For the past ten and half years, I’ve been fortunate enough to work with a group of very talented and passionate people. This group of amazing human beings has helped me to grow professionally and personally. For this I say, thank you! Be sure and stick with me and I continue to advocate for a balanced workers’ compensation system that ultimately benefits employers and employees alike.
