Why did you choose to come to work at Balentine?
I chose to work at Balentine because of the team of people they have and the incredible environment they foster. Everyone I met with was intelligent, kind, and welcoming. Most importantly, I could see the enthusiasm for and dedication to the clients they serve, as well as to each other.
What is the most exotic place you have ever been?
New Zealand was definitely the most exotic place I have ever been. During my two weeks there, I boated through the Waitomo Caves, saw Te Piua erupt, learned about the Māori culture (including watching a haka dance), took a helicopter ride, hiked the Franz Josef Glacier, and sailed with dolphins at Milford Sound.
What do you like to do in your down time away from work?
When I’m not working, I love to travel and am constantly figuring out where to go next, especially if it means playing a new golf course with my friends and family. When not traveling, I like to hang out with three of the most adorable rescue dogs ever in our backyard, at the dog park, or at the lake. I am also a book worm, devouring everything from mysteries to fiction to cookbooks, and have so much fun experimenting with new recipes in my kitchen.
What was your best business decision?
My best business decision was returning to school for my Master’s degree. I worked in finance roles for five years and wanted to have a stronger foundation in my chosen field. I was fortunate to be accepted to Emory University. While there, I was part of an amazing cohort, and we learned together from such brilliant professors. The classes were team-oriented challenges that guided us on how to champion each other’s strengths to achieve overall goals and opportunities to improve.
