Becky Grant (AB 1993)

"I've been living in Zurich, Switzerland for the past four years. I'm working as an actuary at a global reinsurance firm which is headquartered here. The actuarial profession has turned out to be a good choice for me in more ways than one, most recently due to the fact that it is recognized internationally. I completed my Fellowship of the Society of Actuaries (FSA) in 2000 while working in the U.S., and at the time I did not know I would be living overseas.
