Why I Became a Financial Advisor
I grew up right here in southern Maine, one of five children. My parents divorced when I was twelve and I watched them both struggle personally and financially. My mother had been a stay-at-home mom and watching her start over again was a life lesson for me. I realized how important education, financial planning and being my own advocate can be. I was naturally strong in math but as a girl in the mid-1980s, I didn’t see a career path in it for me. I decided to become a teacher and with that in mind put myself through college. Yet, as it often does, life changed my plans. After graduating college, working in banking, getting married, having two children, and owning my own business, I stopped for a moment to reevaluate where I was and where I wanted to be. That was when I found Dave Robinson and Robinson Financial Advisors. He offered me the opportunity to put my strengths together, my math skills, interest in economics and finance, business experience and the teacher in me. Over the past 10 plus years, I have loved coming to work each day. I feel honored that our clients allow me to help them reach their goals and I hope I can help the next generation of girls believe there are many career paths out there for the “math” girls.
