Our Associates: Above & Beyond
Each quarter, Barney & Barney recognizes employees who were caught delivering more than expected. Meet Kaslin Green, a Property + Casualty Claims Analyst in our Commercial Division in San Diego and learn more about why associates who go the distance decide to do so with Barney & Barney.
My father and grandfather were both insurance brokers, which had a big impact on my initial attraction to insurance. When I interviewed at Barney & Barney, I was introduced to associates that recently graduated from USD. They were motivated, driven and determined. Though they were right out of college, they were already so far advanced in the industry and I knew B&B would provide the tools and resources to help me develop in my career.
I am a Property & Casualty Claims Analyst in the Commercial Division and have been here for almost seven years. I truly enjoy solving complex claim issues for our clients, identifying potential problems early on and helping them resolve their claim. I take pride in each claim I work on and find myself celebrating when a client gets reimbursed, since it makes a positive impact on our client’s business.
I also enjoy our cohesive claims team, which has more than doubled since I started. We all work very well together by pulling from each other’s expertise and backgrounds. No two claims are the same and we are able to adapt and overcome each one in a very professional manner.
Coming straight out of the University of San Diego, B&B put me through all of the courses that I needed to gain a better understanding of the insurance industry. Every year since then, the goals I set with my manager have contributed to my professional growth and development.
I started at B&B two months after I graduated from the University of San Diego, where I played competitive Division I softball and had maintained a very balanced schedule. Joining the Barney Bombers softball team was a fun way to continue my love for the game, be active and develop friendships outside of work. I also use the corporate wellness program where I earn points to spend on medical expenses just by working out and maintaining a healthy life!
Our Inspire program, a subdivision of GROW, provides such a wonderful support system for the women in our firm. In our monthly meetings, we brainstorm ideas and solutions for challenges that we may have in the workplace and in our personal lives. I have grown through learning about their experiences inside and outside of work.
