About Hedges Insurance Agency, LLC
Hedges Insurance Agency was founded by Trish Hedges at the insistence of her father.
Back then, she simply wanted a career that would let her stay near her young family. Her father, JC Dew, insisted she had the stuff to be a better agent than the “norm”.
He had been an insurance claims adjuster for most of her life and certainly dealt with his share of insurance agents.
As she took most of 1999 to research the field, develop a business plan, study and acquire the necessary licensure, she officially opened for business in May 2000, two weeks before her father passed away.
Using the diligent work ethic she’d been raised with, she started this business from scratch … something she didn’t know was unusual in this day and age.
She didn’t inherit it or buy it; she earned it and worked for it! Worked for the trust of each and every customer by promising something different, something better than what they were being given.
Our office always has been set up to feel like home. The reason for that is simple, we want you to feel at home with us … like part of our family. Hold us to the higher standard of service we strive for – we hope you’ll provide your comments on how we’re doing anytime on our website or during our annual client survey every May. We know that you rely on us to protect your most valuable treasures, your family, home, vehicles, and businesses. We are here for you!
MEET THE TEAM
Card Playing, Grandmother of three girls, and Insurance Agent!
Trish started the agency from scratch in early 2000 at the prompting of her father. She grew up in Oklahoma but moved to Lynchburg to attend Liberty University where she enjoyed singing in the Liberty University Fellowship Gospel Choir.
To this day, she will occasionally dust off her “pipes” and sing with a local jazz band.
She enjoys spending time with her family, drinking whatever Heather mixes up, watching baseball, reading, playing craps, poker and working.
She is passionate about keeping things local and it isn’t unusual for her to be found at the office on a weekend sponsoring a local charity’s car wash, yard sale, etc.
Cruiser, Racer, Gamer and Insurance Agent!
Heather began her insurance career with the agency in 2003, after a 3 year hiatus from work so she could care for her 22 week preemie daughter.
This life-altering event is why she is so passionate about the Children’s Miracle Network! She wears many hats in the office as a CSR, Agent and Office Manager. In her free time she enjoys cruising, gaming and mixology.
As an avid motor racing fan, she loves Formula One, MotoGP and spending time with her husband and now teenage daughter at various racing events.
Every year, they sponsor a Horse Rescue event tied around the Kentucky Derby and raise funds to help out a local horse in need of help!
