Love the outdoors, spending time at the lake, my wife and kids and Insurance! I have lived in Huntsville, AL my entire life. I grew up in a christian home where my parents instilled a good work ethic, integrity and the importance of family. I have been married for 5 years to Stacy McRight. We have 2 kids, Millie & Drake. I have worked in the insurance industry for many years starting out at Farmers Insurance. I love helping and working with people every day, saving people money but also most importantly making sure they have adequate coverages for the things that mean the most to them. That’s when I made the decision to open up an independent agency. With an independent agency I have more control over the rates and coverages I offer my clients.

I have lived in North AL for my entire life. I grew up farming in Lacey’s Spring, AL where I grew cotton, soy beans and corn with my father and brothers. This helped to instill a great work ethic at a very young age. I attended the University of North AL and studied Business Management. I have been married for 39 years to Laura Kilpatrick Bell. We have 3 children, Ryan, Daniel and Chelsea. I spent 24 years working with Dunlop Tire Manufacturing Company in Huntsville, Alabama. I began my career as a production employee that covered absentee employees. I spent time training in Japan on their production and scheduling techniques that I implemented in the Huntsville factory. During my 24 years of service, I held jobs as a Production employee, Supervisor, Specialist, Auditor and Personnel Manager before retiring as Plant Shift Manager. After retiring from Dunlop in 2001, I became a small business owner by opening a insurance agency with Farmers Insurance. I have 15 years of insurance experience. In the community, I coach little league sports, and have been involved with all school systems throughout Huntsville. I have also served on the Board of March of Dimes and am currently serving as President of the High School Football Officials. I also work with the Alabama High School Athletic Association as a trainer & evaluator. I currently serve on the Board of the Alabama Hall of Fame Committee as well as A Board Member on the Alabama Sports Officials Foundation. As a Deacon at my church, I am involved in ushering, security, and hospital ministries.

Shawn Mertz — Agent Email

I am a native of Buffalo, NY but I have spent the last 12 years here in Alabama. I have spent the bulk of my professional career working in the financial services industry, predominantly as a lender and manager at several local banks. I made the switch to the insurance industry because I have a strong passion for helping people understand both their own personal finances, and how the financial system works. I enjoy making sure my clients have adequate protection in place in order to prepare for life's uncertainties. I love spending my spare time with my wife Amanda and our wonderful daughter Annabelle, and can often be found on a road trip to a new destination, or in the Smokey Mountains of Tennessee. We are members of Church of the Highlands, where I serve as an usher, financial coach, and small group leader.
