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 flexibility and being intentional about where you spend your time. You are no longer required to spend time in the office to be present.
What should the industry do to attract more young people to work in it?
I think the insurance industry historically has focused on promoting and hiring through risk management programs at universities. It’s a great college major, and it generates incredible talent. But it’s also a great career choice for those who are not risk management majors, like myself. I think you can take smart people and train them to work in the industry. You can teach insurance, but it’s much harder to teach the soft skills that strong workers inherently bring to the table.
What is something about you that would surprise people?
In college, I did a very nontraditional study abroad program in Romania and Hungary. It involved living in a Romanian home with cherry farmers and an internship coaching cheerleading for an American football team in Budapest. It was a pretty amazing experience, just by throwing yourself into the culture.
Favorite hobby or pastime?
Cooking. It’s my favorite way to unwind after a long day and a great mental break.
“Baba O’Riley” by The Who. It’s not my everyday listening song, but it plays before every Georgia kickoff and it carries the best memories of cheering on the Bulldogs.
