With over 14 years of experience as a financial advisor at Edward Jones, I oversee the financial affairs for a select group of families and business owners in the Austin area and points around the country. I believe in a holistic approach that begins by listening to your story and understanding what's important to you, before investing any money. Using an established process, I'll build a personalized strategy to help you reach your goals, and we'll partner together throughout your life to keep you on track. We do this by dedicating ourselves to providing you with concierge service in our boutique office environment.
Born in Europe, I grew up in the northeast and attended Rensselaer, where I competed in cross country and track, and earned a chemical engineering degree with a minor in finance. After graduation, my career started at General Electric working in various roles ranging from "roll your sleeves up" engineering problems to cost out business and finance initiatives. After five years there, something was still missing. In 2008, I seized the opportunity to start my own practice at Edward Jones to be able to make a direct impact in others' lives, financially and personally. Since then, I haven't looked back. I love my work and feel passionate about my clients, the industry and keeping abreast of the daily market, as well as the intricacies of long-term investment building and protection strategies.
I attained the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certification in 2014, and in 2015, I was named limited partner with our firm. I am a member of St. John Neumann and Texas Wall Street Women, and have served as a Junior Achievement instructor of 6th and 8th graders in Eanes Independent School District, promoting financial literacy at a young age.
Outside of work, my greatest joy is being a mom and wife. My husband and I have two sons and two dogs. We enjoy traveling, the outdoors, trail running, yoga, tennis and golf.
