P: (907) 802-5836
Greetings from Alaska! Before joining the Forefront Family as a Wealth CFO and the Director of Financial Planning, I spent three years at Wells Fargo Advisors before going on to co-found an independent financial planning firm in Seattle, WA that specialized in working with tech industry employees. I have truly found my calling in this industry and I am head-over-heels in love with the opportunities it provides to change peoples’ lives in positive and lasting ways.
I was born and raised here in Anchorage, Alaska, but I spent 11 years in Seattle where I received my BA from the University of Washington. I am also a graduate of the College for Financial Planning, where I completed my Chartered Retirement Plans Specialist designation focusing on the design, installation, maintenance and administration of retirement plans.
Outside of work, I love anything that can get me outside and enjoying the magnificent beauty of Alaska, including running, golfing, hiking, camping, fishing, skiing, and more. At home, I love to spend time with my friends and family and am an avid gourmet chef. I’m also fluent in Spanish and Portuguese and have used my language skills to be quoted in major news outlets, including The New York Times, OppLoans, Yahoo! Finance, and more.
In my community, I’m regular at the Anchorage Chamber of Commerce’s Young Professionals Group events and am a very active member of the Anchorage South Rotary Club where I hold leadership positions in the Youth Exchange program and manage their social media presence.
