Insurance Immersion: Meet our summer interns, Kelton and Sarah!

May 23, 2018

Hi! My name is Kelton Loper! I am one of the new Chalmers Insurance Immersion Interns. I am 20 years old and my hometown is Norway, Maine where I have lived my entire life. I graduated from Oxford Hills Comprehensive High School in 2016 and I now attend the University of Maine in Orono, where I am a rising junior. I am looking forward to spending the summer as a part of the Chalmers team!

While I am at school I keep myself busy with a variety of extra-curricular activities. I play intramural soccer, attend SPIFFY (investment club) as an analyst in the telecomm sector, and I am a brother at UMaine’s Lambda Chi Alpha chapter. Within these organizations I enjoy being connected with the entire UMaine community through community involvement activities and volunteering. At the University of Maine my major is Finance, and my minor is innovation engineering. My favorite classes at the university so far have been my economics and innovation classes. I am not totally sure what I want to do when I graduate but I look forward to exploring my options and finding a career that is a great fit for me. One of my favorite parts of being at school is that there is always something going on, a game to play, a presentation to give, or an organization to volunteer with, who would’ve guessed that Orono, Maine is actually the city that never sleeps.

I am excited to join Chalmers this summer for the Insurance Immersion Internship. I am looking forward to learning about the insurance industry as a whole and making valuable connections. I also look forward to being a part of the team and getting to meet all of my new co-workers. I will be working Monday-Thursday in the Bridgton office and I will be working half days on Friday at the Norway office. I can’t wait to be involved in both offices! Overall I am psyched to begin my summer and internship with the Chalmers Agency and can’t wait to learn more about insurance!

     

Hi! I’m Sarah Giggey! I am one of the newest interns in the Chalmers Insurance Group (CIG) 2018 Summer Insurance Immersion Program. In the spring of 2017 I took a management class and one of my assignments was to speak with a manager of a company and ask them questions about their day-to-day tasks in their field of study. Believe it or not, I spoke with owner, Bill Chalmers, of Chalmers Insurance Group. During this phone call I drilled him with questions about the insurance world and by the end of the call he was speaking to me all about the Insurance Immersion Program. Here I am today, excited and ready to spend my summer with the Chalmers Group as one of their summer interns.

For some background on myself, I live in Gray, ME and am a Junior at the University of Southern Maine, where I study Business Administration. Previously, I attended Franklin Pierce University in Rindge, NH. Post college, I hope to apply to grad school and get my master’s degree.

I enjoy spending my free time with friends and family. In the summer months you can find me lake-side and in the winter months, you can find me on the snowmobile or ski trails. I consider myself a fitness fanatic and love to run. I have run two half marathons and hope to complete my first full marathon sometime soon.

During this internship, I hope to work closely and get to know more of the co-workers at Chalmers Insurance Group. From this experience, I will gain a greater understanding of insurance as a future career choice. I believe that this summer I will grow as a person and a business student.

I am so excited to be a part of the Insurance Immersion Program at CIG and can’t wait to see what this summer holds!
