Welcome to the CAS Staff Spotlight, a column featuring members of the CAS staff. In this edition, we are proud to introduce Katie Hettler.

  • What do you do at the CAS?
    My main responsibility is to manage the Society Partners Program. Society Partners are crucial to our association, as they demonstrate a yearly commitment by supporting annual CAS activities.

Aside from that, I take part in advertising for the Actuarial Review as well as webinars, seminars and meetings.
  • What do you enjoy most about your job?
    Learning! It is impossible to perfect this role, because it is constantly evolving. I love coming to work knowing every day will be different than the last. Additionally, my coworkers leave sweet treats in the kitchen roughly once a week, which is cool.
  • What’s your hometown?
    Born in Pittsburgh (go Steelers!) — raised in Jacksonville Beach, Florida.

    Traveling home to Florida to visit my family, work on my tan and rack up my airline miles.
  • What’s your favorite travel destination?
    Easy. Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.

    I can write, eat and throw with both hands. Is that even interesting?
