Chad Harris

Senior Claim Assistant

How do you describe your job to someone you’ve just met? 

I tell people that I am a claims advocate for my clients. I review their claims, I consult them on how we should proceed in filing claims, discuss coverage, and I monitor their claims closely. I also update clients on their claims if/when their claims close and are settled.

What’s your morning ritual (prior to work)? 

Each morning I start out with a cup of coffee and read an article of some sort. I then head to the gym to get a quick workout in, and then catch the train to commute to work.

What does your morning typically entail?

Once I make it into the office I check if I had missed calls, emails, and then make a “to do list” of priority tasks to complete for the morning. Usually consists of claim follow-ups, various document requests for clients and setting up appointments.

What do you do for lunch?

For lunch, I usually start out by walking to Rittenhouse Square when the weather permits and I sit to enjoy reading a book on a bench. I then head back to the office and enjoy my packed lunch.

What does your afternoon typically entail? 

My afternoons are always busy. I have several clients for which I create monthly and quarterly reports since I follow their claims closely. I also participate in conference calls when we have difficult claims. In addition, I read policies, coverage letters, suits, etc.

What do you love to do outside of work?

There are three things I do outside of work on a consistent basis: Art (painting), the gym and Flag Football. When it comes to art, I work with many different mediums, however, one I thoroughly enjoy is acrylic painting. I paint about 3-4 hours during the week and even longer on the weekends. I’m an avid gym goer and workout about 5-6 days a week. On the weekends I play in a couple of flag football leagues.

Of the day you just described, what task/accomplishment makes you the proudest?

My artwork is what makes me the proudest. Here is why: Pablo Picasso once said, “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.” I have been able to remain an artist as an adult. Now, by no means am I Pablo Picasso, but what I love most about art is that it is subjective and each artist has their niche; mine is animal portraits and expression/abstract art. Plus, painting is a soothing therapy for me.
