My Mission

I work to make sure you understand the pros and cons of all your options so that you can be confident in your decisions.  Even if you're “not an insurance person", you know you made your best choice.


Who I Am

My name is Carol Ballenger. I was born at Baptist Hospital, which is now St. Thomas Midtown, and I grew up in Nashville, TN.  After graduating from Vanderbilt University in the 80's, my first job was at Life and Casualty Insurance Company in downtown Nashville. Nashville has changed a lot since those days — no more Baptist Hospital or Life and Casualty Insurance Company!

When my husband and I started our family, I stepped away from corporate employment in favor of a smaller and more family-friendly environment. Over the years, I've held various positions but have always loved the challenge of learning new things and staying on top of industry trends.

As a broker, I can show you a wide range of choices and discuss the advantages of each.  Insurance is not "one-size-fits-all" and I recommend you steer clear of anyone stating that their plan is the best.

Let me know if you want some straight talk -- I'd be happy to help you wade through your decisions.
