Employee Benefits Broker
Michael Updegraff graduated from California State University, Chico, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Physiology. While going to school, he worked for a local moving company, rising through the ranks of mover to crew lead in a short period of time. His main focus, besides hard work and determination, is customer service. His can-do attitude revolving around client relationships, created a high referral-based clientele throughout the north state communities.
Michael joined InterWest as an Employee Benefits Broker in April 2019, excited to embark on the challenges of the ever-changing healthcare system. While studying physical sciences, he interned through the Athletic Training Center at Chico State for over a year. Rehabbing collegiate athletes and treating injuries, he quickly realized the importance of quality healthcare and the complications surrounding health insurance. His goal is to create the best solutions for his clients focusing on coverage, compliance and as always, customer service.
Michael resides in Chico, CA with his wife and two dogs. He lives a very active lifestyle and likes to hang out with friends and family.
