In 1972, after 4 years in the Air Force, Larry Miller returned to the warehouse job he had in high school. His father had been in insurance and suggested he try it. He did and found out he really liked helping people this way. After working for his brother, he, and his wife who was also in the insurance industry, decided it was time to strike out on their own. On April 1, 1982, Larry and Beverly Miller founded Anderson/Miller Insurance.
Larry wanted to honor his wife’s family name as well as his own, so it was an easy choice to use both when naming the business. From there they set out to create an agency that catered with honesty and integrity to the needs of those they served.
It made a huge impact on the community, as evidenced by the fact that decades later, families still come in with requests to send their hellos and good wishes to Larry and Beverly.
The couple’s daughter, Kathy grew up happily immersed in the family business. She joined them while still in high school; filing and updating rating manuals. Her love for providing a service that provided protection for people when the bad stuff happens, fed her passion for the industry. In 2015 she purchased the company from her parents and today, as Owner and President, has earned the respect of leaders, insurers, and customers from all walks of life.

"I'm an independent agent who cares about saving you money and who cares about you."
- Larry Miller (Founder)
When a young child watches as her dad leads with integrity, when she hears how much he loves his customers, when she feels kindness emanated from him, how can she not grow up wanting to follow in his footsteps?
And that’s just what Kathy White did. She started working at her parent’s agency as a teenager; something the other kids didn’t really understand. But having been immersed in the industry nearly her entire life has given Kathy invaluable insight into the inner workings of insurance as well as what people and businesses need from it.
Kathy is able to use this superpower to relate to a myriad of individual and business needs, and then provide them with best fit coverage, educating and supporting them along the way, and working hard to save them money.
As you get to know Kathy, you’ll quickly realize you’re being treated like family – which is great because she likes to feed people sweet treats and afternoon coffee!
As a wife, and mother to sons Andrew and Jonathon, as well as a busy contributor to Make a Wish Foundation, the Ronald McDonald house, Cherry Street Mission, The Daughter Project, Covered International, Sylvania Area Family Services, The Pregnancy Center, Toledo Gospel Rescue Mission, and the Cancer Connection of Northwest Ohio, Kathy has learned to live by the family philosophies of “make it simple” and “do the right thing.”
Her faith propels her forward as she works to do right by her clients and sustain the impeccable image her father laid out for the Anderson/Miller Insurance Agency.

Having worked in the insurance industry now for 18 years, it’s hard for some to imagine Fayre Bradshaw's career journey began in a restaurant. Those hard days and long nights just didn’t offer her the work / life balance she needed to be the wife and mother she wanted to be, though, so a career change it was.
She surprised even herself with how much she loved the insurance industry. Helping people understand their coverage to get insured the way they truly needed to be, helped to satisfy her charitable instincts.
Her volunteer work with United Way, Helping Hands of St. Louis, and the Cherry Street Mission as well as supporting organizations like Faithbox, and her family parish, does even more.
Fayre’s passion to truly help others shows through in all she does. Stop by and talk with her about your insurance needs today. You can also get in touch here.
