The Houk Insurance Team

Our dedicated team of professionals are here to help you.

DAVID HOUK

President

ALL LINES OF BUSINESS INCLUDING HEALTH AND LIFE

David joined the family business established by his father, Chris Houk, in 1976. After 15 years with the agency, he purchased it from his father. Thereafter, he purchased 3 additional agencies, Nunn, Doyle and Davis agencies, to form the current Houk Insurance Agency, Inc..

David is an avid golfer and has visited St. Andrew Golf Course in Scotland a few times. However, he loves to golf locally every chance he gets so don’t hesitate to hit him up on the golf course for a quote.

He is happily married to Melinda and together they have 3 fur babies. So no matter what your needs are, David can help with personal, business, life and/or health insurance.

ANDREW HOUK

Andrew joined the team after college where he majored in Insurance at Eastern Ky University. Andrew is also an avid golfer and has accompanied his Dad to Scotland to play at the infamous course of St. Andrew.

Andrew can assist you with a home, farm, or auto policy!

JAIME DENNISON

COMMERCIAL LINES

Jaime grew up watching her Grandfather and Father in the family business so it was a natural for her to follow in their footsteps. In 2008, Jaime began her career by writing commercial business shortly after graduating from Western with a degree in Accounting so her attention to detail is impressive!

Jaime is the proud mother of 4 children and during her off time Jaime enjoys spending time with her husband, Greg, and all of the children. She is usually busy trying to wrangle them into all of the never-ending church and school activities so if you see her, remember to call the office on Monday! She is way too busy on the weekends!

JANET JONES

PERSONAL AND
COMMERCIAL LINES

Janet is the newest member of our team. Although she is a native of the area, she spent 35 years in Atlanta which might account for her strange accent!

Janet joined our ranks in the summer of 2017. She received her license in 2019 and handles both personal lines of business and commercial lines. As a former restauranteur, Janet can answer questions unique to that industry as well as help with other types of businesses.
