The 12th floor of The Wrigley Building has seen a surge of activity this summer as we’ve welcomed new Team Members and four interns to our Employee Benefits, Property & Casualty, Accounting and Claims Management divisions. Micaela Norals joined us in June as the seventh intern whom we’ve welcomed from the Development School For Youth’s All-Stars Project. Micaela attends the Alan B. Shepard High School in Palos Heights where she just completed her junior year and excelled in math and her culinary arts classes. Her dream college is Grambling State University in Louisiana where she intends to study nursing so she can help others on a daily basis.
Micaela is working with Alper’s Employee Benefits Division and learning about the unique relationship between Carriers, Alper and our Clients as well as reviewing the renewal process with Employee Benefits Account Managers. She acknowledges that working in Employee Benefits and learning about insurance has been insightful for her nursing career aspirations. Micaela feels she now understands what a major role insurance plays for patients, as she becomes familiar with the different types of carriers and coverage options.
When asked what is surprising about working in her first corporate environment, Micaela notes that she didn’t expect everyone to be so approachable and welcoming to an intern. We’re thrilled to have such a bright individual joining us this summer and wish Micaela the best in her senior year of high school!
