Meet Our Founder

I grew up right here in Lee County, FL (not many of us left). I graduated from Kaplan University in 2012 with a bachelor’s degree in accounting. In 2016, I decided to change course and join the insurance industry. Cubicle life was not for me lol! I started off in the supplemental arena (Aflac) and within eight years, I’ve added private Health insurance, P&C – Property and Casualty, Life, Dental, Vision and Medicare to my tool belt with great mentors along the way.    

Seeing people treated like numbers, the headaches and stress of filing a claim — I knew I could make a difference. Since then, I have been passionate about going above and beyond, delivering great quality service to our customers, and giving them the peace of mind they need. 

For over eight years now, my main goal has been to ensure my customers have the proper protection they need in ALL areas that affect their everyday lives. The values we cherish at Southern Comfort Insurance are to always be honest, reliable, and consistent in all aspects of how we run our business, giving customers the respect and care they deserve. 

On a personal note, I have a beautiful fiancé and two young children, ages 16 and 12. We love to spend time outdoors, traveling, movie nights and just plain ole’ having fun together. We have lots of animals! 10 chickens, three cats, a dog, and a snake. It’s a busy household to say the least.

I appreciate everyone who has been with me from the start and watched me grow from both a business standpoint and a personal standpoint. Thank you for the loyalty you have shown me! I look forward to continuing to help my community with all their insurance needs. It always puts a smile on my face when I receive a text or a phone call saying “Hey, you’re the insurance girl right? So and so sent me your information and I need…”. The referrals are greatly appreciated! I hope to always be “your insurance lady”.
