Andrew graduated from East Carolina University with a degree in Public Relations. He moved to Chicago and started a career in banking and financial services. After 2008, he transitioned to employee benefits and commercial insurance with a long running private agency. Discovering a passion for the ever evolving world of employee benefits, he moved away from commercial insurance and focused his attention solely on helping employers and their members become better consumers of benefits. He is a strong proponent of engaging, educating and empowering employees so they understand what they are being provided, appreciating the offering and ultimately being comfortable and confident with utilizing their benefits. He has a strong background working with complex midsize and large self-funded groups, helping them better understand what drives claims and how to better control them through analysis and strategy.
A recent return resident of Michigan, Andrew, his wife Jenny and daughter Riley enjoy exploring their new city and all of the wonderful outdoor activities the State has to offer.
