What made you want to be a Learning Instructor California Casualty?
I love teaching; it’s my passion and I’ve been in the Insurance Industry for the majority of my working career. So, having the opportunity to work in all facets, personal lines, commercial lines, sales, service, underwriting, and claims, I get the best of both worlds.
Over the years, I have come to know and respect the values CalCas represents. I love my job and my current capacity to help others be successful in their insurance careers!
What is your favorite part about your job?
My favorite part of being a learning instructor is getting to work with all departments and interact with individuals within many different areas of the company. Being an instructor, my primary focus is helping prepare new hires for their new careers with CalCas, but another fun part of my job is having the opportunity to work on projects and company implementations that involve both existing and new staff.
I love it when the light bulbs go on and you can see the excitement of learning in others!
Seeing employees that I have trained grow and become successful, and knowing that I had a hand in helping make that happen, is the greatest reward.
What are your favorite activities to do outside of the office?
Traveling and learning new things! Hiking, swimming, reading, shopping and Gabby Gourmet are also on the list.
My dream job would be to become a famous restaurant reviewer and then relax by going to see all of the great movie premieres!
Anything else you would like the audience to know about you?
I was born in Iowa, grew up in Florida and moved with my husband (from North Carolina) to 5 different states and 8 different homes! All in 30 plus years of marriage.
We have 2 grown daughters with 5 grandkids in 5 different states, so we’re a family that likes to move around a lot!

David Williams can now point to almost any place on the globe and head there for a new experience.
David was the lucky person chosen from thousands of entries in the “Win Half-A-Million Miles” Sweepstakes from California Casualty. David, who promised his daughter a European vacation as a graduation trip, will now be able to take his entire family!
With 500,000 miles, David hints the trip to Europe will be just the beginning. “This opens up the world to us for new adventures,” he said.
One of those adventures maybe a trip to Cambodia, Thailand, and other exciting parts of Southeast Asia.
“We will be very judicious with the mileage. We appreciate the opportunity this will afford us and we are thankful for the chance to do things that we might not have been able to do before,” he added.
David, who has been traveling to China for business for the past 30 years, appreciates United Airlines and is a dedicated United MileagePlus member. “I’m an anxious flyer, but United makes the experience much more enjoyable,” he said.
California Casualty offers customers who purchase auto and home/renters insurance United MileagePlus miles. Now the most rewarding airline loyalty program allows members to qualify for first-class service with special benefits from California Casualty:
- Great rates
- Free ID defense
- $500 coverage for non-electronic personal property stolen from your vehicle
- $0 deductible for accidents with a rental car
- Affordable towing and roadside assistance
- $1,000 pet injury coverage
- Skip payment options
California Casualty is inviting United MileagePlus members to buckle in for another chance to win a half-a-million miles in 2020. With 4,400 daily flights to more than 300 cities across five continents, the options for half-a-million miles are endless: a trip to Paris, a Tahiti getaway, sampling dim sum in Hong Kong, touring the sights of Rio de Janeiro or visiting the Vatican in Rome. The sky’s the limit.
David recommends that all United MileagePlus members enter because, until this contest, he had never won anything before. “I’m proof that anyone can win and I’ll be entering more contests and offers like this in the future,” he said.
