BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.
To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.
To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Top industry concern
As the world becomes increasingly automated it is imperative that brokers demonstrate value as trusted advisors and experts in our field. The sheer amount of information people have access to today is staggering. However, we cannot allow this ease of access to information to become a crutch. We have to remember that without a certain level of expertise, trying to sort through and make sense of the information so readily available to our clients may be overwhelming. It is imperative that we as brokers continually develop knowledge that is both broad and deep.
What inspires you?
My dad from the get go! He is in the industry but even if we had ended up in different lines of work, just watching him build a business from scratch is inspiring. I would also say my husband — his work ethic, having someone in your house that is constantly trying to improve themselves and work harder, this is incredibly motivating and keeps you on your game.
Next big thing in insurance
We are seeing conservation branch out from being just what people think of as saving land to all these interesting and different initiatives that they have going on in their industry.
How do you unwind?
I spend time with my family. I live in Loudoun County, and there is a huge agritourism push right now. There are a lot of different small local farms, wineries, breweries and all these things, so my family and I try to support local agritourism.
