I've been a member of SAHU since 2020 and previous to that held membership with other bay area chapters.
Why did you join SAHU and what do you love most about SAHU?
I joined SAHU because I appreciate the sense of community & belonging. We all desire to belong, to be part of something bigger than ourselves. In my humble opinion, our SAHU commonality is centered on gaining acceptance, attention and support from each other within our sphere but more importantly, we are all invested in extending that support to our greater community, all members of our industry. I find success when I experience an initial acquaintance, and over the course of community, create a meaningful friendship.
What’s one skill you’d like to develop or sharpen this year within SAHU?
Listening skills. It's better to be interested than interesting. Seek first to understand, instead of being understood. Honing in on this critical skill has the potential to create a powerful environment of trust, value and confidence.
What’s the best piece of career advice you’ve ever received?
Always believe in yourself.
When you’re not working, how do you enjoy spending your time?
I enjoy the great outdoors, mountains & ocean. It's the natural RESET button for me. Hikes, walks, swims, picnics. I enjoy exploring our national/regional parks and feel soo fortunate to have many beautiful options in our state to explore.
WHAT: 2-day Women’s Leadership Summit providing tools and resources to grow personally and professionally
WHEN: March 13th – 15th
WHERE: JW Marriot Resort & Spa – Las Vegas, NV
WHY: The Leadership Summit provides an opportunity for both current and aspiring female leaders in business to advance their career, personal growth, and increase impact and support in their teams as well as their industry.
Sacramento Association of Health Underwriters (SAHU) is honored to invite you to this Leadership Summit and proud to support our very own Cerrina Jenson, Ellevate Co-Founder and PAC chair who states, “Given that only 23% of executive leaders in our industry are women, but we make up 67% of entry level staff, Ellevate Foundation believes this annual leadership summit is a timely and critical opportunity to help bridge the gap and fast track both current and aspiring female leaders as their careers unfold.”
The National Association of Health Underwriters (NAHU), the preeminent
organization for health insurance and employee benefits professionals, is rebranding as the National Association of Benefits and Insurance Professionals (NABIP). For decades, the association has advocated on behalf of benefits and insurance professionals so that all Americans can be empowered to make wise healthcare and benefits decisions.
