As a Principal in Oliver Wyman Actuarial’s Melville office, Jill helps clients to understand the meaning behind the numbers. She identifies internal and external factors that may impact their specific business and highlights trends evident in their claim history.
Jill knew in high school that she wanted to become an actuary and applied early decision to Bryant University, which offered actuarial math as a major. She went on to consult for Mercer, another Marsh McLennan business, before moving over to Oliver Wyman in the early 2000s. Her primary responsibilities now include serving as the managing consultant for a variety of self-insured clients, public entities, and captive insurance companies. She specializes in providing actuarial consulting services related to various property/casualty insurance lines, including but not limited to workers' compensation, general/products liability, automobile liability, and presumptive benefit liability.
Jill’s advice to new actuaries is to never give up. “I was stuck on Exam 3 for several years and contemplated shifting paths to a new career. I decided to give it one last shot, and for that last attempt only let a handful of people know I was sitting for the exam. Thankfully I was successful and eventually completed all exams to become fully credentialed.”
Away from her desk, Jill takes advantage of warmer months by taking her camper to the beach with her wife and two labs. She holds numerous positions in actuarial organizations, including serving in a leadership position for the Casualty Actuarial Society Examination Committee. She is a Fellow of the Casualty Actuarial Society, a Member of the American Academy of Actuaries, and a Fellow of the Conference of Consulting Actuaries.
