Tell us about yourself as a professional. Do you have a special interest or area of expertise, unusual background or experience, or a topic or skill you’re working to get better at?
After graduating summa cum laude with University Honors from Saint Joseph’s University’s Maguire Academy of Insurance and Risk Management in 2022, I matriculated to Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law.  I am now a second-year law student at Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law.  In March 2023, at the age of twenty-three, I earned the Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) designation.  Also in March 2023, I began my tenure at Stickley Law, LLC, a boutique insurance defense firm that specializes in fighting fraud.  I believe that the CPCU designation has given me (1) a high-level, strategic understanding of how claims and litigation fit into the bigger insurance picture, which many of my colleagues do not have; and (2) the ability to make a difference by providing timely and thought-provoking advice to clients on a consistent basis through status reports and coverage opinion letters.  Ultimately, my goal is to become the best, and most highly sought-after, Gen Z insurance defense and coverage attorney in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.


Why are you passionate about working in insurance and/or risk management?

As a Law Clerk at Stickley Law, LLC, I have the privilege of being on the front lines in the battle against insurance fraud.  I find tremendous satisfaction in analyzing the value of claims with deep skepticism and investigating suspicious activities.  The work I do at Stickley Law, LLC, pursuing truth and justice, preserves the integrity of the insurance industry and makes the insurance industry fairer and more equitable.

Tell us about something you enjoy outside of work, a cause you support, a hobby, family activity, or anything else that is important to you.

Outside of school and work, I enjoy spending time with my parents, grandparents, girlfriend, and close friends.  My girlfriend and I share an adorable mini-labradoodle puppy named Polly, who has been a blessing in our lives.


In your opinion, what’s the best thing about being a CPCU Society member?
In my opinion, the best thing about being a CPCU Society member is the networking. Membership to the CPCU Society provides you with access to a vast network of high-achieving and intellectually competent insurance professionals.  This access is invaluable for career growth; making connections, both in-person and on LinkedIn; and staying updated on industry trends.
