As a youth growing up in the household of a Sandy, Utah insurance agent, I never imagined that I would also want to be an insurance agent. I watched my father work long dedicated hours for his clients but at the same time, he was always there to teach us valuable lessons and how to work. Now that I have been an insurance agent for more than 25 years, I realize that the thing that I enjoy most about my job is being able to help others protect their families and businesses. As a youth, my father listened to a lot of motivational speakers and perhaps that is where I get my bounce-back motivation, not a whole lot will get me down for too long. I distinctly remember one of Zig Ziglar's famous sayings: "You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help enough other people get what they want." The great thing about insurance is that we get to help people insure their new homes, cars, businesses and in the end, their financial well-being. This attitude resonates with all of the employees at Anderson Insurance Group. We truly enjoy helping you with your insurance coverage and will strive to help provide the best coverage available.
I grew up in Sandy, Utah in the home where my parents still live. I attended Alta High School graduating in the class of 1985. I attended BYU and later graduated from the University of Utah with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Interpersonal Communications.
I ride my bike almost every day. I love living in Draper where I am close to the Corner Canyon mountain biking trails and whether it is winter or summer, you will probably find me there on my mountain bike or fat bike enjoying the trails. I have also organized and supervised over thirty Eagle Scout trail projects to help build trails in Corner Canyon as my way of giving back to a place that I love so much.
I also love to travel and see the world with my wife Angie and my children. We have been to many interesting places and I think travel is a great way to appreciate people from all cultures.
I served a mission for the LDS church in Costa Rica and Panama. There I learned to love the people and the different cultures. Today, we serve our Hispanic clients in their language from every country in Central America, from Mexico all the way to Chile. En Anderson Insurance Group, somos muchos que hablamos su idioma y llogramos ser lo mejor agencia para los Hispanos aqui in Utah.
I currently live in Draper, Utah with my wife of 26 years. Our first daughter, Ashley, is married to Brennan Gregory who is my partner in the business but more importantly, a great son-in-law. Brennan and Ashley live in Riverton and Ashley teaches Pilates in her own studio. Our second daughter, Ari, currently is attending college with ambitions to work as a counselor. We enjoy Utah and are active members of our community.
I hope you feel our passion for our business and for the hard work and effort all of us at Anderson Insurance Group make to assure that you are well protected by your insurance coverage.
