Where would you be if you didn’t work in insurance?
As a child my dream was to be a veterinarian but I was devastated to find out I have severe allergies to cats and horses, so that career path was quickly ruled out. Whilst in high school I was aiming to study Law, instead found my way to the wonderful world of insurance and haven’t looked back since.
