CPCU and CPCU Society member since 2016

What do you wish everybody knew about the CPCU Society?
The CPCU Society has so many passionate people! It’s really become a second family to me.

CPCU Society members are passionate about their work. Some call this “geeking out” or being an “insurance nerd.” What have YOU been trying to get better at recently?
I have been focused on learning more about other areas of the industry. I’ve also concentrated on bringing awareness to our local chapter about the different types of careers available in the insurance industry.

Some people think there’s more to life than insurance and risk management. Tell us about something else you’re passionate about.
I am passionate about my faith and my family. Working in an industry where you can genuinely show compassion and caring is a perfect fit for me. The stories around the dinner table help my family see how easy it is to practice servant leadership every day.
