Milestones

My road in life took a while to figure out.
I tossed around career possibilities in my head: teacher, social worker, non-profit development.
I didn’t see them working out long-term. I panicked – what was I going to do?
I took the leap when I was offered a position with a large commercial insurance broker.
I now work for an insurance and risk management staffing firm, and I get to run our college recruiting division!
