What got you interested in this field?

I was recruited by a former boss when he left the company, as we were working to join an investment firm. I started out writing financial plans for eight advisors and worked my way up to becoming a Chief Compliance Officer and Director of Operations. Almost nineteen years later, I love that the industry is always changing. The ability to lead clients through those changes builds trust and confidence that we have their best interests in mind always.
