Sharon Hansen, LUTCF
My desire to help people is what first brought me into the business of insurance and investments and the personal rewards are what keep me involved.
I began my insurance career in 1980 with Bankers Life and Casualty and in 1981 formed Heritage Financial Group, Inc. and became an independent insurance broker. I am dedicated to assisting my clients in finding the right product for their needs. I will determine what you need, and most importantly what you want, then match you with the product that best fits those needs.
Through the years I have been very active in Skagit Women In Business (SWIB). I sat on the Skagit Women’s Alliance and Network Board (SWAN), two different terms and the last term was holding the fundraising Chair position for 7 years. My late husband, Jim and I went to New Orleans and helped to build a playground through a national organization called KaBoom!. They have a simple philosophy, “No child should grow up without a playground to play on”. I have held many different positions, from President on down, with the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (NAIFA) for my entire career. I am also a member of the Washington and National Association of Health Underwriters (WAHU & NAHU).
I have 5 boys and 6 grandchildren. They all keep me very busy. I am an avid baker and love to cook. I was unexpectedly widowed in the fall of 2015, and I am still learning to navigate through life on my own.
