After growing up in Plantation, Florida, I did concierge and administrative assistant work for real estate companies and a private school while raising my family. Early on, I was front desk manager and concierge at a high-end Fort Lauderdale condominium building, an experience that sparked my interest in working with people.
When my three children were younger, I became an administrative assistant at Charlotte Preparatory School in Port Charlotte. I played a significant role in school operations and helped create policies and ideas that quickly accelerated enrollment. I loved working with the kids and their families, helping direct them in finding scholarships and planning their children’s education. Education is a huge passion of mine, and so I’ll remain involved as a parent and board member.
Outside work, I love to craft, refinish furniture, and hang out with my children and husband, Vinny, at the pool or beach. My parents have been my greatest influences. My father has one of the strongest work ethics I’ve seen. My mother is a determined woman who made smart, strategic career moves. She has always been there for me; she is my hero. From the moment I started the hiring process here, every person I met said, “This is not just a job, it’s a family.” Every position I’ve enjoyed involved pointing people in the right direction. Now I aim to help direct them with their financial growth. I enjoy helping people find what they need, and have a way of making them feel comfortable. I’m an outside-the-box thinker and find a way to make things happen.
