What do you enjoy most about wealth management?
Every family, every person, and every situation is unique. While there are some commonalities, it means every day presents a new and unique challenge and learning experience. When you mix that with the intimate trust a client places in you to help them achieve their goals, it makes for a wholly rewarding experience for all involved.
What’s the biggest challenge?
There is simply so much to know, and the world and the industry change fast. I take that as a challenge in a positive way – to continue to learn every day and be better both in my work and as a person.
What do you love most about being part of The Andrews Group?
Being part of a small team that works closely with one another to achieve a common goal.
What quality of yours makes you best suited to do what you do?
It’s a mix of a few – personable, curious, and I have a drive to find solutions.
How should people think about their wealth?
It’s a tool to help you achieve your goals. It’s like a vehicle to drive you to a destination – in the end, it helps you achieve what’s most important to you.
What do you love to do outside of work?
My big three, which often intertwine, are travel, good food and drinks, and live music. I also value family time and am a big sports fan. I love watching hockey, soccer, and playing golf.
What personal accomplishments are you most proud of?
I’ve lived the majority of my life – 27 years – with type 1 diabetes. It’s an invisible illness that requires an immense amount of balance and care, and I’m proud that I continue to live up to the challenge and persevere daily.
What was the most influential book you’ve read and why?
Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain. It’s a fantastic book on its own with a ton of insight (and some great quotes), but the reason it’s influential to me is that it truly represents the success someone can achieve if they put themselves out there. It sparked an entirely new career path for Bourdain. Who could have predicted that?
