Guest Bio:

I am passionate about leading, motivating, and encouraging others to be their best selves. Over the years, I have had the opportunity to experience several different professions, including intermodal logistics, teaching high school French, counseling, and leading operations for a non-profit. I earned my Master’s in 2016, and got certified in pre-marital and marriage counseling, which helps me help other people as I volunteer at my church.

I entered the financial industry in 2017 as a Customer Relationship Advocate, then provided guidance as an Investment Solutions Representative, and then led a Client Services team. I am super proud of passing five exams in 16 months: Series 7, 63, 66, 9 & 10. I tell everyone, “If I can do it, you can do it!”

Mostly, I love spending time with my husband, Rich. We have been married 29 years, and recently bought a lot on a lake in East Texas where we plan to spend time relaxing with our family: Carter, Bethany, Maggie, and son-in-law Dylan.
