Why did you choose to go into the re/insurance
During my internship as a filing clerk at ACE Bermuda, I was
assigned to the directors’ and officers’ liability insurance
department. This was my introduction to the world of
insurance and I was instantly drawn to how diverse the
industry is. Following the completion of my associate’s
degree at Bermuda College, I was given an opportunity to
intern in the IT department at Ariel Re.
I soon saw the different opportunities and roles
available within the industry and experienced first-hand
how technology is a vital and integral part of business
operations. This led me to pursue a career in insurance IT.
