What do you find most rewarding about working at Dowling & Yahnke Wealth Advisors?
I find everyone’s kindness and professionalism to be the most rewarding part about working at Dowling & Yahnke.
Why did you join Dowling & Yahnke Wealth Advisors?
I wanted to work for an organization that did not have a sales-driven culture.
What is the best concert you ever attended? Why?
The best concert I have ever attended was 311 Day, 2008 in New Orleans! 311 is one of my favorite bands of all-time, and every other year on March 11th (3-11 Day), they perform hours-worth of their songs; so much so that they always split the celebration up into two days-worth of shows!
Can you play any instruments? When did you start?
I started playing the electric guitar after I asked for/received one for Christmas of 2002. I’m no expert by any means, but I think that I’m slightly above average. I played the trombone for five years up until my sophomore year of High School. I also have a limited ability to play the drums and the piano.
What is your favorite hobby? Why?
My favorite hobby is going to the movie theater because I’m such a movie fanatic.
