“I have always been deeply encouraged by the goodwill of colleagues and friends in the insurance industry. Over the span of my career, I have witnessed and been a part of the care, compassion, and support for policyholders, insurance agents, communities, and co-workers when life-changing events, such as hurricanes, flooding, or other misfortune occur. Supporting our customers with the best possible service and being there in times of need is at the heart of my passion for our industry.”
