Licensed in Colorado since 2001, I'm an experienced Health Insurance Broker who enjoys all that Colorado has to offer: hiking, biking, skiing, rollerblading, rafting, boating, ball games…
My professional background includes stints in the offset printing industry during most of the 90’s followed by about a 9-year career in telecommunications, and now working to help my clients work through the maze of options to find affordable health insurance since 2001.
Colorado Back Story
While taking a year off from the University of Wisconsin, I hitchhiked throughout the Rocky Mountain west in 1984, falling in love with the Colorado mountains at age 19.
I remember hitchhiking from my cousin’s house in Denver to Vail on Oct 15th, 1984, the day the Broncos played the Packers in a blizzard on Monday Night Football. Picture me on the side of an interstate 70 entrance ramp, heading west, wearing a 60 lb backpack and with my thumb out.
So I found a bar at the Holiday Inn in Vail to watch the game, which the Broncos won. Then I went out and lay down near the old traffic circle, covered myself with a space blanket and climbed into my sleeping bag. I woke up with six inches of snow on top of me, nearly frozen to death. I walked directly into the Holiday Inn to get a room – $75.
With a degree in hand from the University of Wisconsin, I finally moved to Boulder in 1990. Colorado has evolved quite a bit since then and with each of my hips now replaced, so have I… Great orthopedic care here on the front range. Thank you Dr Peter Lammens!
I still love skiing, hiking, biking and the Colorado sunshine, and my surgeries allow for no restrictions.
