I am an Associate Financial Advisor supporting Len Gargagliano and Gary Veltidi in the Park Cities office. I graduated from California State University, East Bay in 2016 with a Bachelor's Degree in Finance. I currently maintain my series 6 and 63 FINRA registrations, in addition to holding a Texas Life, Accident, & Health license. In my role as Director of Operations, I serve as an underwriting liaison, guiding clients through the application and implmenting process for insurance, annuity, and investment solutions. I also manage account transactions, servicing, and any other client requests or questions.

I grew up in San Jose, CA; moved to the DFW metroplex in 2013 and have created a home in Irving, TX with my fiancé and two cats. I am an avid runner, having completed two marathons and countless half marathons, 10k races, and 5k races. I also enjoys skiing, rock climbing, crafting, cooking and reading. I am currently working on obtaining my series 7 FINRA registration so I can further assist clients with general securities investment needs!
