I grew up in San Pedro, California where I spent my younger years in our family owned and operated bookstore. There, I had my first job at age 8 earning a quarter an hour straightening shelves and dusting books. Like all of my family before me, I learned the importance of hard work, personal responsibility, and developed a lifelong love of reading. As a young adult stretching my wings, I moved to Davis, California where I worked as an administrative assistant for 6 years at an LPL branch office. However, in 2011, the desire to be near my family brought me back to southern California where I also joined another family, IWM Partners.
With over 18 years of experience working with LPL advisors, I offer a consistently reliable source of information and customer service for our clients. I bring my genuine desire to help people to the office every day and my attention to detail is valuable when supporting our advisors and clients. I assist with the advisors in opening new accounts and take special care in helping maintaining them because I believe our clients are equally important and all deserve the finest service. In addition, I work behind the scenes to keep the office running as efficiently as possible and serve as the go-to tech person for both clients and advisors.
In my free-time, I enjoy socializing with my five siblings and our extended family and spoiling my cats, Arora and Merlyn. I try to spend as much time as I can reading just about any book I can get ahold of and practicing various computer programming languages. I am also trying to learn Spanish and Japanese and am indulging my childhood fascination with astronomy, geology, and oceanography in self-study courses. Just like my newest passion, caring for the kitchen garden on my balcony, I am always looking to show my compassion.
