Insurance has always been a part of my life, growing up with it as a family business, and now having it play an integral part of my life. My father, Brian Gilbert, started MIG Insurance in 1995 and I spent many days in the unofficial MIG after school daycare program watching him in his element. This early exposure to the insurance industry opened my eyes up to the opportunities it presented but it would take a while for it to be engrained in my everyday life. I started as an Autopac broker in 2009 while going to university, long story short – the insurance industry and university were not meant to be a part of my life at that point. I started working as a conductor for CN riding the rails and seeing the more beautiful parts of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Northwestern Ontario. After a few years of that, I made a major life change and went back to school and completed my Bachelor of Business Administration-Marketing at the University of Winnipeg. I joined MIG Insurance again in 2015, obtained my full CAIB designation in 2016 and haven’t looked back since. I am currently completing a Master of Management Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Smith School of Business at Queen’s University.

Although my everyday function is not primarily as a broker, I enjoy the opportunity of applying my marketing knowledge in the insurance industry and finding new ways to integrate new technologies to innovate and give MIG a competitive advantage. I am also life insurance licensed and have enjoyed diving into that world expanding MIG’s footprint in the Life & Group Benefits space.

My hobbies include staying active, whether it be hiking at the lake, playing hockey or whatever sport I can find time for, reading – I have a long list of recommended books if you ask, and spending time with friends and family. I have two Siberian Huskies so they force me to stay active as well as vacuum my house every day.

I am thankful for the opportunities the insurance industry has given me and look forward to being a part of and contributing to it for many years to come.
