Douglas.Hershberger@prudential.com

In 1989, two monumental life events took place for Doug. First of all, Doug married his wife, Leasie, with whom he has 5 children, and secondly he began his career in the Financial Services industry. Over the years, Doug has enjoyed guiding his 5 children (Jeremiah, Josiah, Micah, Zachariah, and Lydia) through life, while impressing upon them the importance of honesty, integrity, and responsibility. He has attained the CLU® designation, is a member of the Life Underwriters Training Council and is a lifetime member of the Million Dollar Round Table.

Growing up on his family farm in southern Lancaster County, PA, Doug learned the importance of hard work, responsibility, and family. Aside from his time at the office, Doug enjoys spending time with his wife and children by attending their volleyball, golf, and basketball events. He also has a passion for landscaping, and can often be found working in his yard on a Saturday morning attending to the weeds that may have invaded his flower beds during the previous week, or perhaps he may be sitting on his lawn mower enjoying a beautiful afternoon behind the wheel of his John Deere garden tractor. Moreover, Doug has served his community through his involvement with numerous community groups and organizations. He is currently on the Board of Calvary Church of Lancaster, PA, having served there since 2006.
