What do you enjoy most about wealth management?
Working in asset management, we are at the epicenter of global events. Everything from politics to extreme weather affects markets and human behavior, which is relevant to our work. The job provides for a dynamic, stimulating, and challenging environment in an industry that is constantly evolving, where no two days are the same.
What do you love most about being part of Crestone?
The people and the environment of continuous learning. My coworkers are not only fun and motivating to work with, but I think as teammates we strive to challenge each other, think critically, and always improve.
What do you love to do outside of work?
Outside of work, I love being active and outdoors, whether that be at the beach or in the mountains. Running has been a long-time passion of mine and my favorite means to explore new cities and places.
