Welcome to Team Baldridge located in downtown Brevard, NC. Our mission is to make a positive impact on our team, family, and community by educating our customers on insurance options that fit their family's needs. We are open Monday-Friday, ready to serve you with in-person appointments or walk-ins. Alternatively, we can accommodate appointments via phone or video conference. Reach out to our team by calling or sending a quick email through our website to schedule a dedicated time for you. Our office provides ample onsite parking for your convenience.

My office and I enjoy working with our customers to help with car, home, renters, life, health and business insurance needs. We also offer insurance on 2nd homes, even those working with AirBnB or VRBO for vacation rentals. Relocation is a specialty of ours for new neighbors in the area. We love our locals as well! We can also insure all your toys--boats, rv's, campers and atv's. Our office is close to Rosman, Lake Toxaway, Cashiers, Highlands, Cedar Mountain, Penrose, Etowah, Hendersonville, Balsam Grove, Sapphire, Little River, and Mills River. We have expanded to provide insurance in Georgia and South Carolina.

We are passionate about our local organizations! I love being involved with Younglife, FCA , the Cindy Platt Boys and Girls Club, St. Baldrick's, and Transylvania County Little League. We are proud members of the Transylvania County Chamber of Commerce. Supporting local groups is a part of our team's mission to make a positive impact in our community.

Brevard has been my home since 2002. I was raised in Georgia and attended the College of Charleston in South Carolina. Alongside my husband, we have three highly active daughters who are heavily involved in college and high school activities, particularly volleyball. During weekends when we're not traveling for tournaments, you'll find us enjoying hikes with our Bernese Mountain dog, Boulder. (He occasionally pays visits to the office and loves meeting new people.) I also have a passion for cooking and take pleasure in preparing meals for my family and friends. I love cheering on the Georgia Bulldogs!
