Kim Glass

Originally from Goldsboro, NC I grew up enjoying getaways to our area beaches. I obtained a BS in Biology from East Carolina University, all the while volunteering on a local rescue squad and fire department.  I enjoyed giving back to my community and providing valuable services.  I went on to Medical Device Sales and was Certified in educating and fitting patients with Physical Therapy Devices.  When I moved back to Wilmington the end of 2016, I chose to become a licensed  Property and Casualty Insurance Agent in order to provide a different type of service.  I pride myself in working diligently with clients to find insurance policies that will meet all of their needs. It is my goal to help my clients understand what insurance policies make sense for them so that I can provide them with proper coverage.  In my free time, I like to visit with family & friends and explore this beautiful place I am fortunate to call home!
