Financial Advisor
I have always been fascinated by people. I was, and continue to be, very interested in motivation, behaviour, perception etc. I ultimately wanted to understand people better, so when I was choosing a university major, psychology was an easy choice. I became interested in finance with my first interaction.

When I graduated I focused my job search in two areas: finance and HR. The first appealing job offer I received was in finance (my first choice!). My career encompasses both areas of interest, finance and people.
I need to understand people as much as the markets to help people reach their financial goals
