Since 2005, I have been serving clients as a financial advisor. Before my career in finance, I taught English in Japan, which shaped my perspective and ignited my passion for helping others.
When my mentor, April Barker, asked about my aspirations after returning to the United States, I expressed my desire to make a positive impact, solve problems, and engage with my community. She invited me to join her at the Abilene Waddell & Reed office, where I found immense satisfaction in guiding individuals and families through their financial journeys. I feel very lucky to have returned to my hometown to live and work. Abilene is a wonderful community and I am committed to seeing it thrive for years to come.
Outside of work, I'm a proud University of Kansas graduate and a devoted fan of the Jayhawks. I enjoy reading, karaoke, cycling, and traveling the world. My greatest joy is spending time with my two young children. Community involvement is crucial to me, as I actively contribute to St. Andrew's Catholic Church & School along with many other charities and organizations. I am President of the Abilene Noon Lions Club, where their motto, "We Serve," resonates deeply with me.
