Before I worked in finance, I was a professional opera singer. I trained at Sam Houston State University, where I earned a Bachelor of Music Performance with a minor in voice (2004). Being a planner by nature, I soon realized my heart would always be in music — but my financial security didn’t lay in the arts. In 2010, I graduated from the McCombs School of Business at The University of Texas with a Masters of Business Administration and entered the world of finance.
In 2015, I was privileged to join Baird. Knowing the value of education in delivering great client outcomes, I completed study through the Institute for Divorce Financial Analysts to obtain the Certified Divorce Financial Analyst™ (CDFA®) designation in early 2017. In 2020 I underwent the interdisciplinary training offered by Collaborative Divorce Texas which means that I am qualified to help facilitate a Collaborative Divorce. In 2018, I also successfully earned the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®) certification.
I am a proud native Houstonian, and I enjoy my hometown’s many opportunities for adventurous eating. Outside of work, I am an enthusiastic amateur equestrian, yoga practitioner, hiker, tango dancer, globetrotter, and lover of fine whiskeys. On the weekends you can find me at Solstice Farms with my little dog Foxy Lady and my pony Chico. Fun fact! Nearly every photo on this website is one that I've captured (or been captured in) while out adventuring.
