Best advice you’ve been given
I have been fortunate to have some great mentors and coaches. I think of things like pick your battles, dress for the job you want and always tell the truth.
Best-kept secret about insurance
The career path. When kids are in school thinking about what they want to be, I don’t think the insurance industry comes to mind. I have found the industry to have such a multitude of career-path options. The opportunity is the bestkept secret.
Next big thing in insurance
What I love about our industry is that while the basic blocking and tackling is always going to be the same, the innovation we are charged with is more present than ever. I am excited to see us jump into new industries and new solutions.
How do you unwind?
Doing some sort of right-brain activity like painting or crafting.
Hobbies and interests
I love to travel and see new places. But when I am not on the road, casual dinners at home feeding family and friends would be at the top of my list.
