The best teachers are those who take the time to understand their students first. I learned early on in my career that the difference between merely sharing facts and changing someone's life is making a personal connection. That's why my team at Edward Jones invests time upfront in discovering the specific visions and goals of our clients.
My path to financial advising began through a life-changing recommendation from my own financial advisor when I was still teaching math. He saw how my background in education and my love for helping others could transfer to a career in financial services. I jumped in and more than a decade later, I have never looked back!
What gives me joy is helping people discover and realize their dreams. One of the first things I ask is, "what do you want to do?" At first, many don't know the answer, but our process reveals the answers. I then have the honor of guiding clients through planning and can celebrate with them as they achieve their financial goals. What is on your wish list?
