Why I became a Financial Advisor

Life is a journey with many twists and turns. It’s amazing how forks in the road and unexpected opportunities and outcomes can lead us to where we eventually end up, and frankly where we should be. Helping people has always been a part of who I am although I haven’t always recognized that. I’ve also discovered over the years that meaningful interpersonal relationship are the essence of life and are truly important to me. Being a financial advisor allows me to focus on helping people achieve their financial goals while building lasting relationships.

Early on in life I was fascinated by the world of finance and investing. At the conclusion of an internship before my senior year in college, the financial advisor I was working with recommended I learn accounting since it is the building block of finance. Coming out of college, I landed a job at a Big 4 accounting firm where I learned accounting and obtained my CPA license. From there, I went to work for Merrill Lynch as an equity research analyst where I learned how the stock market works and how institutional investors research and select stocks in which to invest. After several years as an equity research analyst, I left the corporate world to join a fin-tech startup where I was able to synthesize everything I had learned in my previous jobs and use it to help my clients make better investment, financial and accounting decisions through data-driven insights. It was at this point I realized I enjoyed helping other people solve complex problems and relished in the camaraderie built during this process.

After the fin-tech experience everything came full circle and I started my own wealth management firm. I ended up where I started and I love what I do. Being able to help others, to build meaningful interpersonal relationships, and to solve complex and constantly evolving problems is exhilarating and fulfilling on multiple levels.

If you’re interested in working with a financial advisor who is committed to helping others achieve their goals, who is interested in building meaningful and lasting relationships, and who is well-equipped to develop dynamic and robust solutions to complex financial situations and problems then schedule a time to speak with me.
