Family: Rebecca Robinson Davis (sister)
Years in Golden Isles: Moved here in 1999, from Morehead City, N.C. (21 years here)
School: West Carteret High School, Morehead City
Occupation: Owner of an independent insurance agency
Favorite landmark in the Golden Isles and why: East Beach. I grew up close to the beach and love it.
Describe your perfect Saturday in the Golden Isles: It would start with golf in the morning, then I would watch college football in the afternoon and end the day boiling and picking blue crabs that evening.
A local you admire and why? Paul H Sanders III. Paul has been better than a father to me. He has such a great character and is always in such a good mood.
What is one thing every visitor must do before leaving the area? Every visitor must get some to-go food from one of our local restaurants and go eat it on the beach.
What is your favorite part about being a local? I love how we are such a tight-knit community, and if there is ever a family/person in need, we all come together and help in some form or fashion.
How did you come to start SSI Tee Time?
I’ve been to Seaside and Destin, Fla., a few times vacationing. Seaside has a great promotional logo that is very simple and classy looking, in my opinion. Lots of people buy a sweatshirt, hat or shirt from there. I’ve always thought St. Simons needed something of our own along those lines. Doodling and working with it in the back of my head for about 10 years, I finally decided to pull the trigger and see if anyone else thought it was a good logo or not.
What is your favorite part of SSI Tee Time? I feel like the logo is very simple and I can do so much with it. I like the creative piece of this, which is so different from the insurance industry. It’s a real honor to see someone wearing something you’ve created. I almost can’t describe that feeling.
What are you looking forward to most in 2020? Three things mostly. My sister and her husband are very close to adopting 6-year-old twins, a boy and a girl. These kids are amazing!They are infectious with their laughter, personality and fun nature. I just closed on my office building on Jan. 2. I am doing a complete renovation with new offices along with an official SSI Tee Time shop! I am also very close to getting my private pilot’s license. I am really excited about all of it.
