what is a reinsurance analyst?

What is a reinsurance analyst? And how the heck can waht they do be worth so much when it requires only a high school education? I have a friend who is a reinsurance analyst, has h.s. diploma and is currently earing about $30,000 more per year than I am with my Masters degree in Counseling. Is helping people so undervalued or is my friend just overpaid? Well, she started in the business about 15 years ago and still with same company, but still blows me away when she gets a $15,000 or $20,000 bonus every year when I have never seen one in my life and we are the same age!! I think no wonder our insurance cost so much if this is what they do with their money!!!
