Jeremy and his wife of 17 years, Caroline, are big on celebrating and nurturing family.

Caroline is an academic advisor at Samford University in the Brock School of Business.
My life’s foundation is three F’s: Faith, Family, and Friends. My faith has been a large part of my life. Growing up in church with my family, I was taught to love God, put others first, and help those in need. If there was a community event, we were there to volunteer. These life lessons carried over when I left the oil and gas business to begin my insurance career in 2010.
I worked as a captive insurance agent for years with a company focused on ancillary life and health insurance products for individuals and small businesses. I was a top agent and recruiter for them for years, gaining a lot of. training and experience. However, I knew there was more I could do to help the people I met. I was a sales and leadership coach for Southwestern Consulting for two years, coaching managers and salespeople in multiple industries. My time coaching taught me that helping others in the insurance business was my passion. While this season of life was a huge part of my story, it was just one more step in the direction I knew I was created for.
To better serve my clients and community, I opened the Southern Heritage Insurance Group. This fully independent insurance agency created the ability to help individuals and small business owners but also to help other agents grow their businesses. The training and development of different agents within my agency is a passion of mine. This helps me help more people throughout the country. Instead of only offering five products, our agents can now ask what people need help with and find the best solution to their insurance problems. I found my true passion was a “safe money” life and retirement planner. While I receive great joy in helping others plan their legacy, nothing compares to assisting families in leaving a legacy for their loved ones.
Serving Our Community Since 2010
