Favorite Thing About Working With Clients

“I really enjoy helping clients navigate the complex and technical issues that can arise when running a retirement plan. These situations can be stressful but with the right approach and knowledge, they can become insightful experiences. In addition to that, I always find it enjoyable to help our clients set and exceed their goals. Whether it be increase participation, savings rates or getting plan participants in the right investments, there is joy in knowing our clients are moving the ball forward in achieving better retirement outcomes for themselves and those who depend on them.”

My Philosophy on Client Service

“My personal mantra is this ‘The best clients are the ones you already have’ because of that, I put a high focus on ensure client needs are not only met, but exceeded. In the client relationship, naturally we are leaders because of our knowledge, expertise, and role as consultant. A fundamental pillar of leadership is service and so my philosophy can be boiled down further to this – ‘how can I help?’.”

What I love About Greenspring

“I love getting to know people and establishing relationships with them. At Greenspring we have tremendous team of people who have a similar focus and mindset. Because of that our team has grown into a big family. We hold each other accountable, have each other’s backs, and celebrate one-another’s victories. When you have such a supportive environment to work (and live) in, it makes the everyday challenges and stresses much easier to handle. In addition to that, Greenspring does a tremendous job of providing the tools we employees need to be successful and then allows us (in our own unique way) deploy those resources in the market place. Put simply, they allow me to be me.”
