In enacting change both at my own company and those of our clients, it will ignite change within the entire industry.
Margaret Mutch is a rising actuary driven to make positive changes in the actuarial industry. When Margaret was in high school, her mother was diagnosed with Stage IV Non-Hodgkin’s Large Diffuse B-Cell Lymphoma, and Margaret watched her mother fight with medical insurance companies for years. Her keen awareness of the shortcomings in the industry motivated Margaret to be the change, and with the goal of joining an excellent actuarial mathematics program, Margaret devoted herself fully to her studies and graduated as valedictorian while caring for her mom.
Margaret’s hard work and dedication paid off when she reached her goal and earned admission to the University of Michigan, where she is now pursuing her bachelor’s degree in actuarial mathematics. Margaret continues to care for her mother while excelling in her studies, and has recently completed her second internship and accepted a full-time job with Segal Consulting.
Ultimately, Margaret hopes to serve as a director of actuaries and help to develop policies that are non-discriminatory for her own company and her clients. While working in the multiemployer pension industry, she hopes to ensure full pension benefits for all clients. Margaret says, “In enacting change both at my own company and those of our clients, it will ignite change within the entire industry. The effects of such changes will not only reach the individual, but also the entire industry.”
