How and why did you get into this business?
The temporary employment agency with which I worked in San Francisco placed me with a wealth management firm to help organize tax files. I soon started helping with partnership accounting, and the rest was history! I enjoyed the work and sought out a similar role when I moved back home to Atlanta. I’m so fortunate to have found Balentine and am excited to continue my career in the wealth management industry.
If you weren’t in this business, what would you be doing?
Given my background in music, I would likely find a way to get back into the music industry by either performing, teaching, or working in management. I still play the bassoon and guitar and have no intention of stopping!
What do you like to do in your down time away from work?
I spend a lot of time cooking and baking, and I love to host dinner parties for friends. I’m always looking for new recipes and techniques and enjoy trying out new kitchen gadgets.
