Jenni Bowser, assistant vice president – Escrow supervisor, is NorthMarq’s commercial insurance supervisor par excellence, holding glittering insurance industry credentials as a licensed property and casualty producer with additional designations as a certified insurance service representative (CISR) and a certified insurance counselor (CIC). She brings a unique life experience to her work, and her intriguing hobbies are not what you would expect from an “insurance geek.”
As the expert to whom we turn when technical commercial insurance decisions must be made, Jenni also trains all of our new insurance employees. Her expertise is such that she even receives calls from some of NorthMarq’s lenders seeking second opinions about insurance decisions being made by other servicers!
Jenni comes from a military family, which meant frequent transfers. Her odyssey included Fort Belvoir, Virginia; Washington, D.C; Florida; Germany; Illinois; South Dakota; and Waverly, Iowa. These years were the laboratory in which Jenni learned the skills she displays at NorthMarq every day: intense focus on the task at hand, great attention to detail, and an unsurpassed ability to break tasks down into their component steps for training others. Jenni absorbed her father’s professional dedication and is known for her strong work ethic.
Jenni originally planned to become a medical doctor, but changed direction while working as a customer service representative on the larger accounts of a major Twin Cities insurance company. She joined NorthMarq as a commercial insurance specialist in 2007. Within six months, she advanced to an insurance lead position and by 2010 was promoted to her present position of Escrow Supervisor.
In her free time, Jenni enjoys epic fantasy novels such as A Game of Thrones, The Wheel of Time, and The Dragon Riders of Pern. She identifies Arya Stark from the Thrones series as one of the epic fantasy characters she most admires: “Everything she’s done has been on her own.” Apart from reading, Jenni shares with her husband Mike an unusual hobby: storm chasing. She and Mike have come within half a mile of a funnel cloud, an experience whose power and vividness Jenni acknowledges can be “terrifying” but to which she is drawn, she says, as “one of the few things we have no control over.”
With her insurance expertise and her dedication to providing excellent service, we are delighted to have Jenni in our ranks!
