In search of a new challenge, he then moved onto the insurance world where Don Carper Jr. had been for years as an executive for AIG owned companies. Sitting at the kitchen table armed with a phone book and the products of just one carrier, he began the grind to what has become one of his pride and joys in his life.
His others are his two boys, Donnie (24) and Bug (22) whom who enjoyed traveling with for their sports and continues to spend a lot of time with on the water, talking cars or on the beach, as they all begin adulting. Nevertheless, Don remains as connected to to the business as he was in the beginning. He is easy to reach 24/7 to address quote requests and attend to the needs of his clients.

Guardian of the Unexpected
I’m Stacy. I’ve lived in NH most of my life. I’m married to Shawn, my amazing and loving husband and together we have one big hearted and very energetic son Mason. I started my insurance career in 2001 selling accident insurance door to door (not the best job), then in 2002 I joined the Walnut Hill Insurance family, which has grown into my Davis and Towle Walnut Hill family where I am a Commercial and Personal lines Account Manager. When I’m not glued to a computer I’m wishing for a good beach day. I just may be addicted to coffee and I hate spiders. That’s me in a nutshell!
