- What is your background in the insurance industry? Time flies, but I have been in the insurance industry for a little over five years! I entered the industry after living and working in South Korea for four years. I have had the opportunity to work on the industry’s commercial and personal sides. I obtained my property and casualty license within my first year and have since gained several designations to increase further my ability to help our clients. I currently hold the Associate in General Insurance (AINS), Associate in Insurance Services (AIS), and the Certified Insurance Service Representative (CISR) designation. Acquiring these credentials has given me a solid foundation in property and casualty insurance principles and practices, along with helping further my customer service, communication, and problem-solving skills. By obtaining these designations, I have demonstrated my commitment to professional development and excellence in the insurance industry.
- What do you like most about working in the insurance industry? What I enjoy most about working in the insurance industry is the opportunity to help people make a positive difference in their lives. Insurance is not just a product but a service that provides protection, security, and peace of mind to individuals, families, and businesses. I enjoy educating my clients about their insurance needs and options and providing them with solutions that help fit their goals and budget. I also like the variety and challenge of working in the industry, as no two days are the same. I interact with different people, handle different situations, and learn new things daily. It is rewarding to be part of an industry that is constantly evolving and innovating to meet the changing needs of society.
- What made you choose EPB&B as the next step in your career path? I chose Elliott, Powell, Baden & Baker as the next step in my career path because I was impressed by its reputation, values, and community involvement. I saw that this agency supports many local causes and organizations. I value companies that give back to the community, and I’m happy to be part of a team that makes a positive difference in the lives of others.
- Is there anything you’d like to share to let people know more about you? I am originally from New York and have moved around throughout my adulthood. I’ve lived in places such as South Korea, Florida, Texas, and now Oregon. I love to travel; I have been fortunate enough to visit places such as China, Japan, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia, etc. I am also a foodie that enjoys trying dishes at new restaurants. When I’m not doing the above, I enjoy curling up with a good book!
