Personalized Strategies for Managing & Protecting Wealth, Planning, Research, & 401k Geek, HRMA/SHRM Volunteer
Growing up in the small town of Glorieta, a passion for community and a true appreciation for service were instilled in me at an early age. Raised in a village that was poor monetarily but wealthy in traditions, family, and community, I was inspired throughout my life by my parents. Both educators and active in the community as leaders, coaches, and as “majordomos” for the village church (Majordomos is a Northern New Mexico term for “care takers”). Continuing in the blessings of our family and community, I followed my brother in-law into military service spanning over five years. When I was able, I took a second job and save a small fortune for my future return. Throughout my life, I understood and found success in the value of a “hard earned dollar” and the effort (and sacrifices) it took to keep it.
