Personal Thoughts
I credit my professional and personal life success so far to developing strong connections with others. My parents
led by example when it came to making family and friends one of the most important parts of life – they made it a
point to be there in the good times and the bad. Through the years, I realized how important the great relationships in
my life were. In high school, I was blessed with great friends – we played sports together, we studied together, we
laughed and we hung out all weekend long. I chose to attend college in Chicago, six hours from home, so my friends
took on an even more important role of “family away from family.” More than ever before, I realized how important
consistent and genuine relationships with others were in my life.
Upon entering the work-force, it was quickly evident that the development of strong, healthy relationships with the
people I am serving is what will make my professional life personally rewarding. The people who are most
successful and satisfied in their careers are those individuals who work hard to make a genuine connection with their
clients and their co-workers. This seems to be especially true in Wealth Management because finances are often a
highly personal and stressful topic. As I transition to a career in the Wealth Management area, I desire to help
connect with clients, earn their trust and work together to make wise financial and life decisions.
