I like developing people and helping them get the skills needed to reach their career goals. I also enjoy making the work atmosphere one where employees feel comfortable, engaged and that they have opportunities and can be their authentic self. What I like least about my job is trying to coach people who give me the impression they only want to do the minimum - to just get by - instead of wanting to be their personal best. I didn't really decide on this field but I've been in it for 30 years and have been so happy and blessed. I was introduced to the insurance industry through the one college internship I earned as an auto claims adjuster. It was interesting to take calls, listen to the details of what happened, and then determine next steps. From their I got a job as a fire underwriter (determining if homes, boats, manufactured homes, etc. was eligible for insurance). In those jobs I got to travel for work, train others, develop training materials, lead others, develop others and develop processes. I am so grateful to be in this field. I didn't know Risk Management was the college curriculum for this industry. I majored in business - economics.
