Meet Your Agent

About Me: I started in insurance in 2007 and quickly fell in love with being an insurance agent.  For six of the last seven years I worked as an insurance agent at AAA Pensacola.  I built a large client base and worked with multiple companies selling a range of insurance products.  I was consistently rewarded with top marks in customer satisfaction, and in sales.  If you asked the hundreds of clients I worked with I imagine most will tell you this of me: I deliver prompt service without sacrificing quality, take the time to educate so you can make the most informed decision for your coverage, and I am a man of my word.

I find joy in building a personal relationship with every client and working to help that person and their family find the correct coverage for them.  No two situations are the same, and cookie cutter solutions often leave people under-covered and exposed, or over-covered and overpaying.  You can be sure I will take the time to work with your unique situation to deliver customized superior coverage from a reputable carrier.

In 2020 I started Nelson Insurance Agency and purchased Tarbuck Insurance Services from a good friend of mine, Joe Tarbuck.  I am excited at the prospect of working with his existing clients in transitioning them to working with me, and earning the business of many new clients. 


Outside of work I am a husband to my amazing wife, Sarah and a father to a beautiful girl.  My wife and I are outdoor enthusiasts and we spend a couple weekends every year hiking trails in the Great Smokey or Blue Ridge Mountains of my home state of Virginia.  We also support the local arts, patronize many local restaurants, and volunteer supporting causes to help uplift our community and our country as a whole.  I encourage you to let me buy you a cup of coffee sometime, and get to know me.  If you don't have time for coffee send me a friend request on Facebook, follow me on Instagram, and I'm sure you'll find someone you are happy to do business with.

As my agency grows, my team will grow.  Check back in later and you may see several faces here.  For now you can rest easy in the knowledge that you have a very experienced, knowledgeable, agent at your side.  I look forward to learning about you and seeing how best I can serve you as your agent.
