My name is John Anthony and I started with Peterson-Anthony in 1992. My grandfather Alfred Peterson founded our agency in 1916, and I am proud to continue his legacy with my dad Darwin and my wife Connie. I love working with personal lines. I most enjoy helping young families, retired individuals, and young adults going off on their own insurance. Many people may not know that I was a biology major in college. I think the analytical way that I had to look at a biology experiment in the lab was good practice for the way I look at insurance policies and customers’ coverage questions. I am a thorough problem solver and a great listener. Outside the office, I love to travel the world and eat great food. I am PetersonAnthony.

Our passion for building long-term relationships with our customers is what has allowed the agency to grow! My talent is organizing and simplifying complex subjects (such as the health insurance market) for our customers in a language that they understand. In this way, we can protect the things that they have worked hard for. Outside of the office, I love traveling to experience new places, people, and great food. I am PetersonAnthony.
