- What path led you to wealth management?
The global financial crisis of 2007-2008 had a profound impact on me and my family. My father lost his job and our family had to make sacrifices to maintain our standard of living. I was made aware at a young age how wealth and financial planning can impact all facets of life, and how establishing a solid foundation can weather most storms. Through those experiences I developed an interest in wealth management and tax compliance.

- Why should families connect wealth and purpose?
I believe purpose is the single most important idea a person can quantify. Purpose allows you to set and obtain goals. It allows you to measure success. When you connect your wealth with your purpose, you create a situation where success is inevitable.

Family is my biggest influence. I have incredible relationships with so many family members and I lean on them to help guide me through the tough decisions in life as well as celebrate the successes. I would not be the person I am today without them.
- What are the most important lessons you’ve learned in life?
The most important lesson that I’ve learned in life is to treat everyone with kindness and respect. I try to approach every situation with a sense of consideration and kindness and I believe that allows me to better connect with people. I also believe showing gratitude is a good way to create positivity in your life.
