I am passionate about 2 things: people and how to learn more to help people. Finance is fascinating to me, so I want to know everything I can to truly empower people that I work with. In short, I'm passionate about getting better at my job, to make others better at reaching their goals and enjoying that moment when a person can sit back, relax and let out an, "aawwhh" of relief, because they got to their destination financially, emotionally, and mentally. If my clients don't get to experience that feeling, then I don't either - so we are completely in this together.
