By Orlene O. Arriola, CPCU, CRIS, AINS
I had always been interested in the financial industry, math and science, but after graduating from the University of California San Diego with a degree in management science (economics), I wasn’t too sure exactly what specific career I would take. I was finally hired to work in a small insurance agency here in Guam and realized, not only did I like insurance; I was actually really good and it. It was a natural fit for me. I started working toward the CPCU® when I was completely new to insurance, and it became my mission to try to know as much as I possibly could about the industry.
