There’s no denying it: money, and how you handle it, can make or break your life (and your stress levels). While I’ve always had an interest in finances, the passion for it comes from knowing how much of an impact proper planning makes on people’s lives. My decision to become a financial advisor was not a shot in the dark; it was born out of a desire to help others steward their money well and work toward financial freedom.
Building My Career
I didn’t become a financial advisor immediately, but I did get my feet wet in the financial industry. After graduating from the University of Arizona with a bachelor’s degree in finance, and eventually from Arizona State University with an MBA, I worked in a variety of analytical and leadership positions in the finance world. These experiences helped me clarify my vision for putting people first and empowering them to make important decisions based on facts and their unique situation.
Then, in 2003, I took the first step in what has been a fulfilling 17-year journey when I became an independent financial advisor, founding Stewardship Wealth Advisors. Now, I spend my days as founder and investment advisor representative, working with clients to oversee and coordinate their financial lives. With a focus on building wealth both for today and the future, I offer comprehensive financial services that are tailored to your goals, needs, and values that not only help you find financial security but also give you confidence and control over your financial life.
The Best Part
I love my job and wouldn’t trade it for the world, but the best days are the ones when I get to show my clients that their hard work and wise stewardship have paid off and they can retire. Just knowing that my clients can live their lives without worry because of all the effort we’ve put in makes this job fulfilling.
Our clients are like family to us, so when we celebrate milestones with them or guide them through hard times, it reminds me that what I do, all the small steps every day, makes a deep and lasting impact for those I serve.
