1.Where are you from originally? What do you like about it? Hermitage, PA.  Honestly, I miss the snow.

5. What was your very first job? I was a dishwasher a The Cookery, a local business in the town where I grew up.  I was 16, they worked me almost 10 hours the first day.  It was also my last day.

10. Why financial services? I have a heart for helping others, which is why I chose physical therapy originally.  Something was lacking for me in my previous career (well a lot of things actually) and I needed a change.  I love lasting impact of what we do, the ripple effect through the generations.  I want to look back in 30 years and see the impact of my work change the world for the better.
