Meet Our Team

Keefe Duterte
Principal Agent

My wife and I became members of the rich, culturally diverse community a while back and have loved every second of it. We love how family oriented it is and how it has helped us to develop our three children through parks, sporting events, and activities available here.

My local touch helps me connect and understand the community and their needs. I look forward to helping families like yours protect the things that are important – your family, home, car and more. I can also help you prepare a strategy to achieve your financial goals.

I try to give back to my community in any way I can, which is why you may find me working with Habitat for Humanity or even tutoring at an orphanage. We know that helping the community doesn’t just benefit those in need – it helps us to be better individuals.

You’ll find a true feeling of warmth and a desire to serve when you meet our staff. We strive to demonstrate integrity and character in all we do. When you stop by and see us, we can review your policy and help you explore the best insurance options for your family.

Ryan Smith

I left Cricket Wireless/AT&T Mobility as an Indirect Sales Executive to start my Sales career with West Virginia Insurance Group in August 2017.

My goal for the agency is to build long-lasting relationships with my customers. I want to be their agent for life and for the generations to come. My core values include honesty and integrity when dealing with all of our customers. I take pride in representing my customers and meeting their needs.

I grew up in Charleston WV, graduated from Capital High School and attended West Virginia State University.

I’m married to Stephanie, and we have one son, Sammy and these two are my world. I enjoy spending my spare time with my family.

When my schedule permits, you can find me at Revved Up CrossFit in Hurricane, WV. I enjoy the challenges that CrossFit brings with every workout.


Brittany Fitch
Customer Service Manager

My adventure into the insurance world has started with this company. I am thrilled to be a part of this team and am so blessed that they have welcomed me and made me a part of their family.

I grew up in Texas but moved to West Virginia a few years back. I instantly fell in love with the beauty of this state and with how tight-knit the community is. I recently started a family and am delighted to get the chance to raise my daughter in a place that is family focused.

The group I work with is so full of integrity and passion, and that makes coming to work every day so invigorating. I am excited to work with such a diverse community and am honored that I have the opportunity to get to know you and your family.

The thing I find most enjoyable is spending time with my baby. My daughter is my whole world and being able to watch her grow every day is so amazing!

More likely than not, you will find me with my family on the weekends. Usually, we are at one of the grandparent’s houses eating good food and creating memories.

I love reading. Any moment I get, I like to sit down with my daughter and read to her. I believe a lot of knowledge can be obtained from what we read and If I can pass anything onto my daughter, it would be the love of reading.

I love being part of a group that has such passion and drive to serve the community. It truly is amazing.

Corydon Fitzpatrick
Sales Manager

I live in Barboursville WV and travel to our Hurricane, Milton, and Charleston locations whenever possible. My wife Amber and daughter Teagan are the driving force behind all that I do. I joined the Allstate family in 2018 after 15 years in direct marketing, sales, and customer service. I quickly learned that this job was much less about insurance and far more about people.

What most excites me about my job is that every day we help people find solutions to their biggest concerns and help them protect what matters most. What I love most about our agency is that our guiding principle is to Leave Them Better Off. This means making sure our clients have better coverage, a better rate, and a better understanding of the coverages they have. My goal is to leave every person I encounter in a better place than when we met, if only from our warm conversation together. I look forward to having the opportunity to become your trusted Allstate advisor.

Marie Asbury
Customer Service Representative

I was born and raised in West Virginia. I grew up in a small town where everyone was there for their neighbors, family, and friends. I have been in customer service for over 20 years. I started in the insurance industry over 3 years ago with this company. My favorite part of my job is being able to assist our customers and having an amazing work family. The motto I always try to follow is to leave them better off. My goal with every customer I interact with is to be kind, fair, and understanding in all situations.

Shauna Taylor
Customer Service Representative

I was born in Manassas VA and raised in good ole WV. My family lived in a very small coal-mining town where you knew everyone. Before beginning my journey in insurance, I worked in healthcare for 5 years. Insurance is definitely not where I imagined ending up, but it has quickly become my passion. I’ve always had a passion for helping others no matter what the need may be. My husband Wesley (Andy) and I, believe it or not, met online in October of 2018. By May of 2019, we were engaged and moved 2 hours away from our families in June of 2019. We have been married for a year, have our precious puppy Bailey and are expecting our first child in Feb. of 2022. I’m approaching my 3 years with this agency and I could not ask for a better leader and coworkers. We all share the same core values in life and are very family-oriented. This allows us to serve our community with the best service around!

Shawnna Powell
Executive Administrator

Wesley Cogar
Sales Producer

I began my career in insurance earlier this year in 2021. I have a newfound love for helping people with their insurance needs. With multiple years of experience in service, I have a firm grasp and understanding of how people should be treated.

Some things to know about me: My wife is Gabrielle and I have been married to her for nine great years! She is a stay-at-home mother who takes great care of our three beautiful children (Braxton, Braydon, Maia). They participate in a lot of sports functions which keep us busy and happy. When I’m not working, I coach for the Elk River Huskies with the hope of one day coaching the high school program. Being a West Virginia native, I love our beautiful state and all the wonders that it holds.

My career goal is to provide quality service and coverage for every one of my clients personalized to fit their needs.

Chessica Parrish
Sales Producer

I have worked in insurance since 2008 and joined our team in 2020. My favorite part of this job is helping customers understand their insurance options and assisting with all their insurance needs so they can make informed decisions.

When I’m away from the office, you’ll find me spending time with my 3 girls, family, and friends or traveling.

I would be happy to help with all your insurance needs!
