One word that describes how you like to work
What are you looking for from your WIFS members? – Networking with other amazing gals in the industry (we are few and far between, I manage a team of 9 men and all my peers/superiors are men); potential recruitment to build my team with more diversity and perspective/advice from other finance career women.
What's your favorite moment of your career?
The day I was promoted to Desk Director at Jackson, I had just returned to my sales job at work from maternity leave, I was more stressed and depressed than I had ever been my whole life with the guilt of leaving my baby at day care and the constant pumping and everything else, but somehow I was able to hide what was really going on and step up to the plate. It’s a reminder that no matter what is going on personally, there is a way to shine and excel at work.
What was your childhood dream job?
President, I went to the White House when I was 4 and learned that there had never been a female president, so I told everyone that I was going to be the first!
How do you spend your free time?
Playing with my two year old daughter, studying for the CFP, running, brunching and planning trips!
What is your motto or personal mantra?
“Bring Energy Home” – pour everything into work, but the only reason you do it is for the time you spend at home with loved ones. So as much passion and energy that you put towards your job, even more should be put into your home life. It’s easier said than done!
What’s one thing people would be surprised to know about you? Probably that I joined this industry less than 5 years ago, people are always surprised by that as most in my position have well over 10 years industry experience. Not a very fun answer, but you asked for just one thing!
