How I got here:
Upon graduation from Cornell University, I was recruited by a large brokerage firm. After months of sales training and minimal help in understanding even the basics of investing, I quickly learned that the brokerage firm model was not for me. I then made the transition to Rockbridge, a fee-only financial planning firm, where I truly enjoy helping people and making a difference in their financial lives!”
Favorite part of the job:
“Meeting all of the different families that I get the pleasure to work with. I feel my job is to help simplify the financial planning process for families, and when I succeed at doing so, I find it very rewarding!”
