 Eve Black Venters was born in Panama City, Florida, but spent most of her life in NC.  Eve began her career in insurance in 1983 following in her father’s footsteps.  In 1989 she became an independent agent and formed Black and Associates Insurance.  Eve has a passion for working with seniors and specializes in health insurance products for Seniors.

Outside of work Eve loves the Beach, traveling, painting, floral design and spending time with her family and friends.  She has previously owned two florists and is sure that talent was inherited from her mother who was a floral designer and owned a florist as well.
