Steven was born in Beckley, West Virginia and moved to Valdese, North Carolina at the age of four. Growing up in a working class family, Steven learned the value of hard work at an early age, which for him, manifested itself in baseball. Steven pitched throughout his childhood and high school, then at Surry Community College before receiving a full scholarship to Florida International University in Miami, Florida. After graduating with a bachelor's degree in Sports Management, Steven signed as a free agent with the Washington Nationals. He continued his career in baseball until 2011 when he moved back to Burke County and met his wife, Jamie. The two were married in 2013 and reside in Lenoir with their two sons, Ty and Andy. In 2013, he began selling insurance and in 2018 opened Stewart & Associates as an independent broker. Steven is an active member of First Baptist Church of Lenoir, Hibriten Masonic Lodge #262, Rotary Club of Lenoir, Downtown Lenoir Development Alliance, and serves on the City of Lenoir’s ABC Board. In his spare time, he enjoys coaching his son’s football, basketball, and baseball teams as well as spending time with friends and family.
It’s no surprise that Andrew, a hard working local native, was voted Best Insurance Agent in Caldwell County in 2021. Born and raised in Lenoir, Andrew graduated from Hibriten High School before attending Appalachian State University. There, he earned a bachelor’s degree in Risk Management and Insurance and has been working in the insurance industry since 2016. He has been employed with Stewart & Associates since April of 2021. Andrew is engaged to Lindsay Barlowe and the two will be married in May of 2022. He enjoys helping Lindsay and her family on their farm, watching and attending sporting events and spending time with friends and family.
Jamie grew up in Lenoir and never really left the town she loves. After graduating from Hibriten High School, she attended Lenoir- Rhyne College and received a bachelor’s degree in Art Education. She taught high school art for sixteen years before making the switch to insurance. Growing up with parents who owned a family business made her want to help Steven at Stewart & Associates. Jamie and Steven were married in 2013 and have two sons, Ty and Andy. Jamie is an active member at First Baptist Church of Lenoir and on the Board of Directors for The Wig Bank. She loves watching her boys in sports, volunteering at their schools, and simply being their Mom
