My Daily Goal Is to Constantly Learn and Grow

In addition to my daily responsibilities in direct people management and talent development, I partner with Bernstein’s Endowment & Foundation Advisory Services Team to enhance our impact on nonprofit communities across the country.

What inspired you to join Bernstein?

I would stay in school forever if it paid the bills! This is why, after college graduation, I made a commitment to join a firm with an ongoing training program and clear focus on continued employee development. Once my search began, Bernstein became the obvious choice. The firm has an unwavering focus and dedication to the education and development of its staff through hands-on, customized, consistent training. This commitment is unlike anything I’ve heard of in our industry,

What has inspired you to stay at Bernstein for as long as you have?

I’ve stayed at the firm because of its encouragement to use my specific skill sets to nurture, fine-tune and ignite my various passions. While my official title is Client Service Manager, I have the ability to take on additional roles and responsibilities beyond managing and developing our talented support staff in Los Angeles. Through these myriad opportunities, I’m growing as a professional every day and learning more about other parts of our business, which also makes me better at my current job. I’m gaining invaluable exposure to different careers that may be available to me in the future, while absorbing new ideas and knowledge every day.

What passions do you pursue outside of work?

I’m lucky to have the majority of my family here in Los Angeles with me, so much of my free time is spent with them. As a college athlete, being on the move is how I de-stress. That’s why I’m constantly staying active, either playing sports or trying my hand at new workouts. My biggest passion outside of Bernstein is working with vulnerable youth. Currently, I am a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) for foster youth in Los Angeles. I’m very grateful to also work closely with CASA of Los Angeles and share many of my Bernstein resources with them.
