I'm Kevin Wesley, I graduated EKU with a degree in RMI in December 2015. Switching my major to RMI was one of the best decision I made for my career. Upon graduation I had numerous job interviews and many positions offered to me, but none of them felt right for me. I had job offers in different fields such as claims, underwriter, owning an agency, and selling life insurance.

My experience so far in the insurance industry has been overall great. Honestly it started out a little rough. I took a job working for a State Farm agent right out of school. The job was not for me. So I began searching for a different position in the industry and found Tower Hill. The position I took was Renewal Underwriter I.
