I am married to Chris Wright and together we have a son, Clay. We live in Burlington where we are also very active in our church and our Youth Group.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have regarding your insurance needs. I look forward to helping you in the future.”

Carla Brewster


You can say I grew up in the insurance business. My family has been involved in the insurance industry from my great-grandfather to myself. I am very proud to be the fourth generation to continue on in the family business.

I started working at Brewster Insurance a few years after earning a B.S. degree from Indiana University. In 1985 I came into the agency to fill in for my grandmother, Nina Brewster, who had been injured in an accident. She then retired and I stayed on as the agency’s receptionist. In 1987 I became a licensed insurance agent and in 1996 purchased my father’s stock in the agency.

Prior to joining Brewster Insurance I worked as a receptionist and bookkeeper. I use that bookkeeping knowledge today in the agency.
