I am a native of Lakeland, Florida, and a graduate of Polk State College and Life Christian University. I have been married to my wife, Kathy, for over 25 years, and we have a son, Caleb.
Before starting my insurance career in 2007, I worked in manufacturing with Publix Super Markets, Inc. for 15 years. I began my career in insurance selling Medicare Advantage Plans, Medicare Supplement Plans, and Part D Prescription Drug Plans. I later became a Captive Agent with UnitedHealthcare for eight years. I love what I do and felt I could best serve those in my community by starting Medicare Connection with Parker Stone.
I enjoy spending time outdoors and riding motorcycles. I also have a passion for volunteering and ministering to inmates in the Polk County Jail.
I was born and raised in Lakeland, FL, and have built a life here with my wife and three kids. After graduating from the University of South Florida with a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing and Management, I became a licensed insurance agent and began selling Medicare Plans in 2008. In 2010, I went to work as an independent agent for UnitedHealthcare. After nine years with UnitedHealthcare, I wanted to be able to serve my clients better so Chris Carroll and I teamed up to open Medicare Connection.
My biggest passion in life is spending time with my wife Courtney, and my three kids, Boone, Reese, and Baylor. We spend our free time on our farm in Georgia as well as weekends away enjoying our local beaches. We attend Highland Park Church and love being active in our community.
