I grew up in Lake Stevens, just north of Seattle, where I had countless memorable experiences. My parents, sister and I worked as a team to take care of the property. At the time, I didn’t know just how well that would bond us together to this very day and install a pride of home ownership within me.
While l learned a great deal of how to care for a home, my parents and grandparents also taught me the value of saving and investing. That skill was one my mom learned from her parents, while it was one that my dad had to learn.
As my parents grew their business, they took more interest investing. Every morning, my dad would take me to school and we would listen to news radio. To this day, I remember checking to see the closing prices of the stocks he followed when I got home from school.
After working with a few other brokers, my parents found a local Edward Jones financial advisor that really worked for them. This was a huge difference! He would keep my parents in-tune with the markets. He eventually become my financial advisor and worked with me to diversify and expand my portfolio.
Over time, my interest continued to grow, and I pursued my business degree at the University of Idaho. After graduation, I worked for two local banks and progressed my career to becoming AVP and branch manager. Years later, I moved to Colorado Springs and I found my passion as a financial advisor with Edward Jones.
Each day, I’m excited to come into the office and learn more about my clients and what’s important to them. I enjoy making tailored financial strategies that fit individual needs and goals. My goal is for you to feel comfortable, educated and understand your strategy throughout the process.
Outside of the office, I play golf at Colorado Springs Country Club, snowboard in Breckenridge and enjoy watching football – always rooting for my home team, Seattle Seahawks! I enjoy traveling to Seattle to visit my grandma, sister and friends and to Las Vegas to visit my parents.
