What do you love most about being part of Hart Financial Group?
Since day one everyone at HFG has been so accepting, welcoming and warm. I enjoy the comradery and I truly feel that I am a part of a team of people that loves what they do. I enjoy helping the clients and the diversity in how we can do that. In our industry, there are so many ways that we can make and help provide our clients with a better way of life and we are dedicated to always putting the client’s interest first.
What qualities of yours makes you well suited for your role at Hart Financial Group?
I am reliable, resourceful, compassionate and conscientious. These qualities allow me to give the client impeccable service while sincerely understanding their needs and goals.
What hobbies or interests do you have outside of work?
I enjoy spending time with my family and fortunately most of them live in Austin. A typical weekend for us would include a sporting event (depending on which kid is playing what), having family over for a BBQ or dinner, playing games or watching football. I also enjoy going to live concerts, watching movies and fishing.
If you had to choose another career what would you do and why?
I would choose to be an Occupational Therapist and work with children. I love the idea of helping people (especially children), whether disadvantaged or recovering from an accident, learn to live their best life.
What’s one experience you wish you could do all over again?
I would love to go back to when my children were younger and experiencing certain life moments for the very first time. When I see pictures of them, I always say “Can I just go back to that time for just one day?”.
If you could live anywhere besides Austin, where would you live and why?
This is hard for me to answer because I would love to live on the beach but also near the mountains. I have heard the Carolinas have the best of both worlds, I hope to find out one day.
