  • What most excites you about your work?

This probably sounds weird but I love being one of the first people here in the morning and getting the front office and conference rooms ready for the day. It is also pretty exciting to work at a company where it is enjoyable to come to every morning, makes getting up for work every day pretty easy.

  • What has been your most rewarding career experience?

I used to work as the children’s ministry director of a church, working with kids is always one of the most rewarding experience’s, to be able to be an adult that has an impact and a positive influence on a child is one of the biggest gifts in life I believe.

  • What do you enjoy most about your role at TFO Phoenix?

Supporting the team in serving clients and feeling like I have helped clients gain peace of mind when they have a plan in place that aligns with what’s important to them.

  • What do you enjoy most about your role at TFO Phoenix?

I truly enjoy helping people in whatever way I can, I love greeting people when they walk in and hopefully improving their day just a little with a smile and a cheerful greeting.

  • What personal accomplishments are you most proud of?

I am most proud of my kids, watching them become the people they are as adults is a great thing to witness. It is rewarding to see all the hard work in parenting pay off as well as see them flourish in spite of the mistakes we make as parents.

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

I love to travel, any chance to get away for a weekend is the best but I am also a huge homebody and movie buff so most of my weekends are spent doing chores around the house then relaxing at home watching movies. When the weather is nice I love to hike and run!

  • What are some of your biggest influences?

Some of my biggest influences are my grandparents, they taught me a lot growing up and were two of the hardest working people I know, I wouldn’t be who I am without them.

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

The most important lessons I have learned in life are to be positive no matter how hard things get; having a good attitude and happy heart will make any day better. Also, everyone makes mistakes but it is nothing to beat yourself up about. They can usually be fixed and, in the end, they help you grow stronger as a person.
