Patrick Swaney
Agency Owner

I have been an agency owner for 10 years. I grew up in Covington, IN.  I lived there until I moved to Florida in July 2006.

I love knowing that I offer protection that my clients need and will benefit them.

I am a grandpa to 2 young granddaughters who I have so much fun with!

On the weekend, you can find my wife and I riding the roads of Southwest Florida on my Harley.

I rock a Karaoke stage, but only in my own home. 

I volunteer monthly at the Samaritans Health and Wellness Center.  It's a health clinic for employed uninsured and underinsured people in Lee County.

Craig Smith
Office Interaction Manager

I've been in the insurance industry since 2011. I am 2-20 and 2-15 licensed.

I was born and raised in  Wickliffe, Ky and moved to Cape Coral, FL in 2010.

I graduated from Mid-Continent University in 2007 with a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration and a Minor in Psychology. I also played 4 years of college baseball.

I get the most excitement out of my job knowing that when a customer leaves my office, they can do so worry-free. I know they are properly protected for when the unexpected happens.

Living in Florida it only comes naturally that I play golf, and I play a lot of it!

Growing up in Kentucky we live and breathe basketball so if you want to talk basketball, I'm your guy.

The outdoors. I love to hike and usually once a year I will make a voyage out west (Yosemite, Zion, Grand Canyon) to disconnect.

I use to coach high school baseball at South Fort Myers but had to give that up when my daughter was born. Someday I'll venture back into coaching.

Caroline Smith
Retention Specialist

I have been in the insurance industry for 7 years.  My goal is to build relationships with customers and help them to better understand their coverage.

I was born in Indiana but grew up in Henderson, Kentucky.  I moved to Florida in 2010 to be closer to family and join the family insurance agency.

I enjoy being able to teach people about how to stay protected properly.

I love music, even though I am not musical at all.  My family loves to Karaoke!

On the weekend I am usually outside playing with my 2-year-old daughter and my husband.

I love tv shows, reality, singing, drama, everything!  My DVR is always full.

I love doing anything to help children.  I have been a reading mentor and a volunteer at The Boys and Girls club.

Jay McGinnis-Loftin
Licensed Account Manager

I have been in the insurance industry for 2 years.

I am from Cleveland Ohio and am a proud Cleveland State Viking!

My favorite part about my job is to work with clients to make sure they completely understand their insurance and feel comfortable with what they have.

I enjoy fishing at Gasparilla Founds with my 9-year-old son.

On the weekends, I live at the Bowling Alley.  I must say I am pretty good!

My guilty pleasure is shopping for bargains at the Flea Market.
