WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE TO PURSUE A CAREER IN WEALTH MANAGEMENT?

I was initially inclined to pursue a career in accounting; I took a basic accounting class in high school and found it interesting. By the time I hit intermediate accounting in college I realized I had enough of debits and credits and wanted something more dynamic.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE BEST ABOUT BEING A PART OF THE WMS PARTNERS TEAM?

Collaborating with my colleagues; I feel we have built an all-star team here of folks with lots of knowledge and experience.

HOW DO YOU WANT YOUR CLIENTS TO VIEW THEIR WEALTH?

As freedom to do what they want, whatever that may be, without stress and worrying. We try to practice the lifestyle aspect of managing our clients’ wealth, along with all of the financial aspects and implications.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE TO DO OUTSIDE OF WORK?

Getting outside with my kids, whether to the beach, on the river, on a trail or skiing.

WHAT IS YOUR MOST MEMORABLE TRAVEL EXPERIENCE?

My honeymoon trip to Hawaii; first time skiing “out west” in Colorado.
