so that I could have easy access to both counties and beyond.

What’s the best part about running a business in Currituck County?

I get the freedom to move around the area and meet new and exciting people. I get to be more available to people when they need me. My boss is super easy to get along with if you feed her.

What’s the biggest challenge?

Starting from scratch. It’s hard to put your neck out there and live on faith. I promise you, I pray way more now than I used to!

What advice would you give to someone interested in starting a business in Currituck County?

GO! Get out there. Get out of your office. Get outside of your comfort zone. Call that connection. Make new friends. Go to those networking events. Just go.

What will people get from your business that they won’t get anywhere else?

The power of choice, a “down home” explanation of coverage, competitive rates, and a new fishing buddy.
