I like solving problems, getting the facts and figuring who’s at fault.
Garden City, NY (PRWEB) September 09, 2014
NAPW honors Joanna Y. Moore as a 2014 Professional Woman of the Year. Ms. Moore is recognized with this prestigious distinction for leadership in insurance business consulting. As the largest, most-recognized organization of professional women in the country, spanning virtually every industry and profession, the National Association of Professional Women is a powerfully vibrant networking community with over 600,000 members and nearly 300 Local Chapters.
“I planned on being a music teacher,” says Ms. Moore. “But after my first year of teaching I got married and we moved. It was the end of August so it was too late to get a fall teaching job. I took a job in property-casualty insurance instead and I loved it!”
Ms. Moore is still involved in the industry she fell in love with more than 33 years ago. A Chief Claims Officer for over 18 years, Ms. Moore recently retired from her position as a Chief Claims Officer and Sr. Vice President, Claims at Mercury Insurance Services, LLC, and has now established J Moore Consulting Services. Among her goals are to provide expert witness analysis and testimony and work with insurance companies to help them improve their claims handling services, as well as offer other insurance consultative services. “I’m detailed and analytical and very experienced giving testimony and depositions. I want to be able to help people, explain the dos and don'ts and prepare them to be 'their best witness.'"
It can be challenging dealing with the industry’s many layers of regulations and legislation, admits Ms. Moore. But ultimately, she finds it very rewarding to have the ability to use her skills to help people through a difficult time, such as a devastating car accident or a catastrophe. “I like solving problems, getting the facts and figuring who’s at fault,” says Ms. Moore.
NAPW’s mission is to provide an exclusive, highly advanced networking forum to successful women executives, professionals and entrepreneurs where they can aspire, connect and achieve. Through innovative resources, unique tools and progressive benefits, professional women interact, exchange ideas, advance their knowledge and empower each other.
