WANTED A CAREER HELPING PEOPLE
     I began my career with Northwestern Mutual by chance. I was looking for an internship in financial planning with earning potential while I was at the University of California, Irvine. I wanted to find a company who would train me well and provide the opportunity to actually work with people. The idea of building my own practice from the ground up as an intern alongside career representatives while getting investment and insurance licensed appealed to me.  It was only after I became an intern that I found out Northwestern Mutual was named as having one of America's "Top 10 Internships." It’s now been 20+ consecutive years (1997-2019) according to Vault Magazine 2019.

EARLY STARTER BUILDS A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS
     After graduating early from University of California, Irvine, I converted to a full-time Financial Representative contract. During my first year full-time with Northwestern Mutual, after getting off to a fast start, I moved my practice home to Hawaii in December 2005.  

      I’m grateful to have been selected for a leadership track. My past roles started with our L.E.A.D. program, which led to being the College Unit Director, then a Field Director for our office. L.E.A.D. is a leadership program designed to identify and develop successful individuals who are motivated to help others succeed.  Candidates are invited by their Managing Partner or Managing Director.  Since the internship was great to me, I started an internship program in our Hawaii office to pay it forward. Proud to see how our internship has produced many of our top full-time Financial Representatives today. Currently, I am a Growth Director with the  Hawaii Group of Northwestern Mutual and am responsible for recruiting and developing new full-time representatives.

     Today, my team and I enjoy helping attorneys, physicians, business owners, seniors, and families meet their financial goals. We serve our clients by providing strategic, comprehensive advice and help educate them about wealth management strategies and solutions.
