- Entrepreneur/Business Owner
As a business owner, my daily leadership experience comes from simply working with my clients to create and implement their investment strategies, income plans, and retirement goals. My clients look to me for my guidance and expertise to help navigate the financial world we live in.
I work in a male dominated industry and am so proud to be part of it. It’s fun doing something not many women do and I love inspiring younger women to seek opportunities in fields that historically “weren’t for them.”
I run a blog specifically designed to help those who are not yet ready to work with a financial professional but still need financial advice. The majority of my readers are millennials, but I often times hear from older clients and acquaintances who regularly read the blog.
I graduated from Skyview High School in 2009 and have worked with the school’s Business Professionals of America (BPA) chapter ever since. I enjoy helping students explore new areas of the business word and discover and develop talents and skills they never knew they had.
I serve on the Skyview Business Department’s board of directors. Business and the soft business skills that students learn in the high school’s business department are so valuable to their future success. I am passionate about helping future generations excel in business, especially young women.
I serve as the treasurer for MAFE (Montana Association for Female Executives) and have enjoyed the group so much over the past couple years. It is a great group of women who work hard and encourage one another.
How I Want to Participate in PowerHouse
I enjoy speaking to groups of students (high school) about all aspects of the business world, but specifically about the value of soft skills, the importance of responsibility and self starting, good financial stewardship, and the need to be an informed citizen.
I’ve previously spoken to groups on topics involving investing, saving and current market & economic outlooks.
I would love to be a mentor to young women considering the financial industry. When I started, there weren’t many women in the industry and the ones that were weren’t interested in helping. To have had a young woman who had been where I was and could encourage me and walk with me through some of the early struggles would have been so valuable.
