The Academy’s mission is to serve the public and the U.S. actuarial profession. How will your service on the Board allow you to further the Academy’s mission of public policy and professionalism?
My interest in public policy began in college when I led the campus “get out the vote” / voter registration campaigns for several congressional and national elections. In addition, my professional experience working for a state insurance department and for a number of insurance carriers gives me a unique perspective regarding health public policy implications.
After attaining my ASA, I worked with a small carrier to develop and implement their first formal student rotation program, including securing funding for travel to regional and national actuarial meetings, and trainings for students and credentialed actuaries. Currently, I serve as a member of Humana’s Actuarial Professional Qualifications Committee, providing guidance to the 400+ credential actuaries and actuarial students. This includes communication of any changes to standards, training sessions for new / soon-to-be ASAs, and development / internal peer review of all continuing education recordkeeping requirements. Promoting professionalism is one of my top priorities, including exploring opportunities for actuaries share their expertise in public forums. Thank you for the opportunity to serve; it is an honor to be nominated.
