I used to help people with their physical health, and now I get to help people with their financial health.”
He also developed his love of teaching while working in the medical field. “As a Registered Nurse, a very large and important part of the role is focused on patient education. Education is just as critical in the financial sector. I have loved partnering with with non-profit organizations because it has allowed me to continue my love of teaching and provided a great platform to communicate financial principles to my community.”
