I’m originally from Huntsville, Alabama, and I joined the U.S. Air Force where I worked for four years in Security Forces (Military Police). In 2013, I went to college with the assistance of the GI bill and studied business. Through my fraternity in college, I made a contact who worked at Willis Towers Watson as a client service associate in the reinsurance area. When he was moved to a different role within the company in another city, he thought I would be a good fit for his job and he referred me to the company.
While I didn’t have any experience in insurance, my experience in the military taught me how to follow direction and learn, show respect for superiors and the importance of team building, comradery and networking — all transferable skills that are relevant to my current role.
