I had the wonderful opportunity to grow up in the beautiful city of Rome. After completing my education at Pepperell, I had the chance to explore and travel to various places in the southeast region. It was during my journey that I met my amazing husband, Blue, and together we have been blessed with a loving family. We have a wonderful son named Ty, and three beautiful girls named Haley, Olivia, and Madison. One of the greatest joys in our lives is our granddaughter, Jozie (affectionately known as JoJo).

Recently, we have been working on building our dream home, creating a place where we can make lasting memories together. It was in May 2022 that I joined Brandon's office, and I have been thrilled to be a part of this incredible team. My role involves assisting our valued customers with billing, claims, underwriting, and coverage questions. I find great satisfaction in connecting and engaging with our customers, and I am dedicated to providing them with the utmost support, assistance in any way possible, and I am committed to delivering exceptional service to our customers.

In the picturesque month of October 2023, I embarked on a new chapter, exchanging vows with my husband, Andre. The journey of marriage has been a tapestry of love and shared dreams, making each day richer and more meaningful.

While I've been weaving my own story, my daughter Kayla has been flourishing in her culinary career, a testament to her unwavering passion and determination. Witnessing her chase her dreams has been a source of immense pride. What adds an extra layer of joy is the fact that along her path, she's gifted me with the boundless joy of being a Gigi to five wonderful grandchildren. They are, without a doubt, my entire world, and being a part of their lives is my greatest blessing.

The laughter and chaos that accompany the presence of these little ones are my pride and joy. Their energy fills my days with warmth and purpose, making the title of Gigi my absolute favorite thing in the world.

Professionally, my journey took a turn into the realm of insurance in 2023. There's a deep-seated passion within me to ensure that every customer is not just protected but well-informed about their coverage. Education is the cornerstone, and I strive to empower every person I interact with by providing comprehensive information and tailoring the coverage for their unique needs.

In the symphony of life, the notes of family, marriage, and career harmonize, creating a melody that defines my existence.

Office Representative

As a Rome native, I consider it good fortune to have been born and raised in beloved Floyd County –there is no place on earth I'd rather live!

My roots run deep within this community. As a graduate of Armuchee High School, and two parents as retired educators, I’ve been raised in an environment that encourages positively impacting the community that surrounds you! Both of my parents are Pepperell High School graduates, and we currently reside in the Silver Creek area of Rome. My mother, Pebbles Pace Wheeler, a graduate of Jacksonville State University, contributed 30-plus years of service as a second-grade teacher impacting youth in the Armuchee community. My father, Todd Wheeler, a graduate of The University of Georgia, has dedicated his life to professional athletics and Floyd County athletics and education. With seven seasons being dedicated to Coosa High School as their Head Football Coach. After retirement, he decided to take on a new position in a neighboring state assistant coaching at Cherokee County High School in Centre, AL. My sister, Sarah Beth, is also a graduate of Armuchee High School and is currently pursuing a degree in secondary education from Shorter University. In my free time, I enjoy attending First Baptist Church of Rome, traveling to new locations with my boyfriend Noah, paddle boarding, cheering on the Georgia Bulldogs, & spending quality time with family, friends, and my Chocolate Lab, Bella.

While finishing up my bachelor’s degree in Business Management, with a minor in Logistic and Supply Chain from the University of West Georgia, I wanted to find an opportunity to grow my knowledge and challenge myself to adapt to an environment with newly learned skills and processes, all while making a significant contribution to my community. With a simple connection from a friend in my BBM cohort, my path led to joining Brandon’s office in December of 2023. Even though I’m a newly added addition, I’ve been accepted with open arms by this amazing team! My role involves helping with payments, answering phones, assisting the team, and reminding customers to have a great day not just a good one! Having the opportunity to work in an environment that prides itself on prioritizing its customers and leading to make an influential impact throughout the surrounding community is something that I’ve always sought-after and that’s the true framework of Brandon Burke State Farm.

Hey everyone, I'm a proud graduate of Rome High School and a lifelong resident of Rome, Georgia. After high school, I discovered my passion for real estate and insurance. Managing and improving my rental properties has become a fulfilling endeavor, combining my entrepreneurial spirit with a hands-on approach to property management. It's a dynamic field that keeps me engaged and always learning.

When I'm not immersed in real estate, you'll often find me diving into the virtual worlds of video games, where I find strategic challenges and creative outlets. I also enjoy exploring the great outdoors through hiking trails around Rome and beyond. It's where I find solace and inspiration, connecting with nature and enjoying the beauty of our surroundings.
