Licensing exam

CAMDEN — Allen Insurance and Financial has announced that Stephanie Griffin has passed the Maine State Property & Casualty Producer licensing exam.

Griffin, of Camden, joined Allen Insurance and Financial in late 2010 as a receptionist in the company’s Camden office.

A native of Appleton, Griffin is attending the University of Maine in Augusta, working toward a bachelor’s degree in public administration. She has already earned a certificate in human resource management from UMA.

Griffin, who had not worked in insurance before joining Allen Insurance and Financial, participated in the company’s in-house education program, where employees who want to become licensed insurance producers in Maine attend class for four hours each week, then study and prepare for the state licensing exam on their own time.
