What do you love about being part of Sage?
I love being able to help clients daily. Whether that is helping address an outside-the-box question about their finances or calmly keeping them on course during stormy market environments. I’ve loved investments since I was a teenager, and I think I have an affinity and the talent to help match the most appropriate investments to meet each person’s individual goals.
What particular qualities do you contribute to the Sage team and the client experience?
I am analytical, empathetic toward the issues that clients face, willing to take a team-based approach to create solutions, driven to seek the best results for our clients, an independent thinker, and not afraid to speak up if I think things need to be done differently to produce the best results.
