How do I help clients live a richer life?
The reason I love my job is that we provide guidance on real-world situations that affect almost everyone. I have always been passionate about personal finance and getting to do that as part of my career by helping both my clients, as well as my family and friends, navigate through all of it is what I enjoy most. As we assist with the large and the small financial issues that arise, we give our clients the space to shift their time and energy to what matters most and therefore allow each of them to live a richer life.
How do I spend my time outside of Brighton Jones?
During my free time, I love to travel, surf, watch movies, explore new coffee shops, and spend time with family and friends. Like many of our clients and coworkers, traveling is my favorite activity and I use every chance I get to explore a new country or culture. I have had the opportunity to visit all six major continents. When not hopping on a plane, there is also plenty to do in the Bay Area such as hiking or going to the beach.
