Scott and Sarah Welsh, owners of Welsh Insurance Services, both grew up in Springfield, Illinois and graduated from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale. Sarah graduated Cum Laude with a degree in Biological Sciences, and Scott's degree is in Radio-Television Management. They met in college.
"We have loved Redlands since our first drive through downtown in 1991. We drove all the way east on Citrus into the orange groves and were hooked. We love that Redlands reminds us of a smaller Midwestern city – different than much of southern California. We both spent our early years living here and working in Riverside." Sarah ran a durable medical equipment company, and Scott worked for a major media company with 1200+ radio stations. "We dreamed of living and working in Redlands, so when Sarah began her career as a licensed health insurance agent seven years ago we opened a local office next to the Social Security Administration off Redlands Blvd. Our focus is Medicare supplements, so the location was key. I joined her three years ago."
Scott and Sarah are parents to three awesome kids who keep them very busy! One at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo (Paige), one at REV H.S.(Hope), and one in 7th grade at Sacred Heart Academy (Finn). Sarah was a long time Girl Scout leader, and now volunteers time to help people with special needs. In their spare time, they love supporting local restaurants and pubs!

Scott has been involved as a volunteer Marketing/Media Director with the Redlands Bicycle Classic since 2006. He loves spending time on his bike with the local clubs and supporting the growth of cycling at every level. "I am a Director on the board of Redlands Chamber of Commerce, and love spending time with other business owners in town. I also referee at Redlands AYSO and we enjoy watching our son play on the Redlands Extra team."
Scott's grandfather Fred Bierbaum was a great influence on him. "He was a great example of faith, fortitude, and family." Sarah’s greatest influence was her mother Helen. "She was a brilliant person with tremendous resilience and character."
