  • Regina Fox, Senior Executive Assistant, assisting our insurance professionals for over 20 years in advocating for coverage.

Due to the unique challenges facing workers’ compensation claims directly as a result of COVID-19, a separate task force was created. The COVID-19 Workers’ Compensation Task Force consists of the following:

  • Audrey Allsopp (Chair), Claim Consultant, experienced workers’ compensation claims professional with over 25 years of diverse experience with in-house and adjuster experience.
  • Jamie Burk, Senior Associate Claims Consultant with ten years’ experience in handling national accounts at a nation-wide third party administrator, specializing in workers’ compensation.

The creation of these task forces enhances our robust claims services team of 30 professionals and will enable us to assist our clients more fully with a focused diverse expertise.
