When did you join the NOFG team?

Assisting clients with their accounts, managing the movement of money/trades, helping the advisors onboard new clients and make sure various accounts have the required documentation. Increasingly my role will involve portfolio construction/analysis.
What do you enjoy most about your role/work?
Having the opportunity to learn more about financial planning/wealth management everyday.
What do clients seem to appreciate most about you?
Clients seem to appreciate my timeliness and being thorough. I believe that if you are going to do something, you might as well give 100%. In addition, I like to think that I communicate effectively and am approachable.
Have you ever won an award? If so, what was it for?
I made the dean’s list every semester I was completing my undergraduate degree at the University of St. Thomas.
How do you spend your time away from work?
I strongly value my relationships, so much of my time is spent with friends and family. I am Minnesota sports fan and watch mostly the Vikings but will turn on other sports occasionally. I grew up making summer trips up to Northern Minnesota/Wisconsin and love being out on the lake or at a cabin. I also enjoy trying new restaurants as I spent much of my early working life in restaurants and love the atmosphere/supporting small businesses.
Do you have a favorite…sports team, show, movie or book?
