Insurance Immersion: Welcome Remi and Taylor!

March 9, 2020

Welcome Summer 2019 Insurance Immersion Interns!

Remi Leblanc
, Quinnipiac University

I am Remi Leblanc, one of the summer insurance immersion interns here at Chalmers. I will be working out of the Bridgton office this summer and look forward to learning as much as I can about this field.

A little bit about me, I live in Yarmouth and graduated from Yarmouth High School in 2017. Before that I lived in Massachusetts about 40 minutes south of Boston.  I just finished my second year of college at Quinnipiac University. It’s a school right outside of New Haven CT. I really enjoy the school and what it has to offer. I major in finance and minor in business analytics. This is proving to be useful because I’m already diving right into my first projects here and will have many tasks that will help me learn about working in insurance.

My school is located right next to a state park so I spend some free time doing some hiking around there although nothing can compare to the hiking around here. I am also involved in a fraternity on campus where I’m learning how to better work with people and getting involved in community service and philanthropy. I like to spend time outside when I can. I snowboard a little bit at Sunday River over breaks and in the summer I’m at the beach whenever I can. I either go to the little beach right in Yarmouth or head down to York for Long Sands.

I am very excited to have this opportunity to learn this business this summer. Everyone has been so nice and have taken time to say hello. I wanted to learn the insurance business this summer because I think it will make an exciting career with so many different paths to take. Coming from a family with someone who works in the field, I’ve always had an appreciation for the industry however was unsure about the different functions within. I hope to learn as much as possible here and hopefully identify the area of insurance I’m most interested in and could excel in.

I’m thrilled to be a part of the Chalmers team this summer. I can tell there is a lot to learn and a lot to do.

Taylor Kashmer, University of Southern Maine

Hi, everyone! I’m Taylor Kashmer, one of the Insurance Immersion Interns here at Chalmers Insurance Group for the summer. I graduated from Traip Academy in Kittery, Maine back in the spring of 2016. I am now studying communication, marketing, and public relations at the University of Southern Maine where I will be a senior in the fall.

I spent this past fall living and studying abroad in Galway, Ireland. It was a truly incredible experience! I even got the chance to travel to Prague on a solo trip to see the Christmas Markets while I was in Europe. I love seeing new and different parts of the world. Besides Ireland and the Czech Republic, I've been to Italy, France, and Spain. My next travel goal is to take a road trip across the United States to see more of our beautiful country.

I have gained experience within the realm of marketing through past work as a Marketing & Event Coordinator at the Institute for Family-Owned Business and as a Marketing Intern at the International Association of Privacy Professionals. My courses have also equipped me with skills that I am eager to put to use at Chalmers, from the marketing of services to project management.

I will be working out of the York Office this summer, which I am super excited about! When I am not at work, I can be found hiking a mountain somewhere, laying on a beach at Cliff Island, or kayaking at my family’s camp in Winthrop.

Here’s to the start of a great summer!
