After 11 years I recently decided to walk away from a successful wealth management partnership at a world class investment bank. I was paid well and had good relationships with my colleagues and clients, but I was ready for a change.

I’m incredibly grateful for my time in wealth management, and especially for all that it taught me, but sometimes we all need to step away from what is safe in order to reach for personal and professional growth.

Over the past 10 months I've spent my time consulting for a few local organizations, helping them with their marketing efforts and shaping strategy for the new year. Working as an independent contractor has been rewarding and I'm excited to continue these efforts, but ultimately I would like to find a more permanent professional home.

My objective in leaving my first career is to help add value to a business that's more closely aligned with my lifestyle and values. Wall Street culture carries many stereotypes, some positive and some negative, and I'd like to find an environment that offers a different feel than the large investment banks. As a partner on a small wealth management team I’ve been able to hone a wide range of skills over the past 11 years. From sales and marketing to operations and cost management; I was fortunate to have had a hand in all of these areas. I feel my strongest attributes are my natural business sense and ability to creatively problem solve even in highly constrained environments.

Even if you’re not currently looking to fill any positions I would love the opportunity to speak further. Whether my next home is at your company or somewhere else I am in the midst of a life transition and eager to learn from everyone that I can.
