Meet Our Team

Todd Darragh

Owner and Principal Agent

I grew up in Greenwood and graduated from Greenwood High.

Finding the right coverage and catering to people’s, and their family’s, needs is still one of the things I find most rewarding about the job I’ve been privileged to do for the past 10 years.

When I’m out of the office I like spending time with my family. I also enjoy playing golf, when the weather allows.

David Lankford

Sales Representative

I grew up in New Ellenton, South Carolina.

I’ve been in the insurance business for ten years. What most excites me about going to work every day is the fact that I get to interact with people, helping them to understand what their insurance is doing for them.

Most of my free time is spent working and relaxing in my garage. I also like to listen to talk radio. One interesting thing some people might not know about me is that I am a United States Navy Veteran, with 27 years of Service.

Betty Ann Piela

Senior Customer Service Representative

I grew up in Pennsylvania and before I started working with insurance, I was in real estate for 25 years.

It’s now been 10 years since I came to the Darragh agency, and I just love helping people obtain the best coverage on their personal property and helping them to maintain their financial goals. I really enjoy making personal connections with the people I talk to, and at the end of the day, I take great joy in knowing I was able to help them with whatever problems have arisen.

I love tennis! When out of the office, you can definitely find me on the tennis courts or watching all the tennis matches that I can.

I’m very passionate about St. Jude Children’s Hospital. They do amazing work for children.

Karen Wiley

Sales Representative

I grew up here in Greenwood, SC and graduated from Greenwood High School. I am also a licensed cosmetologist from the Greenwood Vocational School.

I’m fairly new to the insurance industry, compared to my peers, and am glad to be part of such an experienced team. Communicating daily with customers and making them feel at ease, making them feel like they are more than just a number, is what most excites me about my job.

When not working, I enjoy spending time with my family! I have a daughter, Cassey, and two grandchildren, Chloe and Luke. They are my world and I can hold endless conversations about them. I also love working out, dancing, shopping, and cooking. One of my favorite ways to spend the weekend is at North Myrtle Beach.

I the past I have volunteered with Meg’s House. I’m also a staff member for New Life PHC youth group.

Kay DeBlaey

Senior Customer Service Representative

I moved from Wisconsin to South Carolina 35 years ago. The heat and humidity took some adjustment, but it beats the zero winter temperatures any day!

I have worked in insurance for 30 years as customer service rep. I can’t even believe it has been that long! I love my job and it is always great to be able to help our customers and give them the assurance that they are being well taken care of for their insurance needs.

Life has changed for my husband and me since we were blessed with 3 beautiful granddaughters. And when I’m not at work, I keep busy with many interests: church, sports, music, yard work, travel, and my family. They make my weekends fly by.

I also play the flute and have become a member of a flute choir. Such fun! I also enjoy helping out with the children at Connie Maxwell and serving alongside others at my church.

Samantha McNeill

Licensed Sales Producer

I grew up in Abbeville SC.

Being able to provide customers with quality protection and affordable rates is what I enjoy most about my role here at the Darragh Agency. It’s always rewarding getting feedback from customers after reviewing their quote/policies and helping them understand their current or potential coverages & savings.

Spending quality with my family is what I really LOVE! I always seem to make most conversations turn into something to do with my kids! It doesn’t take much to make me happy, whether I’m curled up on the couch having our “family movie night”, spending the weekend by the lake during the summer, or just sitting outside by a fire enjoying each other’s company when it’s chilly outside. As long as my weekend consist of family and friends, it’s sure to been a good one! Some Turtle Cheesecake doesn’t hurt either.

Teresa Masters

I grew up in a small part of Laurens County. During high school, I spent most of my time in the NJROTC (Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps).

My experience in the insurance industry has been a different one, to say the least. I like learning new things and having new experiences and thus far, I’ve enjoyed it. I would have to say what excites me the most about my job is helping people who come into the office. Seeing others happy and laughing is the best reward for me!

When not at work, I love spending time with my husband. I feel like I could never have enough time with him. My favorite way to spend my weekend is probably baking or taking a swim in the pool.

I try to volunteer whenever I can and love helping out at our local soup kitchen.
