My dad started with Allstate in 1977, and my mother later became an agent, too â€” so itâ€™s not a stretch to say that insurance is in my blood. We moved to Utah when I was 2, and Iâ€™ve been right here in Sandy City since I was 5. I joined the family business fairly young, starting work right after high school. And even after I went off to do mission work â€” serving in Chile for two years â€” I got right back into it.
I worked for family a few more years, until I took a big leap and started my own agency in 1997, co-locating the business with what was then my motherâ€™s agency (which I bought and folded into my own in 2011). Iâ€™m so proud that my family has served generations of customers â€” three deep in some cases â€” from this same spot across from South Towne Mall for some decades.
