What brought me here...

My first forays into financial services were with firms that paid commissions for the sale of products. I sought out a better way to deliver financial advice, free of the conflicts of interest inherent in commission-based sales. I worked as an Investment Specialist at Charles Schwab before completing the requirements to become a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM professional in 2007. I joined the Navigoe team out of a desire to be part of a full service financial advisory firm, dedicated to delivering world class wealth management advice.

Why I chose this profession...

I come from a family of educators. Both of my siblings, my mom, as well as numerous uncles, aunts and cousins are teachers or administrators. My academic interests took me in a different direction. I found early on that I had a deep interest in finance and economics. While a Finance major at USC, I realized that my desire to educate and help people was equally strong. I guess this apple didn’t fall too far from the family tree. So much of what we do, as financial advisers, is educate and help clients make good decisions.
