Get to know NCMIC/Professional Solutions, Kathy Everitt:
What gets you out of bed in the morning?
The chance to embrace a new day. I know that sounds corny. However, as a morning person, I look forward to the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences that cross my path each day.
What is your biggest achievement to date -personal or professional?
My two successful daughters; one is a registered nurse and the other a teacher; raising them as a single parent during the most influential period of their lives
What does a typical day look like for you and what are you currently working on?
I love researching information for our staff and insureds. I also love walking; I walk between 4 and 5 miles a day which gives me quiet time to think.
What three words would you use to describe your role?
Advisor, guide, resource
If you could switch jobs with someone, who would it be?
Sorry, I love my job I would not switch.
If you could choose anyone, who would you pick as your mentor?
I have had a “board of directors” for many years and would recommend that for everyone. These folks, a risk manager, an agent and an underwriter, have made me what I am today.
What do you like most about your job?
Getting to work with all the folks I get to work with, sharing the information I learn and meeting new people.
What advice would you give to recent new entrants?
Each experience is an opportunity to learn, listen more than you talk; seek first to understand.
What is your motto or personal mantra?
Seek first to understand
What's your favorite line from a film?
Is this heaven? No, it’s Iowa (from Field of Dreams)
Where is your favorite spot to vacation?
I loved snorkeling in the Dry Tortugas. Nothing is going to match that experience!
