Born and raised in East Tennessee, David has been in the insurance industry since 2010. He spent most of his professional career at Travelers and most recently worked at AAA. David graduated from Powell High School and attended Mars Hill College on a tennis scholarship and later transferred to Carson–Newman College where he was voted team MVP his last two seasons. The thing that attracted David to the insurance field is the ability to build long lasting relationships with clients while educating them along the way. A former teaching pro, David still stays involved in the tennis community by teaching private lessons to kids in his area as well as spending his limited free time working as a volunteer coach for Carson–Newman men’s and women’s tennis teams. David is married to his wife Tara and has 3 little girls named Amelia, Emery and Addison. In his spare time he enjoys playing with his girls and watching sports.
