Scott is native to the Pacific Northwest and over the past 25 years has developed exceptional sales and connection capabilities while working in retail, manufacturing and sales industries. He joined the Brayer agency a year ago, is licensed in WA for Property and Casualty and is currently working toward his National Alliance CISR certification. Scott enjoys working with his Personal Lines customers, assisting them with their insurance needs, and has proven to be tenacious when it comes to resolving issues for them. Orin Smith's statement, "There is an enormous difference between talking about a promise and keeping a promise to customers, [and] associates...," resonates strongly with him. Scott is a promise keeper and holds this philosophy at the center of his customer relations and sales activities. Outside of work, Scott's interests include spending time with his wife, Debbie, and daughter, Emmilyn Jo, antique car shows, and 80's music.

She really enjoys getting to know clients and making sure each one has a positive experience. She looks forward to learning more about the industry and eventually becoming an agent. In her spare time, Teri enjoys taking road trips to the surrounding mountain areas and our beautiful beaches.

When not in the office spreading joy, she lives with her human family and enjoys playing hard and taking long naps.
