“I love to help people. When I was a young Boy Scout, I learned the value and satisfaction of helping others by working with charities such as Habitat for Humanity. As a college student, I became naturally drawn to business and finance, and this passion made learning easy for me. As my expertise grew, I realized that many people struggle with the day-to-day world of finance because to them, it feels like a foreign language. Unfortunately, these individuals tend to be the ones who mismanage what they have or are taken advantage of. I knew I wanted to help people maneuver these issues, but it took me time to figure out how I could do this. I entered the large corporate world with success but lacked personal fulfilment. I realized that in the corporate world, the all-important bottom line superseded the importance of the clients.
When I met Deanna, I soon realized that I found a firm which allowed me to apply my skills and passions while helping clients navigate the ins and outs of the financial areas in their lives with confidence.”
