My path to financial services was a bit unconventional. Following my graduation from The College of New Jersey, where I earned a degree in Sociology, I started my career in special education. I worked with a variety of students in need of developmental guidance outside the traditional classroom setting and helped prepare them for independent living.
After nearly a decade in that position, I joined Morgan Stanley. Many of the skills I used in the classroom, such as problem-solving, patience, and adaptability, proved to be valuable in my role in client support. Today, I’ve been in the business for more than 20 years providing a high level of client service in support of top-producing financial advisors. Over the years I’ve worked closely with clients, attorneys, accountants, and office and firm management. I am Series 7 registered and happy to be part of a great team at LPL Financial.
In terms of community-focused volunteer work, I am the proud co-founder of the Paramus Pancreatic Cancer Research Walk. What started as a way to honor my father, and was planned around the dining room table, has grown into a large annual event and a truly rewarding experience. Over the last decade-plus we have raised more than $2 million—every penny of which has gone toward research.
I live with my husband, daughter and rescued Pomeranian mix right across the street from the house in which I grew up. I enjoy cooking, live music, wine, discovering new restaurants, playing cards, and spending time at the beach with family and good friends!
