What do you like most about R&Y?
I love Ross & Yerger’s commitment to remain a privately-held Mississippi-based agency. As a KSOP, every employee has a vested interest in the success of our agency. Even as our volume and footprint consistently grow, we relish in the autonomy to make all decisions at the local level. Everyone is encouraged to have a voice in our operations, which fosters a teamwork environment.

What is the one thing many people don’t know about you?

In My Free Time:
I love spending time with my family and friends. I grew up in a close-knit family, and I enjoy continuing that tradition with my children. Gracie and I love listening to good music while we cook, and I persistently try to improve my very mediocre golf game when I can.
