CCA Member Spotlight
The consulting actuary doesn’t sit on the sidelines. We’re front and center – the movers and shakers – unafraid of using our powers of intellect and charm to advise and conquer. We’re also individuals with countless extraordinary stories to tell. This page will feature the stories of CCA members - who they are and what they do both inside and out of the actuarial world.

My first job out of college was at a healthcare network/utilization review company. The one actuary who worked there encouraged me to take the exams.
The people. The CCA has the best volunteers, staff and folks that attend the meetings.
I love animals. You name it...penguins, moose, turtles, rhino...I love them all.
Tom Terry. I remember when I interviewed with him, he got me to admit that I didn't like "teaching". I thought I bombed that interview. I've been working on "teaching" ever since.
I enjoy working on the Annual Meeting Planning Committee. It's the best way to meet people and make sure the meeting has topics you are interested in!
Northwestern University, Mathematical Methods in the Social Sciences and Economics.
Don't wait for your big break or for things to fall into place. Make your own fortune and push for those opportunities to advance yourself.
Risk isn't going away! Our skills could be applied in so many different ways outside of traditional insurance and employee benefits. The need for actuaries couldn't be greater.
It's not about me and what I know or can do. It's about how the team can use our skills to help the client gain insights and solve a problem.
In my wildest dreams I would be a professional endurance athlete.
Run, spend time with my family and sleep.
I was once caught in a tsunami warning and had to evacuate to higher ground in Honolulu with 2 kids under 5 years old in tow.
