What inspired you to join Bernstein?
After graduating college, 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 I started as a Client Service Associate, I then spent a few years managing our Los Angeles office. During those years, I had the ability to take on additional roles and responsibilities beyond managing and developing our talented support staff. These myriad opportunities led me to my current position, where I engage with purpose-driven organizations to support them in fulfilling their mission and furthering their legacy. While working with organizations serving the community, I continue to grow as a professional every day while absorbing new ideas and knowledge.
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. I am 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.
