In this interview series, we profile women who are shaping the future of insurance. By highlighting their achievements and sharing their insights, we aim to have an open dialogue about what carriers, brokers and InsurTechs can do to promote greater gender parity and diversity in the world of insurance and increase the number of women in leadership positions. To kick off this new series, we sat down with Carly Burnham, Co-Founder and CEO of InsNerds.com to talk about building a career in insurance and the importance of finding your own “Why.”
Carly, tell us about your path to insurance. What attracted you to the profession?
Like many, I fell into insurance. In college, I got a part time job at an insurance agency in my hometown. Working in the agency, I learned a lot about coverage and customer service, and I witnessed the impact that having the right coverage had on our clients. It was inspiring to educate customers about their needs and help them understand what they were buying. I have brought this perspective and desire to educate others into all of my roles.
