There are many citizens of Winston Salem who have benefited from the services offered at her place of business, the Mose’ Belton-Perry Insurance Agency. She treats all of her clients like members of her family and has been committed to providing them all with the best service possible for 25 years. Yet, her focus remains on assisting individuals in her community with personal growth and development.

Perry credits her mother Odessa C. Belton, grandmother Maybell Belton and aunt Rosa Belton Walker with instilling into her the values of setting goals and working to accomplish them. She says they told her that she could be or do what her mind’s eye saw and that nothing was too hard to try because she could not succeed what she did not try.

After graduating from Atkins High School, Winston Salem native Mose’ Belton-Perry attended Winston Salem State University and later obtained a bachelor’s degree in History and Political Science. She then navigated east on I-40 and received her masters of Education from North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro. She then furthered her educational studies at both UNC-Greensboro and UNC-Chapel Hill. After all of her schooling, she began her plight to give back and taught History in the Winston Salem/Forsyth County Schools for 12 years.

As impacting of a career as a educator can appear, Perry says she decided to sell insurance becuase she felt that she could do more as an agent to help people. “By treating them as a person and not a number,” Perry says is how she connects with her clients. “I love helping people and providing them with the best insurance coverage that I have to offer.”
This connection allows her to operate an agency of which she knows everyone by name and face. She calls this a hands on approach and has often accepted payments from her clients away from the office including at the mall, at church, during meetings, and while in traffic.

Her involvement in her community includes working with the Winston Salem Board of Visitors, WS Sustainablility Committee, Forsyth County American Business Women Association, WSSU National Alumni Association, and the WSSU Kimberly Park Alumni Chapter. Throughout her office, the color of red in prevalant. This is because Perry is a proud member of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorotity, Inc and a WSSU Ram.

Just as her mother, the late Odessa C. Belton encouraged her, Perry also does the same for her own daughter, Montrice, and everyone she comes in contact with. Currently she speaks to youth within the public school system in Forsyth County during career days and individual classroom visits. “I instruct advise them not to pigeon hole their careers but go into fields where African Americans have not gone before,” says Perry. “I would also like to open up a couple of additional insurance locations to give other females an opportunity to excel.” “Reach for the sky and put God first,” she says is advice that she applied and since carried her all of her life. “Owning and operating a business is very challenging but if you work long and hard, you will eventually achieve your goals!”
