Why Insurance?
Some people think I was drawn to the business because my dad worked as an insurance agent. That wasn’t really the case at all.

My adviser at Olivet really helped me get over my indecision. He spent a lot of time with me and other students educating us that there was a place for everyone in insurance. He showed us it wasn’t a boring career like so Why Insurance Admany people think. For me, it’s all about understanding that insurance isn’t just selling. There are jobs in accounting, finance, IT and management, as well as in a variety of specialties. Once I started checking it out, I figured that insurance was the place for me.
