I grew up in an insurance family. I have been working in the insurance industry since 1997. Being successful in creating a knowledgeable and fun team that works together to provide excellent insurance solutions continuously motivates me.

I grew up in Wilmington, NC spending lots of time at the beaches and the beautiful historic downtown. I graduated from East Carolina University with a BS in Business Administration. I really enjoy spending time with my family, playing sports, taking bicycle rides with the kids and playing music with friends. You would hopefully find me traveling, but more likely you’ll see me doing a home improvement project. I can binge-watch a good show like a boss!

Being involved in my community is just as important to me as my business. I am on the Board of Directors in my religious community, and I have been a volunteer soccer coach for 16 seasons.

I began working in the insurance industry 25 years ago. My top priorities are client satisfaction and great customer service. The great employees I work with in our offices and the amazing clients I get to know personally really excite me about coming into work each and every day.

I grew up in and around Raleigh, NC and moved to Wilmington, NC 19 years ago. I always appreciate and enjoy being outdoors, especially in a quiet nature setting. I enjoy yard work, bike rides in the park and local high school sports. The beach never gets old either.

I support the efforts of the Lower Cape Fear Hospice and its mission.

I have been an agent with the company for four years. I enjoy helping customers save money.

I grew up in New Cumberland, PA. I love being a Girl Scout Leader and doing community service with the Rotary Club. In my free time, you can most likely find me relaxing in my pool.

I enjoy volunteering at Note In The Pocket.

Miranda Lee
Certified Sales Representative

At Heinberg Insurance, I take pleasure in helping with the needs of customers and assisting agents when needed. I like the fact that I am able to help new drivers learn new laws and regulations for driving in NC and educate them on what they need.

I’m originally from PA but moved to NC when I was 14 years old. I went to Bunn high school where I was part of FFA and have awards in interior design, apparel 1, algebra 1, and US history and graduated in 2012. I enjoy spending time with my family and my dog; I take her everywhere! I spend my weekends out at the farmers market or flea market. I’m not usually home, but if I am at home I like to swim.

I volunteer at the Franklin County Animal Shelter. I sometimes volunteer with Wakefield Rotary club, and I also help with girl scouts!

I have 10 years in the Insurance industry. I started as a Customer Service Rep and a few years later became an Agent. The thing I love the most about my job is that we all share ideas on what’s best for our clients and the office.

Most of my weekends I’m at soccer fields with my son’s soccer games.

Insurance Agent

I started working as a CSR at my agency in late August of 2018. I then became a licensed agent in December of 2018. I love being able to help clients find better coverage and pricing! I started working here right before Hurricane Florence and was able to see first hand how crucial it is to have insurance. I was very glad to see that the insurance companies we work with were able to help our clients repair their homes and vehicles.

I was born in Mexico and lived there until the age of 6. I then came to NC and have been here since. I really enjoy traveling. There is so much to see on this Earth. On the weekends, you can find me relaxing at the beach, a park, or at home. If you can’t find me there, I’m likely biking, kayaking, or hanging out with my friends!

I was in a band for 7 years, all throughout middle and high school. I was able to learn how to play the trombone, baritone/euphonium, tuba, and a little bit of trumpet!

I really care about Access of Wilmington. It is a non-profit organization that develops recreational programs to facilitate inclusive activities for children, adults, and veterans with disabilities.

I started working at Major Auto Insurance in August 2018. I love when a customer walks in the door looking for help but with the look of uncertainty but leaves with a smile saying thank you! It’s a great feeling to know I was able to change that moment for them into something positive.

I grew up in a small town known as Kittrell. I then moved to the small town of Henderson where I still reside. You can always hear me talking about my family and my children! I love being a mother. I love watching them grow up. It’s the most amazing journey. I think of my family and it puts a smile on my face. In my free time, you can find me home relaxing with my family or cooking, sharing laughs and making memories; second favorite is at the beach!!

I love home interior decorating, so I have a very bad habit of online shopping for decorative items.

I started as a CSR with Major Auto in August 2018 and obtained my license in January 2018. Currently, I am a licensed agent and write for auto insurance. I enjoy meeting new people and being able to help others if I can.

I grew up in a small country area called Fairport, located between Oxford and Kittrell, North Carolina. On the weekends, I enjoy spending time with my family at home or at a get-together.

I started working for the agency in August of 2015 and became an Insurance Agent in 2017. What excites me the most about being an insurance agent is knowing that I have the opportunity to help others in my community by either being a translator or by finding the best deal and the best coverage that I can for them.

I was born in Wilmington and grew up in a small town outside of Wilmington. I really enjoy spending time with my husband and children. When I’m not working, I like to spend my time cooking for them! I really enjoy cars and working on them. Since I was a child, I’ve been fascinated with breaking down parts and putting them back together.
