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”.

HOW DID YOU GET INTO THE INDUSTRY: "I actually chose this as a major in college. I received my risk management and insurance bachelor's from the University of Georgia, and then I went on to get a master's in corporate banking and finance (from Golden Gate University in San Francisco). (Initially) I was a general business major and I took an insurance course as an elective. I had wanted to go to law school, but when I took that course I found it was a marriage between legal issues as well as financing, so for me it was kind of a perfect fit."
