Claudia Burraston

President & Founder

Claudia Burraston founded Eastern Utah Insurance in 1973 with her husband Jay Burraston. The agency started in a one room office in Vernal, Utah with no clients and one company appointment. Today we service thousands of customers from four locations throughout Utah and other Western States. We’re proud to say that our first client is still a client today. Since our first day, we have always considered our smallest account to be as important as our largest. We remain focused to our commitment to provide customers with the best personal insurance in the industry.
