Tell us about your first day at Schauer Group
I was very nervous—21 years old, no experience at all. Luckily for me everyone was (and still are) very nice, helpful, funny, etc. My nerves went away rather quickly.
Tell us about your best day at Schauer Group
My best day at Schauer Group was when I took over enrollments, terminations, and changes for the Employee Benefits Team, I finally found something I really enjoyed doing. All parts have been great, but that specifically was what I really loved.
What's the most rewarding part of your job?
The subject of insurance was pretty foggy to me, so as I started to understand more about P&C, Life and Health, I discovered my love for helping others learn and understand from the ground up as I did.
If you could time travel, where/when would you go and why?
I would definitely go forward, let’s say 500 years from today, to 2522. I need to see everything that’s going on: cars, food, housing, clothing, music, if Tom Brady is still dominating the NFL, etc.
What's the best piece of advice you've ever received?
Happy wife, happy life.
What's your all-time favorite book and why?
The Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell. It’s about success trends, such as when the majority of hockey players in the NHL were born, the 10,000 hour rule, and much more. A must read if you have not!
