After graduating college with an Associates in Horticulture, Ellis spent a few years working in the Green Industry. From time in his family’s nursery, to providing homeowners with proper pest control plans, to maintaining the vast native gardens of Orton Plantation, he has experienced most of what the local industry has to offer. During this time, Ellis began to realize he had a strong desire to spend more time communicating with people rather than just tending to the local flora. Once he stumbled across a certain Zig Ziglar quote, “You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help others get what they want,” he knew he had to find a way to do just that. After a little digging, he was offered a job selling insurance for a small agency in Leland, NC, so in 2016 he obtained the necessary licenses and took off!
After a few years spent pursuing other ventures, Ellis has now returned to the insurance business in pursuit of helping more people than ever! With a strong desire to provide the best product as well as the best personal service, he will be sure to make sure each and every client receives the absolute best coverage for the absolute best price.
Ellis is a Southport native and father to 3 children (Asher, Airlie, and Adeline) with whom he loves to spend as much time as possible. He has a fervent love for the outdoors, physical fitness, and music most of all. Ellis is a member of Pythagoras #249 AF&AM, holds a leadership role in the local men’s community leadership initiative known as F3 BruCo, and is a regular attendee and volunteer at Generations Church in Southport.
