Ask any group of high school students if they want to be a veterinarian and many would raise their hands. Ask if they would want to be an insurance agent and no one would move a muscle and what a mistake because the insurance business is such a great business. Like most children, Selena dreamed of a life working with animals as a vet, but by a wonderful accident she ended up in the insurance business and what a great thing that is for John Hackney Agency, Selena and her clients.
She started in the business by helping a friend in an agency and in 2000 started to work at John Hackney Agency where she learned and sharpened her insurance skills. It’s been a great career and one she has loved. She has worked in the personal lines field since 1997 and knows everything about homeowners, auto, boat, umbrella, mobile home, fire, inland marine, condo, apartment, motorcycle and life insurance you’d want to know. She might even be able to help you with health insurance for your cat or dog but not so much the health of your cat or dog itself. Born and raised in Wilson county, she graduated from Fike High School, attended Barton College and has lived in Wilson all her life. She has a lot of family still living in Wilson including her daughter, Brittany, who is married to Thomas Poythress and their new addition in 2017, her grandson, Bennett, who is her pride and joy.
Selena is the agency health nut, and she spends a lot of time focusing on wellness, exercise, and diet. She loves to travel any and everywhere, but Atlantic Beach holds a special place in her heart. She enjoys exercising, cooking with family and friends (healthy, of course), reading, and putting together family gatherings for special occasions and holidays.
Selena has her CISR professional designation and can help you with any of your personal insurance needs.
