I am the owner and active agent at Coastal Shield Insurance. Originally from the Baltimore/Annapolis area of MD, I remember touring lots of homes with my realtor father when I was little. Most kids would have been bored, but I LOVED it. I moved to NC to attend UNCW in 2000. I graduated with honors from the Cameron School of Business and started out working as a loan processor for Wachovia Mortgage. From there, I decided I would follow in my dad's footsteps, and obtained my real estate and then my brokers license in 2005. Loving real estate, but not loving an emotional sale, I gravitated towards the insurance side of things, and obtained my property, casualty, life and heath insurance licenses in 2006. I started working as an associate agent at Nationwide and after 5 years wanted to further my career and became an agent at NC Farm Bureau Insurance in 2011. After 7 years at Farm Bureau I wanted to be able to offer my clients more choices for insurance, and better premiums, so I opened Coastal Shield Insurance in 2017. I love my job and my clients, and believe that everyone should be treated with kindness and compassion, and try to instill that into my agency on a daily basis. Outside of the office, I love spending time with my husband Andrew, and our 3 children, Austin, Alexandra and Alaina. I also enjoy running, surfing, pilates, am a Reiki II trained practitioner and love coaching children in gymnastics.
Being raised in eastern NC, I relocated my family to Kure Beach in 2000. As a NC State grad, my career began at Nationwide, as a student which lead to an insurance career. As a commercial underwriter, I learned all aspects of the industry which led to an exciting career. I became a licensed agent in 1983 and have remained in sales/marketing since that time. I am working now to assist other seniors to increase awareness and knowledge of their insurance products. I will gladly review and offer additional options.
I was born and raised in Maryland and attended Montgomery College. I started my insurance career with Nationwide in Washington, DC when I
I received my Property, Casualty, Life and Health license back in 1991 I then worked as an Agent for various Erie Insurance Agencies. I have held
several positions over the years from customer service, sales agent to management and always enjoy helping clients meet their insurance needs.
I moved to Wilmington in 2018 with my husband and am loving the coastal lifestyle. In my spare time I enjoy working out, reading and spending time with friends and family.
I graduated with a B.A. from Salisbury State University in Salisbury, MD in 1998. My wife and relocated to Kure Beach in 2003 and I obtained my property & casualty license in 2006. While I don’t consider myself a typical salesperson, I find my strengths in having a firm grasp on guidelines and underwriting, which helps me quickly find the most competitive company to meet my clients needs. Outside of the office you can find me on the beach with my wife and daughter surfing, playing music or in my garage woodworking and tinkering with classic cars.
