Mark Smrecek, ’00

I am currently working as a Consulting Actuary in Chicago. As part of my career, I work with large companies on a variety of pension and health care issues. Particularly, we focus on determining the cash and accounting cost of providing these benefits and developing strategies to optimize the effectiveness of funding these benefits.

While these objectives are far from those studied while at Lawrence, the critical thinking, collaborative work environment, and constant learning that were such major parts of my Lawrence experience are daily practices in my professional life. Being willing and able to explain thoughts and processes in multiple ways in order to gain mutual understanding is a skill that I use constantly that was developed in Briggs Hall working through Foundations of Algebra and Analysis problems with my classmates and professors.
