Team Spotlight: Amber Giuliano
Learn a little bit about Amber Giuliano, Beacon Hill’s Production Assistant
Please tell us about your family, interests, and hobbies.
I grew up in Jacksonville, NC with my six younger siblings. The majority of our time was spent attending each other’s sporting events, from softball games to soccer tournaments. There was never a dull moment in my house! After high school, I attended two state universities; University of North Carolina at Pembroke and Appalachian State University. After graduating from Appalachian State University in 2019, I moved to Lumberton, NC to be closer to my family and girlfriend. We have spent our time together during this global pandemic creating new hobbies like crafting, finding new recipes to try, and collecting as many house plants as possible.
What is your professional background and how has it led you to work in environmental insurance?
During college I was a part of the Gamma Iota Sigma chapter. Being a member of this group allowed me to attend several insurance industry events and network with many individuals within this field. I took an internship in the summer of 2019 with Beacon Hill Associates. Shortly after graduation I was offered to continue my career with the company as a Production Assistant. I am excited to be building my career foundation with such a welcoming, reputable company.
What is the most important lesson you have learned in your career?
Don’t stop asking questions! When you stop asking questions you stop learning. It allows an individual to acquire knowledge, eliminate any uncertainty, and strengthen relationships. Throughout my time here at Beacon Hill, I have always been encouraged to continue to ask questions.
If you had to choose one word to describe the most important motivator to being a leader in your career, what would it be and why? What are you doing specifically at Beacon Hill to help you achieve this?
Confidence.You need to be confident in what you are talking about and the job you are preforming. If your client loses confidence in you, this results in opportunities being missed, relationships weakening, and mistakes being made. However, you are not born with confidence—this is a skill you must work hard to develop. At Beacon Hill, I have been able to challenge myself and increase my knowledge within the insurance industry. The confidence I have gained has allowed me to communicate effectively with agents and colleagues.
