What was your first job?

In high school I worked at a butcher shop and deli in my neighborhood. When I wasn’t washing dishes, cleaning out the freezer, and breaking down boxes, I operated the fresh-squeezed orange juice machine.

What is your “why” for being in the retirement plan industry?

We get to create clarity from confusion, empowering people to take positive action and make wise choices that strive to benefit themselves, their employees and their families. We have the ability to create leverage: The decisions we influence today create a lifetime of impact for our clients and their families for years to come.

What is your favorite hobby/what do you like to do in your free time?

My favorite thing is a long dinner with my family, laughing and telling stories. Other than that, I love to ski, bike, play tennis, fish, and I am a birder.
