Life does not always go according to plan. I know this from both the perspective of a financial planner and also from my personal life. Determination, dedication and and a goal-oriented mentality can help achieve not only a person's goals (whether financial, physical, or educational), but can also assist others further down their own paths. As a thirty-one year old born-and-raised Howard County resident, my primary focus is helping others in my community move towards achieving their financial goals.
At the age of sixteen, I began working in grocery, and by eighteen I'd begun working as a journeyman butcher. Graduating Mt. St. Joseph's High School in 2000, I was awarded many scholarships and awards in the Math and Computer Science fields – including schools such as Carnegie Mellon (Andrew Carnegie Award), University of Maryland – College Park, UMBC, and Rennsalaer Polytechnic Institute (Rennsalaer Medal). Due to financial hardships and life necessity to work, I withdrew from college and focused solely on working. Over the next decade, I used my job to provide for myself and pay my way through post-secondary schooling. I strengthened my knowledge of mathematics, finance, and strategic problem solving – remaining active in my local community. Additionally, my knowledge allowed me to use my time and resources to help friends and acquaintances plan and organize their finances, showing them ways to lessen debt and accumulate wealth.
