YoungPros Spotlight: Meet David White

David MD White

David MD White

Age: 38

What do you do in Salem: Provide custom commercial insurance options for clients who understand the importance of having the right coverage. I also provide assistance to many of the captive agencies here in Oregon, who have very limited options for their clients.

What do you do when you’re not working: I spend most of my time with my two year old mischief maker (my son) going to the Kroc Center to swim or taking him out to the disc golf course so I can sneak in a round of golf.

Why do you choose to live and work in the Mid-Valley: Well, its a heck of a lot better than being in Kansas, no tornadoes, no 90 degree days with 100% humidity and we have hills and real trees here.

Favorite Mid-Valley secret: I can’t tell you or it wouldn’t be a secret.

Which Salem leader would you like to have lunch with? Nick Williams (done)

What would people be surprised to learn about you? I drove farm machinery & semi trucks from the ages of 7-11 at various farm shows to show how easy it was to operate. I was paid in ice cream.

What were you like at 12 years old? Obnoxious, wild and out of control.

Dog or cat? Dogs

What’s your smartphone? Whatever is on sale on Amazon.

Favorite social media platform: Facebook

Mac or Windows? Windows
