Andrea Avery

Meet Andrea Avery

Andrea Avery got her start in the insurance industry in 2004 right after college. The CEO of her company saw something in her and sent her out into the field to make cold calls, propelling her into a successful career. With fifteen years of experience in the insurance industry now, she has honed sharp skills in helping clients assess their total cost of risk and recognize significant gains to their bottom line.


She focuses on auto liability driven accounts, distribution, trucking and rail, and has worked extensively with alternative risk programs, group captive, and large deductibles. An Arkansas native, she attended Ole Miss and lived in Birmingham, AL before moving to Knoxville in 2013.


Outside of work, Andrea’s passion is working with children. She currently serves on the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Gala Auction Committee and is involved with The Next Door, an organization that helps women, generally mothers, re-enter after incarceration, treat addiction or recover from long standing mental health issues. She has also participated in events for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. She enjoys traveling (frequently to Arkansas and England, where she and her husband’s families live) and spending time with her daughter Mary Raley, son Jack, and husband John.
