Nicole Anderson began working at Davies Barry Insurance in June 2004 as a Personal Lines Customer Service Representative, quickly becoming an Agent the following February. She graduated from University of Idaho with a Bachelor’s of Science in Elementary Education.  Having decided to take a different career path after graduation, she found herself with a career at Davies Barry Insurance and she hasn’t looked back.  Ketchikan has been home to Nicole since 1982 and she couldn’t imagine a better place to raise her young family. Outside of the daily grind she can often be found with her family and friends, on their boat fishing (but not always catching!). Being a busy mom of 3 she doesn’t always have much spare time, but when she can find a moment to herself she also enjoys reading and learning to quilt. Nicole is a key player to our Personal Lines team. Her dedication, loyalty and experience are just a few of the many qualities that make her an excellent Agent!
