Meet Our Team

Michael J McDyer
Agency Principal

I have been licensed in property & casualty, life, and health since 1991. I have worked in the industry for over 26 years and have owned my own agency for 17 years. I am a second-generation agent and have successfully grown my business to three agencies over my 17-year career. I continue to build a strong team of licensed insurance professionals to grow my business, serve our customers and help protect their needs today and into their future.
I grew up on the west side of Cherry Hill, NJ and went to grade school at St. Peter Celestine (now called Resurrection). I went to St Joe’s Prep high school and then went on to St Joseph’s University where I graduated in 1993. I moved to Medford NJ in 2001 when I bought my first agency and have lived here since. I am married to my wife Susan of 15 years. We have three children who attend St. Mary of the Lakes school. We are all very active in our school, parish and Medford Youth sports.

I am proud to be an insurance agent and business owner which gives me the ability to help so many residents in the Medford and Cherry Hill area with their insurance needs.Being a business owner also helps me be very active in youth sports sponsorships where my kids are very active. I love Philly Sports, most especially the Eagles and Sixers. I love taking my boys to games and watching them develop in youth sports as well.  My wife and I are constantly running around from game to game for our boys who are very active at St Mary’s and Medford Recreational sports. I also coach one of my son’s basketball team at St Mary’s and his Rec team.  I have played the drums since I was 13 yrs. old. I love listening to music and jamming out whenever I get a chance (which isn’t too often these days, but I get it in!). I also love to golf and belong to Medford Village CC for the last 10 years. I enjoy my summers in Avalon NJ and love chilling on the beach with my family.  For over 20 years every Christmas season along with few other local agents, we raise money to buy about 200 bikes and deliver to the US Marines through the Toys for Tots Foundation. We call it Mike’s Bikes because we are all named Mike.  The bike drive is a very rewarding thing to do for me and helps my kids understand the importance of giving back.

I have been in the insurance industry for 14 years with the McDyer Insurance Agency. I grew up in Clayton NJ. My college degree was in TV, Radio & Film. I freelanced for some time working with NFL Films and ESPN before making a passionate switch to insurance. Helping our clients to protect what is most important to them brings me great satisfaction.
My family is what brings me such joy, I cherish every moment with them. When I am searching for a little time outdoors you can typically find me, riding my horse, going to the shore or just floating in my pool when the weather is right of course. I also love researching my family’s genealogy and taking photos of the NJ Pinelands. I belong to various historic societies in my beloved New Jersey.

I grew up primarily in Cherry Hill and have been blessed to have settled with my husband and daughter in the Medford area. I am most excited to help educate my clients on the benefits, costs, and options available to them with life insurance, and remove some of the rampant stigmas and misinformation that is out there. Helping a client prepare properly for their family’s financial wellbeing now and in the future, it is an amazing feeling.
I love raising my daughter and watching her blossom into the strong, independent young person she has become. I cherish the time and memories I have with my family and friends. You could say I have a little guilty pleasure, it’s to binge watching TV shows I love talent shows. I am passionate about educating the public about planning for their and their families’ futures.  This industry is the perfect platform and I intend to execute a year-round educational workshop series with the McDyer Insurance Agency starting this year.

Felicia Patterson
Licensed Insurance Representative  

I have had experience in the insurance industry for many years, starting out with pharmaceutical insurance processing on a retail level and then in the healthcare industry with customer service, policy reviews and maintenance.  It was a natural transition to property and casualty insurance customer service and maintenance, attaining my New Jersey license in 2016.  My focus has always been informing the client about their policy and providing expert advice to maintain the most appropriate coverages based on the individuals budget and insurance requirements. I grew up in Northeast Philadelphia receiving my BS from Drexel University. I have continued my education with certification classes in the Pharmaceutical, Healthcare and Property and Casualty insurance industries. I am excited to help educate customers on the details in their policy and to protect them from the unexpected situations that can occur in their lives.  Insurance terminology can be complicated and confusing I make sure to help all our clients at the McDyer Insurance Agency feel that they can come to us with any questions should they arise.  It gives me great satisfaction to know that I am helping my customers to understand what coverages they have and the impact of those coverages on their insurance policies.
My out of work passion is golf, I have taken many lessons and played in many leagues.  I like to get into a little competition with myself and to try each time I play to improve my skills, I also enjoy the time spent outside at the golf course.  My family is a topic that I can’t stop talking about. My husband and I have 3 wonderful children that have made us so proud over the years. I like to go to the beach on the weekends, spending time in the water and sitting and talking with friends. When I was a young girl my mother taught me how to sew.  I like to sew because you can see the results of your work instantly and even though a seam may not be exactly even you can feel good about the fact that you made it.  I have been involved in my children’s school activities and supporting the school through donating my time and talents.  My last is a senior in high school so I have decided that I will offer my time to my local animal shelter.
