Charleston Women Summer 2024

27 | | Tired of juggling family life with a career in retail, Greer Narowski went looking for an opportunity. She needed something that would allow her to work around her three-year-old daughter’s schedule, spend more quality time with her family, play at the parks, host potlucks, work on home projects and travel. Fate answered Narowski’s call during a conversation she had with William Voelkel, a past colleague with whom she had remained friends. Voelkel had since moved on from the retail world to a career as a sales and marketing manager, working with Hilton Head Insurance & Brokerage, and the more he talked about the newfound freedom he had discovered in the life he was creating for himself outside of the retail space, the more Narowski realized that it was time for her to make a transition. She yearned to leave the late nights, weekends and holidays behind to tap into her own entrepreneurial spirit. Learning from Voelkel that Hilton Head Insurance & Brokerage was expanding into the Charleston market and opening a new office at exactly the time Narowski was ready to take the leap into a new career, the choice was clear. Narowski, who made her move in December of 2023, said that “it was a very different holiday season than she had ever experienced in retail,” as working with the firm allowed her to dedicate more of that special time to her family. When the company, which started as a small, family-owned and operated business, noticed growth opportunities in Charleston, they were equally thrilled to launch the market here with Narowski. Owner Jeff Hedden added, “There is often a void in the industry for businesses to act in their client’s best interest with the right combination of empathy and strategy.” Enter Narowski: with her extensive background in retail came a high-level of customer service, a skill set that Narowski instantly transferred into her new role. Now, as a licensed insurance provider backed by a combined forty years of Hilton Head Insurance & Brokerage experience, Narowski has found her passion, working hands-on with her clients to ensure that they are protected. Offering custom plans at affordable prices through all the top providers of insurance, Narowski expressed that she can’t imagine any other way but forward. Whether she’s insuring homes, cars, boats, golf carts or commercial interests — or helping clients save on an existing policy — Narowski suggests having a plan in place before disaster happens. With hurricane season lurking, now is the time to think ahead and gauge the next move. Hilton Head Insurance & Brokerage insures coastal areas from Hilton Head, to Bluffton to Charleston, covering damage from rising climate issues such as wind, hail, flooding and hurricanes. Reach out to Narowski sooner than later to discuss the best options and have peace of mind all summer. For more information, please visit, or call 843252-0840.
