  • What most excites you about your work?

Every member of the TFO team is friendly and loves doing what they do. Each day presents an opportunity to learn something new. I never thought I would say I love going to work, but the people at TFO changed that.

  • What personal accomplishments are you most proud of?

I am most proud of taking a leap of faith with my husband and moving to Grand Cayman, where we spent a little over a year. I am an Arizona native and I do not like change, but my husband decided he wanted to attend medical school in Grand Cayman. Leaving the United States and being away from home was difficult, but I learned how to be more self-reliant and I’m now more self-confident as a result.

  • Why should families connect wealth and purpose?

Wealth and purpose add meaning to life. Growing up, my family made the most out of the money we had by making memories together and making the world better. Connecting wealth and purpose stretches a dollar beyond purchasing power and allows it to make a lasting impact.

  • What do you like to do outside of work? What’s your favorite way to spend a weekend?

I love to read, watch TV, and spend time with family. When I’m not working, you can usually find me watching a new TV show with my husband, heading to the gym, playing cards at my mom’s house, or downloading a new book to read.

  • What are some of your biggest influences?

My biggest influence has to be my family. My mom is a teacher and puts her heart and soul into everything she does. I try to emulate her in everything I do. She teaches me to work and try my best. My husband is my biggest cheerleader and keeps me working towards goals, even when they seem unattainable. Family is everything!

  • What are the most important lessons you’ve learned in life?

Be true to yourself and do what you know is right. At the end of the day, you only have to answer to yourself. Knowing that you did your best and that you did what was right is the best way to make sure you can be proud of what you’ve done.
