Bill met his wife Marianna in biology class at Antelope Valley Junior College in 1989. He married his beautiful wife on Halloween 1992. Knowing that they were not happy living in the Los Angeles area, they decided to move to the inland Pacific Northwest. They now have Two Daughters and Two sons, a perfect family.
Bill started his career as a stock broker with Waddell & Reed. After 3 years of working many long hours, Bill decided that being a stock broker was too hard in Spokane, so he looked around and decided to start selling auto and home insurance. After a short stint with a local independent broker, Bill decided to start Boyd Financial. In 1996, he brought on a partner, Jim Brown, and they incorporated to Boyd, Brown & Co, Inc. In 1998 Jim decided that he no longer wanted to sell insurance and Bill purchased his partner’s share of the agency. Now, as the sole owner, Bill has grown the agency into a well-respected member of the community.

Hello, I am Anna-Lisa Anderson, born in Lakenheath, England on the military base, where my father served in the Air Force. As a toddler, our family was stationed at Fairchild Air force base in Spokane. Here I was raised on the military base with my four older siblings. I have called Spokane home ever since and raised three children having just one fifteen year old boy left at home. My friends would say I am full of energy and on the weekends like to get dressed up and head out on the town for a night of dancing.
Professionally, I spent several years in retail sales and decided to pursue higher education at the University of Phoenix first earning my Associates of Arts degree, and then pursuing my bachelors’ degree in Human services. I have become a part of the Boyd Insurance Brokerage family and fulfill many roles within the agency. Whether I am answering phones or monitoring your insurance needs, you can be sure at Boyd Insurance you will be treated with the high highest level of integrity and care.
