I want to take a minute to share with you a little about my family story. My older brother Brian and I were raised in Tucson, Arizona, by a hard-working single mother. She worked days, nights, and often weekends to provide just enough for us as a family to get by. During my childhood I was very aware that my mother put her interests, no matter how small or how big, ahead of her own. Little did I know how powerful an impact this lesson would have on me later in life. The path I chose in becoming a financial advisor, is a transcension of that same lesson I unknowingly learned growing up: that is as a fiduciary in the financial services field, putting my clients’ interests, no matter how small or how big, ahead of my own.
