He was very PERSONABLE and very GENUINE in helping me through this process without making me feel uncomfortable or rushed in my decision making. He would make a good 911 operator.

More about Donald

I grew up in Sacramento, California, and also lived eight years in Orange County, California. I moved to Utah 22 years ago and have been very happy here ever since with my family. I have daughters who are 25 and 23 years old, and a 17 year-old son. I am active in my church and enjoy activities with my family and my wife’s extended family, many of whom live locally.

Three words that describe me:

Happy, positive, and driven.

Favorite thing to do when not at work:

Relax with my family at home.

Favorite place to visit and why:

Maui. We have an acquaintance who has a beautiful home on the beach, and we just love the overall beauty of that exotic place. The air feels great; it smells nice; the ocean is breathtaking; and the sound of the ocean is very therapeutic.

What I like most about helping people find the right Medicare plan options:

I can put Medicare in understandable terms very quickly and help people find a plan that they feel comfortable with also in a short amount of time. They are usually delighted and relieved to find the right Medicare plan option.

Other Favorites:

I love college football, and follow BYU quite a bit. I love athleticism, foot speed, strength, endurance, and a combination of all of them. I enjoy being in the highest achievement levels of whatever I do. I love science fiction.
