Julia Crittenden

Julia Crittenden is a licensed insurance agent and Benefits Manager at AscendHR, a PEO proudly owned and operated here in West Virginia. Born and raised in East Tennessee, Julia moved to West Virginia in 2013 and quickly felt at home in the community. Working for a local company and raising a family here, Julia enjoys being engaged in the community, actively participating in local events and volunteering opportunities. Outside of her professional pursuits, Julia’s hobbies extend to painting, live music, and spending time with her 4-year-old daughter, Seneca Mae, and their three cats: Ghost, Boo, and Luna. Recently, Julia had the opportunity to participate in a local art show, showcasing West Virginia artists and benefiting several local non-profits. Now, she’s thrilled to support the United Way of Southern WV through her participation in this year’s Dancing with the Stars.

Brandon Lilly

I was born and raised in Shady Spring, WV and now reside at Flat Top Lake with my wife Amber, my 5 year old son Hayes, and my 4 year old daughter Shay. Amber would like to have one more baby, but so far, my argument of: “The world is made for families of 4”: Restaurants, vehicles, planes, roller coasters, and hotel rooms are working ! Not to mention I will be 42 in November.
I have been in the insurance industry since 2007 and I currently work for Encova Insurance, handling large commercial property and casualty lines.
When I am not working, Amber and I enjoy playing with our kids and traveling anytime we can.
My two favorite hobbies are bowhunting and musky fishing. However, now I love fishing for anything with fins, as my daughter Shay is a fishing fanatic, and we go almost every evening.
My son Hayes loves building Legos, so we do a lot of that at the Lilly Pad as well.
I am looking forward to this event and I am honored to have been chosen for the 2024 Dancing with the Stars. Julia and I are looking to bring that fire! LETS GO!
