My road in life took a while to figure out.
I made a decision to go to law school, primarily as a means to be successful later in politics.
Having been a successful student in college, law school was difficult. I found that I needed to apply myself harder in order to graduate.
During my first year of law practice, I averaged 60+ hours a week, in work that was not very rewarding - which led me to accept an interview with an insurance company.
Within just a few years of working for an insurance company in CT, I was being given more and more responsibility, ultimately creating new products and gaining a national reputation.
When my employer was acquired by another insurance company, I chose to leave that new organization and find my new and current home at Travelers.
Over the past 20 years I've worked with some amazing people, created new products, worked through mergers and acquisitions, and helped build an industry-leading business.

Working with Others

Day to Day

As a manager of people, and a segment of the company's insurance business, my day typically involves meetings with various members of the team. Some will be 1:1, others will be on topics requiring multiple participants. I coach employees, speak with brokers and customers, review deals and contracts, and often travel to visit local offices and business partners.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for everyone

Get to know some people in your chosen field of work. Ask questions. Learn about the core of what they do, and what they think would be good initial steps. Learn about different parts of the insurance world - insurer, agent, broker, reinsurer, etc. Companies in these different areas might be more appealing to you than the others.
