Ash/Welborn Insurance Backs This Year’s Soque River Ramble!

Ash Welborn Insurance v2Ash/Welborn Insurance in Cornelia Georgia is a new sponsor for the Ramble this year!  Julie Wilkinson, agent for Ash/Welborn, decided that it was a good fit for their company to be a sponsor based on the company’s increasing interest in supporting community events in Habersham County.

“I grew up in northern Habersham County,” said Julie.  “In fact, when I was in college, my parents owned a home in Land O’Goshen subdivision, which is right on the Ramble run/walk route. I have fond memories of the area and of the Batesville Fall Festival held each year at the Batesville General Store & Restaurant.”

Julie is married to Nelson Wilkinson and is the mother of Nelson Charles (age 8), Sarah (age 5), and Jacob (age 8 months). Julie has been a team member at Ash/Welborn for over five years, working first in accounting and now currently as an insurance agent. “I work primarily with referrals interested in home and auto policies, but I can help businesses with commercial policies as well.”

Ash Welborn Portrait v2Ash/Welborn Insurance was established in 1991 by Joe Welborn, specializing in providing Workers Comp, General Liability, and other commercial insurance.  The company soon expanded into a full service agency to better serve the needs of their customers by also providing insurance such as auto, home, Umbrella, life and health.

“Being an independent agency means our office can quickly provide you with competitive quotes through our many A rated companies,” added Julie. “Some of those companies include Auto-Owners, Safeco, Progressive, State Auto, Grange and The Hartford.  But these are only a few of the companies that we have available.”

“One of the big changes for the insurance business locally are the state fire protection classifications,” explained Julie. “Living in a rural area like ours means that insurance rates are based on factors like the distance your home is from a local fire station and the access fire departments have to a water supply. But even though insurance rates in general have been going up in the industry, I can usually find you a very competitive rate from one of the many companies we work with.”

“I want all of this year’s participants to know that I am here to work for you and to be sure you have the coverage you need, when you need it, at very competitive rates,” said Julie. “Feel free to call me anytime at 706-969-9399, or you can email me at
