What made you want to work as an Insurance Consultant at California Casualty?
I was exhausted from working in the HVAC industry, so I thought I would try my hand in the insurance business here at CalCas.
What is your favorite part about your job?
I have awesome co-workers and management!
I also like that I get to do the majority of my work remotely from home with my family.
I get to work with some very creative and helpful people. The work environment is extremely welcoming- even if I’m having a bad day my job still rocks!
What have you learned in your position at California Casualty?
I have learned the true reality of the sacrifices that public safety employees and educators/support staff make for their communities. Most of the time it’s a thankless job, but I get the opportunity to express our gratitude.
What are your favorite activities to do outside of the office?
Going on family bike rides and walks with our two dogs.
Spending quality time with my 5 and 9-year-old children.
Exploring interesting things to do in our local community.
Anything else you would like the audience to know about you?
I once met the Nature Boy, Rick Flair, in Tulsa, OK and got his autograph! WOOOOO! (only real fans know)
I’m extremely interested in anthropology and am fascinated by the idea of human origins.
I enjoy watching UFC.
I’m Midwest, born and raised, but I cannot stand to listen to Country music. I ’m a fan of ’80s, ’90s, and 2000’s Rock and Alternative.
I would love to visit Stonehenge, The Pyramids, and Machu Picchu
