I grew up as a NASA space brat surrounded by engineers and astronauts. These men weren’t just colleagues – astronauts’ lives depended on successful missions and engineers felt a deep personal commitment to get it right. That childhood experience led me to approach most things from an engineering perspective coupled with the desire to get it right.
With an aptitude for math and science, life’s path led me to a 19-year career as a CPA where I acquired knowledge and experience in tax, estates, and accounting for individuals and corporations. With prompting from Mike Davis, RCG’s founder, I launched my career as a wealth advisor. I’ve stayed on this trajectory since then and continue to employ an engineering approach with a personal commitment to each client’s success.
In engineering, you never finish evolving, innovating, and improving. Likewise, in the world of wealth and investing we are continually learning and improving. The investment tools we have today didn’t exist 30 years ago. Today’s computers enable academics to unlock new insights about the market. I am on a mission to continually improve the value RCG provides to clients.
