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”.

What’s a lasting effect of the pandemic on the way you work?
The emphasis on digital connection in many ways made my job easier because it meant that we could really give clients what they needed in real time through video conference, or the increased reliance on email and Zoom, and that we could connect even more than we already were.
What’s a problem that needs fixing in your sector?
The insurance world would be better off on the insurer side and the policyholder side if there were more efforts to demystify insurance, to make it simpler both in terms of how the policies are written but also in terms of how the risks to be insured are explained and ultimately underwritten.
What should the industry do to attract more young people to work in it?
If young people understood that insurance is really about empowering businesses and nonprofits and individuals to be able to take chances and to innovate and to be creative, I think they would see the attraction of the industry.
What is something about you that would surprise people?
I have a deep passion for music and for art, for theater, and that’s something I get to explore in my personal life.
Favorite hobby or pastime?
I am a big Chicago White Sox fan. Baseball has always been something that I’ve loved that brings me excitement and joy and, at times, sorrow and heartbreak. When I’m not focused on work in the summertime, you can usually find me at the ballpark.
