What made you want to work in Underwriting at California Casualty?
I really enjoy serving those in our community that serve the public, and that’s what drew me to begin my career with California Casualty.
Shortly after I started in insurance, I knew that I wanted to move into underwriting. When I saw that a position in underwriting became available at California Casualty, I jumped at the chance to join the team!
What is your favorite part about your job?

Working as an Underwriter gives me the ability to use my mind daily and apply my decision-making abilities to diverse workgroups.
I love my job. I have been given clear goals and expectations to be successful in my position. I have been empowered to take charge of my own professional development and have had management support with my development plan.
What have you learned in your position at California Casualty?
Throughout my career at California Casualty, I have learned so much; everything from risk management, professional written and verbal communication skills, multi-tasking proficiency, to individual accountability, and even company collaboration.
What are your favorite activities to do outside of the office?
I am very family-oriented and spend most of my time with my husband and children.
We love to be outdoors; hiking, camping, and bike riding. However, we also like our down-time to relax and watch movies together.
Anything else you would like the audience to know about you?
I spent my high school years living in Germany and have been fortunate enough to do quite a bit of traveling around America, Europe, and Africa.
My husband is a Firefighter and was one of the first responders involved in both the Waldo Canyon and Black Forest fires here in Colorado.
I am a huge Harry Potter fan and cannot wait until I get to take my kids to Potter World in the future!
