My path to a long-standing career in the financial services industry started with my passion for financial education and people. Understanding the process of building a sound plan, and how all of the pieces fit together, is critical to having the confidence to make good financial decisions. My clients teach me about themselves, and I in turn take their stories and align them with a financial planning design that is tailored to their specific goals and critical objectives. Partnering with people in this process, and ultimately seeing them succeed, brings me tremendous joy and pride.
Before establishing Encore Financial with my business partners, I spent over 20 years with JRA Financial Advisors. I built professional and personal relationships as I learned from some of the best in the industry. During my time there I earned numerous licenses and registrations, furthering my expertise in the field. After the company went through an ownership change, I decided to focus my strategic leadership skills on growing a team who will provide the same culture and overall service I was taught is so critical to client success.
Outside of my professional life, I cherish the time I spend with my family and all that comes with a busy household. I currently live with my husband, Clayton, our three children, Lavin, Quaid, and Kendrie, and our (high spirited) dog, Bowie. The day-to-day craziness that comes with a busy family grounds me and gives me a strong sense of purpose. When not being their personal Uber driver, or cheering them on in their sporting events, we love to travel and actively volunteer for local organizations near our community.
