Tristun Anderson recently joined the BWC team. He is originally from Delta, Utah and has lived here in St. George for the past 3 years. He graduated from Utah Tech with an Associates of Management, with a long-term goal of going into Hospital Administration. Outside of work I love to spend time with family and (most importantly) my wife as well as hunting, fishing, cooking, witting books, and watching sports.
