Starts pretty early around 5AM to squeeze my workout in.
What is the first thing you do when you get in the office?
Grab a cup of coffee if I didn't get an iced on my hour commute.
How do you take your caffeine?
No cream and sugar like a normal person.
What do you like most about your job?
Networking and meeting new people.
What do you like the most about being in the insurance industry?
Constantly being surrounded by people who are individually well seasoned in different areas of the business. You learn something new every day. And contrary to popular belief (insurance gets such a bad rap), you are point blank making a difference in somebody's life - there really is no better feeling than that.
What is your favorite chore?
Growing up on a farm, I had a ton of them... I used to cut the grass in squiggly lines (which made me my dad quite mad) in order to avoid that responsibility... :)
For stress relief you:
Long drives or long workouts combined loud music. Works like a charm.
Not everyone knows I:
Am the vinyl record queen - I collected them before it was "cool". Ask me about my favorite band!
How I ended up in Western Pensylvania:
Born & raised on a beef farm in Somerset County.
Your passions in life:
Mental health and wellness education - your brain is deeply linked to the body and they profoundly shape each other.
If you could do anything at all, what would it be?
Be a keynote speaker... do some TedTalks, that whole thing.
What is your favorite thing to work on?
Any and all habitational risks!
I am addicted to:
"re-discovering" b-side songs from the 60's/70's... like, OH YEA, i remember listening to this with my parents as a kid!!!!
