What do you love most about being part of Hart Financial Group?
The people. I value them and they value me. The whole team is very good at what they do but the character of everyone who works here is what I noticed first and it’s what I appreciate the most.
What qualities of yours makes you well suited for your role at Hart Financial Group?
I am diligent, expressive and loyal. This role allows me the opportunity to use and explore these qualities. My team trusts me to get things done right, they allow me to work in a creative business environment and they listen to what I have to say.
What hobbies or interests do you have outside of work?
I enjoy spending my free time surrounded by friends. You’ll find us exploring anything and everything Austin has to offer, trying new restaurants, wine tasting, traveling, etc. I also enjoy keeping in touch with my family in Iowa and seeing them whenever I can.
If you had to choose another career what would you do and why?
I would own a vineyard. I love visiting wineries and learning about the process of making wine. Extensive travel would be a must in exploring different wines in different parts of the world!
What’s one experience you wish you could do all over again?
There isn’t anything I would do over again, but I wish I would have moved from Iowa sooner than I did. I love Iowa (Des Moines) but I would have liked to experience a few cities in my younger years before ending up in Austin – Denver, Chicago, Boston, Pittsburgh – just to name a few.
If you could live anywhere besides Austin, where would you live and why?
I thought Austin was the only place to live! In all reality, I wouldn’t choose anywhere else to live right now. If I had to leave Austin, I would likely go back to Iowa to be closer to family. Runner-up’s: Chicago and Denver.
