I graduated from the University of Maryland, R.H. Smith School of Business with a degree in International Business. The first five years of my career were spent in the financial industry at T. Rowe Price and AXA Advisors. I have excelled as an individual contributor and as a manager. At T. Rowe Price, I managed a team of 12, which ranked as the best performing team during my last quarter at T. Rowe Price; they were also the least tenured. At AXA Advisors, I was the Branch Operations Manager and oversaw all operational aspects of the branch including HR, budgets, expenses, general functionality, compliance, performance management, etc. The branch was a top-10 performing branch at the time I left and housed over 100 advisors. I have my Series 7, 24, and 63 FINRA licenses. I currently live in Maryland, but I am moving to California/San Diego in the next few weeks. I am open to moving to an entire different field of work and trust that my experience over the last five will make me successful in whatever industry it is in. I also have a lot to offer on the creativity side of things. I am a painter, sculptor, musician, guitarist, composer, and photography. I have never been "paid" for my work in these fields, but I have extensive experience in them and would love to spend more time using these skills.
