At Wealth Management Group, LLC, we are proud of our team. We’d like to share a little more about each team member in a series of posts.

Recent research shows that American adults change jobs an average of 12 times during their lifetime. (1) Sometimes those job changes are drastic and are vastly different from previous roles. Other times, the transition is a natural progression to the next step, building on your knowledge and experience and providing a new opportunity to use your expertise and fulfill your dreams. That’s exactly how I found my way into my career as a financial advisor.

First Steps

I started my career as a tax professional after graduating from the University of Oklahoma with a bachelor’s degree in accounting. After 20 years of experience as a CPA, I began working as a financial advisor as well, earning my Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) designation. Prior to taking on the additional role of financial advisor, I not only served my clients at tax time but worked with them throughout the year to help them plan for the future. I have a strong passion for helping my clients be proactive with their finances and working as their advocate. Therefore, I decided to merge my tax background with my financial planning expertise to help my clients grow their wealth and provide for greater financial security.

My Role Today

At Wealth Management Group, I work as both CPA and CFP®, serving individuals and small businesses, not only preparing income tax returns but also developing a comprehensive financial plan that examines every aspect of my clients’ financial positions, strategies, goals, and growth opportunities. My goal for each client is for them to experience confidence on their financial journey through my extensive tax knowledge and trustworthy guidance.

As in any profession, there are tasks that excite and tasks that drain. As you can imagine, any job in the financial industry includes plenty of paperwork. While paperwork is a necessity, it can take me away from what I most enjoy doing, interacting with my clients and helping them build a custom-designed financial plan. Thankfully, I love my job too much to let paperwork get in the way. There’s nothing more fulfilling than knowing I’m making a difference in people’s lives financial situation and achieving results that help bring joy and peace of mind to my clients.
