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?
The advancement of the actuarial profession has been a primary commitment of mine throughout my career. I believe that actuarial science, as a discipline and in practice, must continue to develop—for the constituents we serve and for the benefit of the next generation of actuarial professionals. My involvement with the Academy, my volunteerism within the actuarial community, my service to clients and my work on the development of new methods such as expected adverse deviation (EAD), have all been focused on that very important goal. It would be my honor to be able to continue that commitment as a member of the Academy’s Board to further its mission for members, the actuarial profession, and the public.
