Agent

Anne came to the USA from Cardiff, South Wales, England in 1973 with her husband and 2 children, a boy and a girl who were 4 and 6 at the time. He worked for BP and was transferred here to Anchorage. Anne joined the insurance industry in 1980- joining a local, independent agency as an assistant to the longtime, experienced agent. He handled the Property/Marine section of the agency's Lloyds of London contract, thereby giving Anne experience in working with the canneries of Kodiak and the many commercial fishing vessels that use Kodiak as their home base. It was her job to rate, assemble and issue the policies and then file and pay the surplus lines tax reports. She had no idea at the time what an exposure she had been given to work with. 
Anne worked on the Commercial side of the insurance business for 10 years before purchasing her own agency, thereby entering the Personal lines business side. 
Anne joined Associated Insurance in 2007 as a Producer with both Commercial and Personal clients. 
Anne is now the proud grandmother of 5 boys, "a hockey line", 3 from her daughter and 2 from her son. All still in live in Anchorage and spend holidays together on their amazing vacations- to Mexico last year and Europe this year. 
Stop by and say hello to Anne. She is here in the agency every day and would love to talk to you about your insurance needs.
