Compliance Manager

In my role at The Planning Center, I strive to protect all stakeholders by cultivating an environment that allows all to feel safe and secure. By promoting an attitude of continuous learning, protecting the essence of the organization’s mission, values, and culture, and nurturing the firm through expertise and education, I navigate the organization through complex legal and regulatory environments in the name of protecting TPC and our clients.

Outside of TPC, you can find me in a gym or at a ball field watching my nieces and nephews compete. Otherwise, in pursuit of my commitment to lifelong learning, I am likely enrolled in a class of some sort and thus spend a substantial amount of my free time in study mode. When I am free, my favorite hobbies are real estate development, structuring new deals, or catching a football game.
