WHAT DO YOU WANT CLIENTS TO KNOW ABOUT YOU AND YOUR STRENGTHS?
I believe we all have specific talents we are meant to share with the world. I am a bit more on the altruistic side, so putting my clients first and doing what is in their best interest comes naturally.
WHAT MOTIVATES YOU TO WORK HARD?
I am passionate about education and am happy to do my part in advancing post-secondary education in my community.
HOW HAS YOUR BACKGROUND AND CHILDHOOD INFLUENCED YOUR CAREER?
I am a third-generation native Tucsonan and a graduate of the University of Arizona. I graduated with student loan debt and did not feel I had the proper guidance regarding funding my college education.
WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE ASCENSION PLANNING TO BE KNOWN FOR?
I come from a humble background and was the first in my family to graduate from college. I am committed to helping underserved members of my community do the same.
