Favorite Thing About Working With Clients

“Coming from a lower middle class background, I truly enjoy providing education and coaching to employees that do not understand the best ways to utilize their company sponsored retirement plan.”

My Philosophy on Client Service

“We are in the service business and I have always used the expression, ‘ask the next question’ to truly understand the issue/problem. Never settle for let’s just get it fixed. When a client has an issue it is our responsibility to do three things: 1) fix the problem, 2) determine the reason for the error and 3) implement procedures the ensure it does not happen again.”

What I love About Greenspring

“That our firm embraces our core purpose of improving lives by helping people make better decisions for themselves and those who depend on them. All employees follow this approach when considering how we service our clients and our community.”
