WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT WEALTH MANAGEMENT?
I find relationships with clients to be one of the most fulfilling aspects of working in wealth management. I enjoy taking the time to develop a strong, working relationship with my clients. Once that relationship has been established, I am able to get a complete picture of a client’s goals as well as understand any concerns he or she may have in regard to his or her wealth. In my experience, a strong working relationship with a client leads to the best results.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT BEING PART OF WMS?
The breadth of knowledge of my colleagues is what I love most about working at WMS. I have the unique opportunity to work with individuals that have various degrees (MBA, CPA, JD, CFA, etc.) and with that, each person brings his or her own specific strengths to the team. This creates an incredibly knowledgeable team, which ultimately benefits the client. Every day provides an opportunity to learn something new.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE TO DO OUTSIDE OF WORK?
As the mom of two young, active boys, I do not have much free time but when I get the occasional quiet moment, I enjoy cooking. My husband and I enjoy being outside with the boys, current favorite activities are going for long walks at Oregon Ridge or taking the older one for a bike ride while I run with the younger one, who is still agreeable to go in the jogging stroller!
