What role do you play in your organization?
I’m a Surety Client Service Associate at McConkey Insurance & Benefits, and I handle the day-to-day bonding needs of our construction clients, from prequalification letters to Consents of Surety, and everything in between.
Why do you wake up and go to work every day?
The people! McConkey has consistently been a “best place to work in insurance,” and it certainly shows through in the people I work with, as well as our clients. I love taking the deep dive into insurance and construction industry topics, and I especially enjoy seeing the projects we touch come to fruition.
How has your involvement in ABC Keystone provided you value in your professional life?
Since I work on the insurance side of construction, I don’t typically get to see all the details that go into planning and estimating. ABC has provided a fantastic forum for discussion and networking that allows my peers and I to learn about the areas of construction we don’t see on an everyday basis. I feel that with each meeting, I gain knowledge and experience that I can use to better serve my clients.
What are your hobbies?
Anything active! From skiing and snowboarding, to hiking, climbing, paddleboarding, and CrossFit, I love to be outside and moving. I try to do my shopping at York Central Market on weekends and support local businesses in my community. I’m a firm believer that the ‘little things’ in life often add up to be the most important.
