Hobbies and Relaxation

If there is an opportunity to go outside, I take it! I love to hike, go to the beach, waterski, run, or any activity that involves breaking a sweat and the great outdoors! Apart from those activities, I love to travel and spending time with friends and family.

What got you into this business?

Many advisors in our industry had positive experiences when it came to money prior to going into this industry, but my story is a little bit different. In 2008, my parents nearly lost everything when the Great Financial Crisis occurred. At the time, I was 10 years old and didn’t understand how this happened, but the pain of the situation ignited an interest in this field of finance and economics. As an advisor now, developing relationships and walking alongside people has been my absolute favorite part of this role. Additionally witnessing clients leaving our office feeling more confident about their financial futures never gets old and motivates me to ensure I can be a worthy steward of their trust.
