From: Captive Insurance Times

Personal Bio: I grew up in Palos Verdes, California, but I’m very excited to move to Atlanta, to begin my career. As a recent graduate from the University of Southern California, I am now working as an underwriter trainee at Beazley. I’m passionate about travelling, meeting new people, and giving back to the community.

Professional Profile: I majored in business administration and minored in risk management at the University of Southern California. Previously, I have interned at Everest Reinsurance Company in New York City and worked part-time at Worldwide Facilities in Los Angeles. Additionally, I was the co-president and co-founder of the Gamma Omicron chapter of Gamma Iota Sigma, a national risk management collegiate fraternity at USC.

As a finalist in the CICA essay contest, how has this helped develop your knowledge of the sector?
Throughout the Captive Insurance Companies Association (CICA) essay contest, I learned so much more about the cannabis industry and the applicability of a captive for an emerging risk.

My teammate, Natalie Kojobabian, and I both researched extensively and read several white documents surrounding these topics. I feel much more experienced and knowledgeable about this sector.
