In this issue we’re featuring a few of your colleagues who were instrumental during the recent catastrophe events.  Check out who's featured...

Lauren Farrell

Lauren is the U.S. Catastrophe Modeling Manager for PCG and Lexington Personal Lines.  She began her career with AIG in 2010 shortly after graduating from the College of the Holy Cross.  She started as a Catastrophe Modeling Analyst with the Enterprise Risk Management Group before moving to Private Client Group in 2012. When not at work, Lauren can be found enjoying life in New York City, or relaxing with family and friends on Long Island.   

If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time? 

If I still knew what sleep was, I would probably sleep anyway, because I love sleeping.  Otherwise, I would travel more—not needing sleep would mean no jet lag! 

Jay McCarrell III

Jay began his AIG career as a Wildfire Mitigation Specialist in 2015. He has spent eight years in the wildland field and holds numerous state and federal fire certifications, including a California state fire marshal Firefighter I & II certification. Previously, Jay worked for the United States Forest Service on a hotshot crew and an engine as a Wildland Firefighter. During his free time, Jay enjoys going to the gym, taking his dog on hikes/runs and shooting archery.

If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time? 

I never have enough time to work on my house, so I’d probably be working toward finishing the 100 separate projects that I have going on all at once. Then I’d be venturing into the mountains to explore new terrain and landscape.

Lynn Rickert

After attending nursing school, Lynn began a career as a paramedic for an ambulance company and emergency room. She was introduced to insurance through her father’s life insurance agency, and began working in the industry in 1972. Since then, Lynn has worked for several other agencies before coming to PCG in 2013 where she is now an Auto Claims Analyst. She is full of pride for her five children and one grandchild, and has a long-standing passion for Porsches.

If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time? 

I would play tennis in a midnight league a few nights a week and read that big pile of books I cannot seem to get to on the other nights.
