Soon, I will be driving to Mobile, AL to attend a 7 day, hands on, immersive flood class. I became a mentee last year in Pilot Allstate's Flood program and will continue my training from June 10th-17th at their training faucility in Mobile. I'm excited as I missed last year's class due to a storm deploment. I may repeat that issue if Hurricane Cristobal hits the US as forecasted on June 8th, but finger's crossed, it dies out way before reaching our already troubled soil.
2 days of Xactimate software training on all things flood, followed by 5 full days of in-class and in-field training. Always eager to learn something new, and I feel moving to flood adjusting full-time is the right move. Less roof top ascents and more 1-on-1 with people needing my help to get them back on their feet. Helping people is the main reason I do this job and why I have decided to pursue it full-time from June forward. At the end of October my apartment lease in Austin is up and I plan to adjust from wherever the job takes me. I'm going to trade the comfort of an apartment for that of a home on wheels. Still working out all the details, but the plan has already been set in motion, so wish me luck.
Will update if the hurricane hits Lousiana as forecasted.
