Office Manager

I have worked in insurance for just over one year and I have loved every moment working in this exciting industry. I grew up in Eldred New York.  I am from a small town in the part of New York no one thinks exists. I love it when I can help people understand what insurance is, how it protects, and better ways to effectively protect themselves. I have always had a great love for sports, personally playing golf is my favorite. I love working in my yard and getting back to nature. I rarely feel that I am able to get there enough as I should. I really enjoy listening to books on tape.  It allows me to listen while I work/play.

I have been working in the insurance industry off and on since the end of 2009.  I have recently reacquired my Property and Casualty license in the spring of 2017. I am a local native of Newport News.  I have a degree in Information Systems Technology and in Business Management. I love to assist customers with their insurance needs, saving them money while providing them with the all the value that Wease Financial has to offer.
In my time away from the office, I enjoy spending time with my family and exploring the rich history of the area.  If I am not exploring our nearby sites you will find me experiencing local cuisine and learning the history of this area with my family or you will find me at home tending to my small chicken flock. I love to create things with my hands I am a crafty person.  I recently learned how to crochet and enjoy creating wearables. I also love to sing and have been interested in music since I was a child.  I volunteer on the weekends by helping individuals who are interested in learning more about the Bible.

Bill Hill

I have worked in the insurance industry for 40 years. During my time in the industry I have had the opportunity of filling many roles from licensed sales professional, up to agency owner. I grew up in Hampton VA.  I went to college at W&M Norfolk div. I love working together with people to find the proper coverage for them and their family. I really enjoy the study of investments, and financial planning to meet my personal goals. I have owned several homes on the outer banks of NC and enjoy being able to spend my free there. That is where you will find me whenever I can get away. My guilty pleasure is indulging in my sweet tooth. My favorite dessert is ice cream of any flavor. I spend a large amount of time working in the community thru my membership at Williamsburg United Methodist Church.

I have been in the insurance industry as a licensed agent since 2015. Before coming to Wease Financial and being a licensed agent, I worked at a hospital in the billing department. I am a wife, a mother of a son and daughter, a sister and a daughter myself. If I am not working, I am spending time with my family. I wish I had more time to go running and boating on the York River but I get out there when I can. I received my life, health and annuities license in 2015 and am pursuing my property and casualty license for 2018. Give me a phone call to get some quotes for life insurance and soon to be auto and home insurance. I look forward to talking with you! My father was in the Army and I was born in Alabama. I have lived in Alabama, New Jersey, Maryland, Germany and have been here in Virginia since 1998. I have an Associate degree in Social Science and a Bachelors of Science degree in Criminal Justice. I enjoy giving clients the protection they need in the event of a life-changing event. Just as any mom, I enjoy spending as much time with my kids as I can and date nights with my husband to anywhere we can get to.

I have been in the insurance industry since 2014. I grew up in Williamsburg Virginia and am very happy to still be able to call this beautiful community home. I love making sure people are properly protected by helping them have the knowledge and understanding of the right policy. When I am not in the office, I enjoy exploring the local flea markets we have in the area, you never know what hidden gem you might find. Something many might not know about me is that I play the drums.

Denise Diaz
Licensed Sales Producer

I grew up in the Caribbean, I am originally from the nation of Belize and I spent most of my life in a small country surrounded by family which has helping me to become the caring person that I am today. My boys and my husband are the most important people in my life and I do everything that I can to protect them. I found that in the insurance industry, I can help others to protect their belongings and family in the same manner. After a year of working in insurance, I have found a home in Wease Financial. I am Licensed in Property and Casualty, I take pride in helping people understand their insurance options and strengthening the understanding of their purchase. My goal is to take care of each client as if they were my family. I am very active in giving back to my community, taking part in 5, 8, and 10Ks monthly with the occasional mud run in between. Anything that gets me moving is on the top of my list.

Clifton A. Dingle
Licensed Sales Producer

I’ve worked as a producer with another company for almost a year prior to coming on board with Wease Financial. I was born in Charleston, SC and raised in a small town north-west of Charleston called Eutawville. I am a trained interrogator. What excites most about being a life and health producer for Wease Financial is that I am able to assist in providing people with an affordable option to protect their families or themselves. In my free time, I really enjoy cooking out and spending time with family and friends. I can’t stop talking about my kids and how smart and talented they are. When I’m not at work, you can either find me relaxing at home with family and friends mostly behind on the grill enjoying a nice cold beverage or you may find me at a nice sports bar during football season watching my Carolina Gamecocks, Washington Redskins, or Carolina Panthers tear some heads off! I think my guilty pleasure would be playing games on my cell phone and enjoying some quiet time. I am an avid football fan and assist my son’s coaching staff with anything they may need to ensure the boy’s have a successful season.
