“My path to becoming a financial consultant started early on. As a child, my father says he use to send me to school with nickel and somehow I'd return with a quarter. Somehow I always managed to find a way to attain my desires no matter how challenging they sometimes seemed.  Even back then I understood the importance of setting goals and sticking to them, and I recognized the power of keeping a budget and systematic savings. 

With the desire to help others attain their financial goals, it only seemed natural to pursue a career as a financial consultant. After graduating with an associate’s degree I began by working for a large securities firm. The firm sponsored my formal education through the American College where I attained a Fellowship. Seeking out the top advisor in the company in hopes to learn and master the art of financial success together we developed a mentorship program designed to share the knowledge with other advisors. 

Helping others identify and achieve their goals is what I love about being a Financial Consultant but in order to provide meaningful guidance without the conflicts that limited my ability to put clients first I started Highland Capital Financial Consulting. Today Highland Capital Financial Consulting is honored to be recognized by San Diego Magazine as a FIVE Star Wealth Management Firm.”
