White & Associates Insurance - Cary Insurance Agency was formed in 2011 to provide our clients a full range of insurance options by building on two companies’ legacies of long standing insurance knowledge and customer service. The partnership is comprised of White & Associates Insurance and Alan Cary of Cary Insurance.
White & Associates was formed in 1976 by Larry White in Dyersburg, Tennessee. White & Associates is comprised of 12 locations in West Tennessee, Missouri and Arkansas. In 1965, James Cary began working with BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee and later formed his own agency, Cary Insurance. Alan Cary, his son, began his insurance career in 1989 and moved back to West Tennessee in 2000 to join his dad’s agency. Cary Insurance, led by Alan with assistance from Vickie Hazlewood, is dedicated to employee benefits and offers our clients a unique opportunity to work with employee benefits specialists. Alan and Emily Wiley provide our clients with property & casualty insurance coverage options.

Although insurance runs deep in the Cary family (Alan’s younger brother, John, works for BlueCross BlueShield and his father had a lifelong career in insurance), after graduation from Freed-Hardeman University, Alan spent some time in radio and television! In 1989, he made the decision to follow in his father’s footsteps and began his insurance career working for BlueCross BlueShield. Alan moved back to West Tennessee in 2000 to join his dad at Cary Insurance. Alan is an active member of his church and the community, serving in the Martin Rotary Club and the Martin Business Association. Alan and his wife, Kim, have two children, Addison and Anderson. If you want to know something about the cultural icon, Prince, Alan is your go-to guy!
Vickie Hazlewood’s career in insurance began in 2008 when Alan Cary was introduced to her at a local doctor’s office. Since then, she and Alan have made a fantastic team and her knowledge, service skills and friendly voice have guided many clients to better days! Despite many arguments, she does not work at a pharmacy, but her identical twin, Becky, does. 🙂 Vickie is a lifelong resident of Martin and she is an avid volunteer. Vickie is a member of the Martin Kiwanis Club, where she currently serves as the President, and she also enjoys her work with the Special Olympics. Vickie and her husband, Madison, have one daughter. If you see a little red-headed pitcher slinging strikes on the softball field, you can rest assured Braedyn’s momma is near!
Emily joined White & Associates in June of 2014 and came to us with over seven years of prior insurance experience. She and her husband, Adam, have two children, Jack and Jane. Emily loves being active in her church and enjoys being a part of anything that has to do with her children. She serves in the PTA at both of her kid’s schools and is always there to lend a helping hand. When she has a spare moment, she enjoys reading a good book.
