about us
At Heritage West Title Insurance Agency of Box Elder County, LLC we joke that we have recently come full circle. All our staff members began their careers with Hillam Title Agency, which was later sold to First American Title. Subsequntly, we all rejoined forces at Heritage West Title to recapture the vibrancy and autonomy a small, locally-owned office can provide. In 2008 we had the opportunity to reacquire our former office and happily returned to our former "home" at 11 West Forest Street in Brigham City. Not only did this provide more convenient access for our clients, it also yielded access to more than 60 years of title research that enable us to swiftly and accurately provide title reports to our clients. We relish the opportunity to be part of the Box Elder County community. We all live here and look forward to flourishing together as our county grows and thrives.

Manager, Title/Escrow Officer
I began my title career as a title searcher for Hillam Abstract in Brigham City in 1987 while attending school at Utah State University in Logan. Since then I have done a bit of everything in the title industry, including a stint as the chief deputy recorder for Box Elder County. I’m particularly happy to once again be back in the old Hillam Title offices with access to the files created here over many decades. I honor the heritage of the Hillam family and the other forebearers that have preceded me here. I strive to honor their legacy.

Escrow Officer
I started in this business over 17 years ago. Since that time I have acquired my title and escrow licenses — and 16 grandchildren! My job consists of sitting across the closing table from people who are buying or selling a home or who are refinancing their home loans. I love my job! It is a privilege to help people through what can, at times, be stressful situations. My goal is to provide accurate information about the documents in a comfortable (and hopefully even fun!) setting. I am grateful for the clients who have entrusted their transactions to me through the years.

Title Production Manager
In 1996 I joined Hillam Title Agency as a receptionist. Since then I have become licensed by the State of Utah as a title and escrow officer, but my main duty is to manage the flow of title reports through the office. I also manage the collection escrow accounts for seller carry-back loans and handle customer service requests. When you walk in our door, you will discover, however, that I have yet to give up my receptionist duties as I have always enjoyed talking on the phone!
