Favorite Thing About Working With Clients

“Finding the ‘Aha!’ moments. Coming from a family of educators, the importance of understanding a topic or issue at the most basic level can never be underestimated. It is our role to create those ‘Aha!’ moments through our thoughts, communications, and actions. Our role should be one of educator and thought leader with the goal of higher understanding for our clients and colleagues.”

My Philosophy on Client Service

“Every client interaction is an opportunity to learn, both for us and for them. Learning and understanding are fundamental to being successful in our industry.”

What I love About Greenspring

“Greenspring has a defined mission statement and core values to guide everyone here towards success – our team lives these values everyday. We, as a firm, acknowledge those who go above and beyond and we all strive together to improve the lives of our clients and colleagues.”
