Teresa's Story

Business Area: Retirement and Investor Services
Degree: Finance

To me, The Principal is a field of dreams. A little over a year ago, I was an intern. I provided administrative support to one of our leaders and also worked with plan mergers/spin-offs. Now, I’m an assistant to 11 plan review specialists. I help prepare documents and other materials for annual client review meetings. After the meetings, I provide follow-up and educational materials to our plan review specialists so they can communicate with our clients.

My competitive drive as an athlete has transferred over into my work. I like to succeed, so I invest a lot of time in understanding my job and helping support my team. Learning my job wasn’t easy at first, but with many hours of practice, it has become routine.

In my position, I have a lot of flexibility. I start my day pretty early, so I can get off early, take advantage of the on-site wellness center and still enjoy the majority of the afternoon. Beyond the flexibility, I appreciate the amazing benefits, the leadership and the people I work with. All of this makes The Principal a great place for me to work.
