More about Camron!

Camron is our newest member of A Plus Insurance and is achieving great things because he is backed by a wonderful team. While learning the ins and outs of insurance he is supporting the company in any way he can.

He was born and raised in Florida. He moved to South Carolina when he was 15 so he is happy to call it his home. When he sets his mind to something there are few things that hold him back. For example, he taught himself how to play several instruments, started his own business, and now has a strong desire to excel in Insurance. However as he wants it to be known, “everything I have done has not been achieved by myself, it has always been from the help of others. All my thanks go to my family and friends.”

More about Treasure!

Hello everyone my name is Treasure and I’m the newest CSR that was added to the team and I’m super excited to begin this new journey in my life! I was born and raised in Spartanburg, SC and I graduated from Dorman High School in May of 2019. During my time in school I enjoyed being on the track and field team participating in triple and long jump, learning different choir scores , and excelling in my studies preferably math and English. Since graduating I have picked up many new hobbies such as reading, mainly manga and novels, editing videos, streaming on different platforms, photography, fashion, cosmetics, painting, taking pottery lessons, roller skating, sewing, cooking, and exploring different food trucks. I am a people person so I love to interact and discuss many different topics with individuals, I love to make people laugh and smile even on their bad days to cheer them up, and I love to make many friends and have different experiences in my life with each person I encounter. I’m excited to be a part of the team and I can’t wait to meet and help each and every one of you!

More about Alexandra!

Alexandra was born in Chicago, Illinois spent part of childhood on St. Thomas in the USVI, before landing in the upstate of South Carolina. She was a pastry chef until covid started, and after that worked for a cryptocurrency company. In 2021, her entire life changed after being diagnosed with ALS. After several months of living the retired lifestyle, she chose to work again. The only thing she knew was she wanted a job where she could be creative and help others.

Her current role was the perfect fit. Her marketing duties allow her to use her creative side, while her insurance agent position allows her to serve others. She has only been with A Plus for a short period, but she enjoys being a part of such a great team and business.

Alexandra loves learning new things, and she is doing a lot of that these days as she works towards becoming a licensed agent. Her passions are cooking, rowing, science, and Yellowstone.

More About Veronica!

Veronica has been a part of A Plus Insurance for over a year and is excited to be a part of the team. She has been licensed to sell personal lines insurance products, but her passion is in content creation and marketing. She loves it so much that she spends most of her time trying to motivate and train others to love it as much as she does.

Born and raised in Baltimore, MD, she spent her school years in several visual art programs and has since been passionate about creating and helping bring the creative visions of others to life.

Since moving to the south, she has met many unexpected new loves, including but not limited to: the word y’all, chicken biscuits, pimento cheese sandwiches, and her husband of nearly 11 years, Marlon. They reside in Easley, SC where she has spent the last few years as a freelance graphic artist and social media content creator. She loves spending time with Marlon in their weekly volunteer work, creating films, stories, multimedia content, and eating weird foods. Their only source of contention is during football season where she roots for the Baltimore Ravens, and he is at odds with his support for the Miami Dolphins.

Fun facts: She will never be found without a cup of coffee in her hand, and must have sushi at least once a week.

What Else You Should Know About A Plus Insurance


In The Beginning

why being an insurance agent is a great career choice

Our company originally began as a “Life and Health” shop, but experiencing sheer encouragement from our existing clientele,we began to seek companies that could offer affordable auto insurance coverage.



Progressive Insurance was the first company to issue us an auto contract (and we are still very grateful). As we started to grow our book of Property and Casualty clients, we slowly added additional companies including, but not limited to Bristol West, Mendota, Viking, Dairyland, Travelers, and much more. Once again, at the urging of our clientele, we began to offer Home Owners, motorcycle, business insurance coverage. Ironically now we sell very few “life or Health” policies at all and are almost exclusively a Property and Causality brokerage.

We constantly strive to do the research with different companies to find out if they are going to be a good fit for our clients, both from a financial and coverage standpoint. Another goal of our agency is to provide outstanding customer service, prompt responses, and the ability to answer questions.

Our Products

We specialize in personal auto, home, and motorcycle insurance, but also include boat, RV, and business liability insurance.

At A Plus we have the ability to shop multiple companies, to try to find the most competitive rate for a client’s situation.

We also have many carriers that can offer SR22 filings on both auto and even motorcycle policies. If you do not have a vehicle, we also offer NonOwners or even Broad Form policies.



Our goal is to provide solutions that better protect the future of our customers. Teamwork, Integrity, Excellence, Passion, and client engagement are tenants of success at A Plus Insurance. Above all, we make sure that our interests are aligned with those of our clients.

A Plus Insurance And Technology

We utilize modern technology to provide exceptional and unmatched service to our valuable clients.

Not only do our prospective clients have the ability to do an online quote, but our knowledgeable staff is available via phone and email. Once we activate a policy, we have the technology to immediately send over proof of insurance documents via email or fax.

Additionally, we also utilize an electronic signature system for applications Which helps cut down on unnecessary paper waste. We have a very low-pressure approach to sales and about 75% of those who call us for quotes can save by switching.
