Favorite Thing About Working With Clients

“Serving as a financial advocate for clients so they feel capable, confident, and empowered in making the best decisions for themselves, their families, and those who depend on them.”

My Philosophy On Client Service

“My philosophy of client service is twofold: Treat others how you would like to be treated, and put yourself in the best position to have options. We ask our clients to be particularly vulnerable when sharing their personal lives with us, and oftentimes, it is an emotional experience. Our responsibility in protecting that trust and exercising empathy is paramount, and our commitment in honoring that responsibility must be unwavering.”

What I Love About Greenspring

“Greenspring cultivates a unique sense of pride and selflessness that is rare in the financial services industry. Creating a culture where employees feel supported and are encouraged to pursue their personal and professional passions takes tremendous work from dedicated leadership who recognize the value in placing its people first. That mentality permeates through everything we do, and it has a profound and lasting impact on the client experience.”
