Testimonial

What is Susan thinking about when she steps onto the ice and starts building momentum on tiny blades that propel her across the rink? We know it's not the insurance plans and risk assessments she worked on during the day and she leaves those behind with each strong glide. Figure skating is her passion, and it parallels her work as an actuary analyst: the smallest miscalculation can lead to painful consequences. Susan's Story
