    What are your specific goals for Tri-Star Trust clients? 

    My goal is simple:  I want our clients to have Tri-Star on the forefront of their minds for every financial decision. My hope is that clients will build deep and meaningful relationships with our team centered on trust. 

    What do you love most about working at Tri-Star?

    I love what this company stands for. Our higher purpose is what initially drove me to this company years ago, and I try to embody everything this company was built upon. Each day, I am blessed to have the opportunity to serve my clients, colleagues and community in a way that provides purpose both personally and professionally. 

    What’s your favorite quote?

    I honestly don’t have a favorite quote. However, I’m very philosophical and wake up each morning to Simon Sinek’s Notes to Inspire. These words of inspiration challenge me each morning to reflect, and refocuses me to stay on track regardless of what each day throws at me.

    What are your top three bucket list items?

    1. Travel to Egypt and get lost in the beauty of the pyramids.
    2. To raise my son and daughter to be confident, selfless, and compassionate individuals that seek to understand meaning and purpose.
    3. Drive a Dodge Viper, done!
    4. Now that the Viper is done, my 3rd would be to make a lasting impact in the community I serve.
