Kristie Smith graduated from Old Dominion University in 2012 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management. After beginning her insurance career in Worker’s Compensation claims, she decided to make a change and pursue a career in underwriting. Kristie joined Continental Underwriters as an Assistant Underwriter in 2014 and was quickly promoted to Underwriting Analyst Team Lead in 2016. Kristie is a quiet leader who showcases her skills in her work product and challenges her team to always provide superior service to their customers. Kristie is a master organizer and uses these skills to help her team stay on top of their daily tasks and long-term goals. Kristie takes every challenge head-on and will not stop until she finds the most comprehensive and competitive insurance solutions for her customers. Kristie continues to expand her knowledge and further her education by learning hands-on from her Continental Underwriter’s teammates, and by going back to the classroom to obtain insurance industry designations. Kristie is currently working toward her Associate in General Insurance (AINS) and Associate in Commercial Underwriting (AU) designations, and looks forward to continuing to sharpen her underwriting skills as her career progresses
In her spare time, Kristie enjoys going to the beach as much as possible, spending time with her Chihuahua Jaxon, and hanging out with friends and family.
