BESSIE ANNE SLOAS FERGUSON started working for Ison Insurance Agency in 2017. She currently has her life and health insurance licenses, which is her area of expertise.

The loss of both of her parents prematurely began her career in life insurance and financial planning. She encourages everyone to evaluate their lives and the lives of those they love.  She also encourages everyone to get a life insurance policy, including children, not because they fear dying, but because they love those that keep living.  We never know the outcome of each day, and she considers life insurance to be the prime financial tool for anyone to have in their arsenal.

Bessie graduated from Elliott County High in 1992 and spent four years travelling abroad.  She moved back to Kentucky officially in 1996.  She has two children, Daniel Hunter and Aspen Johna and is pleased to be working close to home.

In her free time, she enjoys hunting, trapping, and fishing.  She is an avid outdoors woman and loves to hunt deer, turkeys, and grouse.  She also enjoys catching predators such as bobcat and coyote, but she prefers water trapping and loves to catch beaver!
