The issues in Riverside that I care about most are: The lack of high paying jobs for young professionals and the development of downtown Riverside.

I am: 30.

I’m a young professional at: Pacific Advisors. I get involved in my community through the following organization(s): The Unforgettables Foundation, The American Heart Association, The Greater Riverside Chamber of Commerce, and The Mission Inn Foundation.

I’m proud of these achievements: Board Member Volunteer of the Year 2015, The Unforgettables Foundation.

I am a happy resident in the City of: Riverside.

My career goals are to: Grow my financial advisory firm in Riverside.

My professional motto is:“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”

My advice to other YoPros is: Networking is the key to a successful career.

When I’m not working or volunteering, you can find me: Hiking, running, obstacle course racing, lifting,snowboarding, wakeboarding, surfing, mountain biking, and playing outdoors.

I joined PICK because: I wanted to get more involved in Riverside and was told it was a great place to start as a young professional.

PICK is awesome because: The friends I have made will last a lifetime.I maximize my PICK membership by: Sitting on the Board of Directors, being on the Professional Development Committee and attending all of the events my schedule allows me to.

The issues in Riverside that I care about most are: The lack of high paying jobs for young professionals and the development of downtown Riverside.
