I learned about money management at an early age, as my mother raised the four of us by herself and struggled to make ends meet. I set my sights on being financially independent as an adult. As a teenager, I earned my own money babysitting and delivering newspapers. Throughout high school, I worked as a courtesy clerk at a grocery store, saving nearly everything I made. My goal was to take a trip to Japan when I turned 18, and I crushed that goal, traveling to Japan by myself for a two-week stay. Beyond learning Japanese customs and culture on that life-changing trip, I also learned I could control my financial future.
My husband and I live in Edmonds. We are a host family to international exchange students through Edmonds College. We are animal lovers, and our menagerie includes chickens, bunnies, fish, a guinea pig and a dog! In our free time, we enjoy exploring the beautiful outdoors, which includes boating and camping adventures in the summer, and snowboarding the mountains in the winter.
Prior to joining Edward Jones, I worked in the financial arena preparing individual tax returns. Eventually, I decided that I wanted to work in a more comprehensive way with my clients, helping people with their financial "big picture." I joined Edward Jones in 2017, and I love the work and the firm.
I grew up in the same neighborhood where my office is located, and I find great pleasure working in the community that raised me. The most rewarding part of my job is helping my clients secure their financial futures. Creating goals, crushing them, then moving on to the next big goal is one of my passions.
I enjoy working with businesses, families and individuals in all walks and all stages of life. I truly value the relationship and partnership I share with my clients, that, more often than not, extends beyond generations.
Do you have big goals that need crushing? I'd love to partner with you to help you achieve them.
