Office Manager
T: 228-467-2898

I grew up in Kiln, MS and graduated from Hancock High School in 1995. I attended Pearl River Community College. I have been in the insurance industry for 15 years. The whole time has been with Allstate. For me, it is rewarding to see a customer leave the office with a smile on their face. I take great pride in making sure our customers understand their insurance needs. My greatest joy comes from spending time with my husband and two children. When we are not watching Alli dance or Cayden play sports, we enjoy camping. I like helping children that may not be as fortunate as my children. I have been active in the angel tree project during Christmas time.

I am a life-long resident of Hancock County.  I'm a 1994 Hancock High School graduate. In total, I have been in the insurance industry for 22 years.  For the past 6 years, I have been part of the Compretta Insurance Agency team. I enjoy working with and meeting new people. I also take pride in explaining to customers the best ways to manage their risk. I believe it is important to have a healthy work-life balance. Most of my time away from work is spent with my family, including my two daughters and son.

I grew up in Biloxi, MS.  I am a 2003 graduate of Millsaps College Else School of Business with an MBA. I have been in the industry since 2003 helping clients manage risk and manage investments. I enjoy helping clients reduce risk and provide guidance for future goals and objectives. When I’m not in the office, I spend time with my family and friends. Usually with my young son and my wife. I like to help others when I can, that is why I am the Board Chairman of the Gulf Coast March of Dimes.

Life Sales Producer

I grew up in Ocean Springs MS where I went to school for 12 years. Nothing can truly replace the loss of a life. But with life insurance, I can help their love live on by helping to provide their family with a solid future. That’s why I find it personally rewarding when I get to spend time with clients and help ease their minds about their future. Outside of work, I enjoy quality time with my family and restoring old vehicles. I spend most of my free time at home grilling out and working on my property. I believe the best way to positively influence our youth is to lead by example. I just finished up my first season as a coach for little league and can't wait for the next season to start!
Daphne Lyons
Benefits Specialist

I have lived all of my years in Wiggins, MS and plan to stay firmly planted as a South Mississippian forever. I worked with Hancock Bank for 15 years before I made the decision to join the independent insurance world and focus on employee benefits.

I have been a licensed insurance producer for 18 years. My emphasis has always been in small businesses. I love meeting everyone involved in making a business run. Each person is unique and necessary, from the CFO to the production line worker. I love to make sure each one knows exactly what they have.

I love my family, my church, a good book and tennis. Tennis has become my obsession this past year, and I am a work in progress. My weekends and time off consist of children, church, and tennis. My children play tennis competitively and 60% of the year is consumed by it.

I am a member of the local charity, C4AC. We support local cancer patients and it is near and dear to my heart.
