What inspired you to work in the financial industry?

I’ve always had a personal interest in all aspects of finance – from planning to investing.  I started working at a large financial services firm in Bristol, England, which exposed me to all aspects of financial services.  I felt like there was always something new to learn and that is still the case now.  Working in an ever-evolving industry makes it interesting.

Why did you join Dowling & Yahnke?

I moved to San Diego in pursuit of a role in which I could surround myself with passionate people within a company that puts its clients’ interests first.  After joining the D&Y team, I quickly discovered that everything we do is rooted in doing what is right for our clients.

What is your favorite vacation spot?

I can’t say I visit for the weather, but my favorite vacation spot is England.  Visiting my family is very important to me.

I am happiest when…

I get outdoors to enjoy a long walk – preferably with an ice-cream stop along the way.
