New Risk Analyst

Rhonda Curran joined CTSI as a Risk Analyst. Rhonda spent 29 years at Willis Towers Waston doing actuarial and risk management.

New Receptionist/Administrative Assistant

Kim Morgan is replacing Lisa Stoner, who recently moved to our Worker’s Compensation department, as the CTSI Receptionist/Administrative Assistant. Kim is a native of Colorado and has over 25 years of experience in office administration. In her role, Kim will be the voice on the phone for many CTSI members as she greets callers and directs them to the proper department. Kim is looking forward to helping CTSI continue to grow and to getting to know the CTSI membership.

New Sr. Property & Liability Claim Rep
