Account Manager, Inland Marine
4th Brigade 9th Training Division
Army First Lieutenant and Reservist
Maria served as a paralegal for three years of active duty, before transferring to the Army Reserves. She has since been commissioned as an Officer in the Reserves, now serving as a First Lieutenant and Headquarters Company Commander with a military specialty in Human Resources.
Her role includes advising, planning, coordinating and supervising military operations and strategy, ensuring technical and tactical proficiency, readiness, health and welfare, physical fitness, professional development, and morale. All of which makes her well-suited to her role as an Account Manager.
“The experience, skill and resiliency you gain from being in the Army helps you quickly adapt, think critically, and make smart decisions,” states Maria. “I am easily able to deal with stressful situations and overcome challenges and conflict. Plus, the military is very diverse and you learn to embrace diversity and collaborate and work together to accomplish the mission.”
After separating from active duty, Maria took advantage of America’s Corporate Partners mentorship program. She was matched with a mentor who provided information on the opportunities within the insurance industry. “I was aware that Travelers supported the hiring of military,” Maria continues, “but was amazed how much above and beyond the company goes to support their employees that are serving in the Reserves and National Guard.”
She was soon hired for a Claim Operations Specialist position at Travelers, and has since advanced her career with us. Thank you for your service, Maria. We are proud to support your civilian and military goals.
