Strategy When Dealing with Clients
“I think it’s important that we can relate to each other—that I understand where they’re coming from and they understand what I can do. We have to have shared values as well. If they are going to trust me to talk about their family, their money or what’s keeping them up at night, they need to know who I am.”

Major Work Success
“I think to get my Masters and my CFP were really great accomplishments for me personally, and I encourage people to go after any sort of academic accreditation they want to have.”

Best Business Advice You’ve Received
“A few things come to mind. My dad told me to ‘always work hard.’ An executive I once reported to said, ‘The most important thing is what you keep going on between your ears, because that is what you can control. Everything else you can’t control.’ And one of my mentors wisely said the role of a leader is to ‘show up and bring joy into the company every day.’”

Most Rewarding Part of Work
“Helping people find peace of mind in what they’re doing.”
