Let’s get to learn Hillary!
What made you want to work in Underwriting at California Casualty?
I became interested in Underwriting as soon as I started with California Casualty as a Customer Service Representative. I just think that risk analysis and risk management are very interesting topics!
What is your favorite part about your job?
I have the privilege of being a team manager to a fabulous group of people, including Underwriting Service Representatives and Underwriting Assistants. They all work so hard to produce quality work that supports our customers as well as other departments within the company.
I also get to work side-by-side with great CalCas leaders. Seeing their efforts is very inspiring to me. It’s also very fulfilling to be a part of changes that affect the company positively.
I love my job! I love working for a company that always does its best for its customers and for its employees. In some ways (that are good!) working for California Casualty feels like working with family.
I’m given the opportunity to do what I do best every single day.
What have you learned in your position at California Casualty?
What haven’t I learned at California Casualty?! Everything I know about the insurance industry, I’ve learned from my different positions here.
In addition to learning on the job, I have also had the opportunity to advance my education through secular classes. I have obtained 3 insurance designations so far, and keep working toward more knowledge.
What are your favorite activities to do outside of the office?
I enjoy long walks in the mountains and spending time with friends and family.
Anything else you would like the audience to know about you?
I have two cats and one cat-sized dog.
I like to cook and to bake, and have recently tried to master the art of making the perfect cupcake. While I have not been very successful in my cupcake-related endeavors, I am not giving up!
I also enjoy cross-stitching little gifts to give to my friends. 🙂
