Meet Our Team

Ron Venters


I elected to retire after spending 39 years as a PING Golf representative. In a very short period of time, I realized I was only happy with daily interaction with people. My wife, Eve Black-Venters, invited me to join her insurance agency. I am entering my third year as a certified Health Insurance Agent. I feel incredibly blessed to be part of this agency and the many wonderful people I’ve been able to assist with their insurance needs.

Eve Venters, CSA


I started working in the insurance industry in 1983. My love and dedication to helping people have allowed me to grow this business from the ground up. I am a Certified Senior Advisor and a member of the Blue Cross Blue Shield Medicare Advisory council since January 2022. I have proudly served Sampson, Duplin, and surrounding counties for the past 40 years.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you with any and all of your insurance needs!

Ashley Honeycutt


I was born and raised in Sampson County, NC. After highschool, I graduated from East Carolina University with a Bachelor of Science in Sociology and a concentration in Marriage and the Family in 2007. It was a few years later that I decided to further my degree and once again attended East Carolina University, where I graduated with a Master of Social Work with a concentration in Substance Abuse in 2012. I have had several positions as a social worker in Duplin, Sampson and Wayne counties since 2007, most recently Sampson County for the last 9 years. I am excited to take on a new adventure, as I recently became an insurance agent with Eve Black and Associates, Inc. I look forward to meeting you and will be glad to help you with all of your insurance needs.

Chandler Venters


Upon graduating from Harrells Christian Academy in 2018, I pursued my undergraduate degree in Business Administration from Cape Fear Community College. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit in 2020, I saw this as an opportunity to find my true calling. I started working under this agency in late 2020. After obtaining my insurance license, I became a certified Health Insurance Agent. A fun fact about me is that hunting is my passion outside of insurance. I am a thorough advocate of conservation and the appreciation of the outdoors.

I look forward to helping you find the best health insurance plan to meet your needs.

Lillie Moran


I graduated from the University of North Carolina Wilmington Cameron School of Business. After graduating in December 2021, I pursued a career in the Banking Industry. Working within the SBA field, my calling was more towards helping those daily with a face-to-face touch. I left my job and joined the Black & Associates team in July 2022. Since then, I have loved working with the staff to learn the ins and outs of the insurance industry.

I look forward to meeting you and helping to personalize your health insurance needs!

Gail Tyndall


I retired after 48 years as a registered nurse and decided to work with Eve as her receptionist. As it turns out, comprehensive health insurance resonates very close to home for me, individually & professionally.

Like all facets of healthcare, it can be a maze to maneuver. Eve & each of her agents are about ensuring ALL our clients have the best and most personalized plans to meet their needs. BTW, Eve is MY agent too. I would love to hear from you.
