    I have been in the insurance industry for 32 years. 25 years ago, my father-in-law and I combined our businesses to form the Gimlin & Udy Insurance Agency. Although my father-in-law retired in October of 2013, the family element to our agency continues. Co-owner and fellow corporate officer is my wife, Lauri. She handles HR and all of the bookkeeping duties. My daughters Eliza Udy and Jessi Horn work in the business as well.

    I always wanted to be a farmer. My very first job was working for a local farming family. Although the dream of becoming a farmer never materialized for me, I have had the privilege of insuring some of Ventura County's most prominent farmers, including the very same farming family that gave me my first job!
