Q&A

Why did you choose to come to work at Balentine?

Balentine has an incredible culture. The team-focused environment coupled with a conflict-free business model showed me that Balentine truly puts clients’ interests first.

What was your best business decision? 

My decision to come to Balentine. Balentine represents everything that I stand for and what I would want in my own wealth advisor.

What do you like to do in your down time away from work?

I spend a lot of my free time volunteering at a local fire department and EMS agency. While in college, I took the opportunity to follow that childhood dream, and I have enjoyed every minute of it.

Where is the most exotic place you have ever been?

I visited a few cities in China when I was in high school. While in Xian, China, I was able to see the Terracotta Soldiers; that was an experience that I will never forget.
