What got you interested in this field?

My very first “real” job was in the financial industry and I got hooked. I was very interested to learn how the financial markets worked and how that translated into helping clients in one of the most important areas of their life. After 32 years in the industry, a lot has changed, but one core consistency is caring for our clients.
