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”.

EARLY Aspirations: "No one plans to be in the insurance industry. My degree in college is in biology. I was going to be a veterinarian or a biologist. I am a tree-hugger to the core. My husband, whose father was in the business, pushed me into this and I love it. He knew I'd be good at it."
