Emily Pratt '12

Proposal Design Consultant

I am currently working as a Proposal Design Consultant at National Life Group. National Life Group is a life insurance company located in Montpelier Vermont. I began working here over a year ago as the Product Development Actuarial Intern. I held that position for 7 months and then transitioned over to the job I hold today. I worked two days a week the Spring semester of my Senior year and began working full-time as soon as I graduated from Saint Michael's College. I still work closely with the Actuaries, but I don't work on creating the life insurance products like I did during my internship. Instead, I work on testing the software that we use to illustrate the life insurance policies. National Life is currently in the process of implementing a new Web Based Illustration System, so I have been kept busy keeping the current Illustration System maintained as well as working on the new System.

Saint Michael's really prepared me for life after college. By majoring in math, I developed the work ethic and analytic skills needed to succeed after college. Both of these skills have been very useful in my success as a Proposal Design Consultant. I also majored in economics which helped me in understanding how insurance works. Majoring in Mathematics and Economics at Saint Michael's College did a great job at preparing me for my career at National Life.
