Insurance has been a part of my life for a very long time. It all started with my dad, Ron Hooten, who opened our Memphis location in 1971. I took over the office when he retired in 2006. I personally have worked in the insurance business since 1987, by not only working in the agency but also working for in underwriting and various other jobs over the last 33 years. 

I was born and raised in Bartlett, Tennessee and have been part of the Memphis/MidSouth my whole life.  I love living in the South! I am an alumni of Harding Academy of Memphis.  I graduated from the University of Memphis with a Bachelor’s in Education. I am now a proud supporter of the University.  Some of our favorite local places in Memphis include Beal Street, University of Memphis Basketball and Football games, various restaurants around town and enjoying the outdoors at Herb Parsons Lake or fishing at Pickwick Lake.  I also enjoy attending a few Jackson Generals Baseball games and Redbird games in the summertime.  With all the amazing opportunities in every direction I could not imagine living anywhere else, but Tennessee.  Our communities are rich in history, especially music and the arts.

When I am not helping customers with their insurance, I love spending time with my Husband, Marix, and our kids. We love the outdoors and love to travel to places with lots of outdoor activities. We enjoy ATV riding, kayaking through rivers and streams, fishing and boating at Pickwick and hiking through state parks.  We especially love to travel to the beaches in the summertime. 

I have spent my life looking for ways to serve our communities from being a hospital volunteer that many have referred to as a” candy striper” when I was 14 to growing up serving others at church and in our communities it has been in my blood to want to help others.  Working in an industry of protecting those we love fits perfect into who I am and what I love to do! 

My team and I focus on your insurance needs to be met based on your circumstances.  Whether you need auto, home, life or business insurance, we take interest in your lifestyle and offer options that make sense for you. We keep each client informed and ready to make a decision for the needs they have at hand.

We are located in the Historical 4-way of Memphis/Bartlett Tennessee.  This was once the old Shelby Motel often seen on the history records as the place to stay while traveling.  It is now our office complex and we are proud of the history it represents.

Our Jackson location was owned by a family friend who started in 1968. Along with inheriting my dad’s office in Memphis, I took over the Jackson agency in 2007. Located on Carriage House drive as some may know as business row.  We are a stone’s throw from the Harley Davidson Motorcycle dealership, and you can see our bright blue sign from the Highway. We are located directly in the middle of Carriage House between Hwy 45bypass and Highland. 

Stop by either location and let's talk about how we can help you!
