Linda Willey is a native of North Carolina and grew up in Chapel Hill. She moved to the Outer Banks with her husband, J. Fletcher Willey II, and son, Johnny, in 1974. Together they opened The Willey Insurance Agency in 1993. Today she is the co-owner and Vice President of The Willey Agency, noted as one of the top 10 small independent agencies in the country. She is the first woman to receive the prestigious N.C. Independent Insurance Agent of the Year Award in 2009.
Her love of people and caring personality has led her to be invited and appointed to serve on many boards. Those boards include Roanoke Island Aquarium Advisory Board, The Outer Banks Hospital Development Council, Dare County Airport Authority, Food for Thought and the newly formed Hands of Hope, which helps bring specialized cancer care to Dare County and surrounding rural communities. She is also on the UNC Umstead Review Panel.
Highlights of her past accomplishments include serving as Chairperson for the Dare County American Red Cross, serving on the vestry at St. Andrews by the Sea Episcopal Church and serving on the N.C. Child Day Care Commission.
Linda considers her greatest accomplishment to be her son, Johnny, who resides in Raleigh with his wife, Cagny.
