"I joined 21st Century Financial because I was attracted by the firm's commitment to put clients first. Our financial professionals develop a strong relationship with each client. Then the firm’s unique discovery process allows us to take a comprehensive, view of our client's total financial picture to develop customized strategies.  I believe this contributes to the longevity of our client relationships."

"For decades I served as an executive and senior manager in Corporate America. My transition to Financial Services was truly a leap of faith. As VP of Sales for our firm, I discovered that in Financial Services my gender was an asset as was my experience in management. Financial Services can offer rich opportunities to professionals of both genders, especially women who leverage their insight, listening and communication skills. Our firm’s holistic approach to knowing our clients and growing and protecting their assets with personalized strategies truly sets us apart."

“The ability to build strong relationships and trust are key attributes of exceptional financial professionals. As a recruiter and financial professional, I look for people with a strong work ethic, high integrity and a sincere desire to help others. Coaching and mentoring financial professionals and managers to develop trusting relationships with their clients is key. Equally important is empowering financial professionals to motivate their clients to take action to protect those they love. This is why I wake up every day excited about what I do.”

"I joined 21st Century Financial approximately five years ago with an expectation that my successful career in Financial Services would be by expanded. Today, serving as a VP, sales manager and recruiter for the firm, this is the case.  Our financial professionals are expected to know their clients well and build long-term relationships with them. My commitment to knowing my clients and positively impacting the safety and security of their families is part of my personal mission statement that sits on my desk. I believe this has helped me to become a trusted financial professional who offers a broad and holistic approach to my clients' financial well-being."

"I’m a U.S. Army Veteran, having served in the 20th SFG (A) and the 226th ASG Desert Shield/Storm. I joined 21st Century Financial because I enjoyed the culture and the corporate focus of giving back to communities to make a positive impact on people’s lives. Throughout my military career I found serving as a mentor deeply rewarding. Today, I enjoy the same privilege of coaching financial professionals to discover their talent and attain success at our firm. I am focused on acquiring talent new to our industry and joining with experienced financial professionals seeking a world-class platform and culture to call home."
