I started my career as a high school math teacher. While I loved many aspects about teaching and working with teenagers, I decided to switch gears into finance. While working with people in all walks of their careers and stages of life, whether they are beginning their careers or deciding their legacies, those struggling to save a little to high net worth clients, there is a need for everyone to understand saving and investing. It would have been so great to have resources to begin earlier and teach students financial literacy. It’s so important to understand different ways to invest and knowing an avenue to achieving financial and life goals. I am excited to be part of an organization that hopefully makes this happen in Washington schools.
