“The insurance industry has limitless possibilities — there’s so much you can do. You’re not limited to one thing you studied in school. I want to be open to other experiences as I think about where I’d like to go in five or ten years. I want to be always in a position to push myself — not to be complacent but do whatever it takes.”
