Why did you get started in the Insurance Industry?
I have the opportunity to observe the world in new ways, to find hidden patterns, to make connections between seemingly unrelated phenomena, and to generate solutions.
What is the best part about working at GIS?
We learn from each other, in teams and one-on-one.
What is your favorite part about your community?
The community supports the endeavors of young professionals, entrepreneurs, small businesses, benefits for troubled families and non-profits. They also care about art where a mix of students and professional artists can showcase their talent.
Are you involved in any outside organizations?
Yes, Warriors First Foundation, non-profit organization for Veterans in Northern Indiana.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I spend a lot of my free time with my family and friends. I love the outdoors, camping, the beach, hiking, kayaking, snowboarding and so on.
What’s your favorite quote?
“Enthusiasm is the sparkle in your eyes, the swing in your gait, the grip of your hand and the irresistible surge of will and energy to execute your ideas.” – Henry Ford
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?
If you could take only three items with you to a deserted island, what would they be and why?
Items…can we do people? I would be afraid I would choose the wrong items and I don’t think I would like to be stranded by myself:
· Steve Irwin- he’s brave enough to hunt crocodiles
· Bichon- she fights zombies
· Brett J- he would take me
