Mavis Nkansah

I grew up in Accra, Ghana. I migrated to the United States in 1996 and settled in Alexandria VA. I’ve been with Burke & Burke Insurance LLC for 20 years as a licensed agent in Property & Casualty and Life insurance.

I find fulfilment in educating potential and current clients in choosing the right coverage – to protect their assets and what they have worked for their whole lives.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time and singing with my family, and as a fashionista I sing and direct my church choir. I also enjoy baking, cooking, and gardening, and I regularly volunteer with my Church.

I grew up in Northern Virginia and graduated from Westfield High School, and I have been working in the commercial department of Burke & Burke for 5 years.

The most exciting thing about working in commercial insurance is being able to help business owners understand why they need insurance and what kind of policies provide the strongest protection.

When I’m not working, I’m on the golf course! I really enjoy playing golf in my free time, as well as rooting for Washington sports teams.

Brian Heflin

As a native of northern Virginia, I graduated from Fairfax High School and attended Old Dominion University.

I previously worked as an agent with New York Life Insurance Company. I have been with Burke & Burke in the personal lines department for the past 9 years, focusing on property and casualty along with life insurance, annuities, and long-term care.

I get great satisfaction from the peace of mind that I can provide to clients, knowing that they have the correct coverage for their situation.

I have to say I’m a huge Washington Nationals fan and enjoy going to their games. I’m also known to enjoy a good craft beer or bourbon now and then.

In my spare time, you will find me at the gym, on a run, hiking with my wife and our 3 dogs, or possibly perusing a local brewery. As a dog lover, I spend a lot of my time volunteering with Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation, helping dogs find homes.
