How did you hear about McCollum Insurance?
I heard about McCollum Insurance through Erie Insurance’s internship program
Why did you want to intern at McCollum Insurance?
Since I am an Actuarial Science major at Saint Joseph’s University, I will learn how to analyze statistics, measure risk, and price insurance. However, after taking a Risk Management & Insurance course during my freshman year, I wanted to learn more about the other side of insurance.
What are you hoping to accomplish while interning at McCollum Insurance?
I hope to gain a better understanding as to what insurance companies/agencies do on a daily basis and how they interact with their clients.
Where are you going to school, what are you studying, and what is your expected graduation date?
I attend Saint Joseph’s University, expected to graduate May 2022.
I am an Actuarial Science major with a minor in Mathematics, considering Economics or Decision & Systems Sciences minor as well.
Where did you grow up?
Plymouth Meeting, PA
Where is your favorite vacation spot?
San Jose, California
What do you find interesting about insurance?
I find it interesting how the majority of the population have insurance but not many people appreciate/comprehend its importance in society. I feel like most people consider insurance as another bill to pay, yet when they go to report a claim, they are thankful they have insurance in place.
