What do you enjoy most about wealth management?

Watching proper financial planning enable families to live their dreams and leave the world in a better place than they found it. Our clients are very inspiring.

  • Receiving my MBA from Northeastern University
  • My well-rounded financial services work experience — from small and mid-sized RIAs to large investment firms

What quality of yours makes you best suited to what you do?

Asking good questions. And my ability to distill challenging concepts well through verbal and written communication helps when working with future clients to select the right wealth management firm for their family’s unique needs.

What would you be doing if you weren’t working for Aspiriant?

Running a dog rescue and using my personal training certification to train clients and improve their lives.
