What should your clients know the most about you?
My passion is uncovering high-caliber investment opportunities, seeking to add value to our clients’ portfolios via a rigorous due diligence process, which weighs the benefits against associated risks. I’ve spent over 15 years doing this, primarily centered on alternative investments, but I still get up every morning energized by the challenges of my field.
What do you do in your personal life that helps you help your clients?
My guiding principle is understanding that Cerity Partners’ investment recommendations not only affect our clients’ portfolios but also have a real impact on their goals, aspirations, and lives of their families. I am a proud mother of two wonderful children, who remind me every day to focus on what is most precious in our lives.
