I like handling workers’ compensation claims in particular. Although, I don’t mind doing legal research, I would not want to be in a position to where I couldn’t meet with people. My dad was in sales, and, in fact, both of my parents as their retirement jobs were greeters – my dad at Wal-Mart and my mother at Bass Pro Shops. I used to listen to my dad all the time as I was growing up as he was in his home office talking with people on the phone. I just enjoy being around people and talking with people. I wouldn’t want to be in a back room somewhere doing nothing but legal research, so I really enjoy what I do.
