I started my first job

at age 15 in the neighborhood ice cream shop, and quickly learned that scooping ice cream and making sundaes was okay, but what I truly enjoyed was connecting with people.

Ice cream is often so much more than just a sweet treat. Connecting with customers to learn about what they were celebrating, the special time they were spending with their kids and grandkids, or sometimes even being a listener and a bright spot amidst their bad day was what made my first job fun.

While I don’t serve ice cream sundaes anymore, what I truly love about working as a financial advisor is making that connection with my clients and learning what is happening in their lives. Whether it is a celebration or a concern they need assistance with, I am happy to listen and help.
