CCA Member Spotlight

 

“Written in the Stars: The Common Denominator for Society’s Greatest Achievements”

Life can often seem to be a series of random, chaotic events and in some respects it is. However, when we step back and examine it from afar, there remains a constant current of order that runs through it – a method to the madness. After all, within all that chaos there exists the universe and mathematics – which are two of New York City Office of the Actuary’s Chief Actuary favorite things…and with good reason.  

We invite you to take a moment to get to know this incredibly astute actuarial leader, CCA member, champion of the CCA Women in Consulting Community, and all-around delightful person: Sherry S. Chan!
