      Rachelle's Answer

      "I started my career in human resources, and after about three years into my career, my employer asked me to step into a role that focused on employee benefits management. I found benefits easy for me to understand, and I enjoyed helping management and employees understand the benefits available to them. I can make benefits seem simple, which is why they wanted me in the role. I haven't looked back since!"

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I am now graduating with my degree in Human Resources with a focus on benefits management. I purposefully chose this specialty because so many employers and employees are unclear on the details of their benefits packages. I love to take complicated topics and make them simple for others to learn."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I have been a benefits manager for the past ten years. As a benefits manager, I have found that I love to help others simplify their benefits packages and ensure they know their benefits. I have also been able to research and identify benefits trends to ensure our organization is offering the best benefits packages that are in demand and cost-effective. They can be confusing, but I find it easy and rewarding to explain to others."
