After 21 years working in retail management for a music chain, and having lived on both sides of the United States, Dan switched career paths and entered the insurance industry 20 years ago. He started his insurance career in Omaha, Nebraska, at a brokerage firm, where he earned his insurance license. Dan and his staff have more than 40 years combined travel insurance experience, so they most likely have the answer to any travel insurance question.
Dan has three great kids: oldest son Jake, daughter Abbie, who is a supervisor in the contracting department of Travel Insurance Center's parent company, and youngest son Josh, who was honorably discharged from the Air Force and is currently attending college. In his spare time, Dan enjoys fishing and cooking and won the company's 2007 chili cook-off. One of his favorite spots to fish is Loreto, Baja California, Mexico, and he also has a couple of local spots that will remain a secret. His favorite things to cook are any slow cooker dishes involving beef, pork, chicken, pasta or veggies.
