My road in life has taken me all over.
I started in the claim organization, working my way up to Claim Line Leader. I was given the opportunity to be a Loaned Executive for United Way, which helped me know I wanted to be in underwriting.
I took a position as a production marketing representative, which took me down the path to learn casualty and large property account underwriting.
My next role was underwriting manager for a small commercial team. I had a great leader who taught me the importance of a diverse team and the importance of developing others.
I left the insurance carrier side of the business and worked for an independent agency managing commercial lines, which was valuable in helping me understand the agency side of the business.
I returned to Travelers to open their business center operations. I had limited operations experience but the other experiences I had gained helped me.
My next role was Regional VP in Personal Insurance where I managed a sales team. Then I transitioned to Regional President of our Northwest region.
I transitioned to our Canadian Home Office as VP of Distribution. I learned the international aspects of the insurance industry and developed a strong sales team.
I am currently the Regional President for our Southern Region; my experiences have been very valuable.

From Family:

"It will be very difficult for you to manage a successful insurance career and to be a good mother. I also heard that I did not attend and graduate from the best university and that will be an impact on my success. "
