Celebrating Ingalill’s Retirement
As many of you may already know, Ingalill on our team, is from Sweden. She is looking forward to traveling there to visit with her family and friends and has decided she would prefer to not worry about a return date. Therefore, Ingalill will be retiring on June 15, 2021.
We work hard every day to help our clients reach their goals, including retiring, and take great pleasure knowing we have also worked to help Ingalill reach her financial goal of retirement. We all wish her happiness and success as she enters the next phase of her life.
You have likely talked with her many times, as she is the friendly voice clients have come to appreciate when calling our office. Ingalill schedules client appointments and assists clients when they call with questions. We thought you might enjoy learning more about her background and her plans for the future.
Ingalill was Born in a Small Town in Sweden
Ingalill was born in the small town of Uddevalla, along the western coast of Sweden. It is about a 90-minute drive south of Oslo, the capital of Norway.
Ingalill also spent part of her youth in Gothenburg, the second largest city in Sweden and Stromstad, which is located between Uddevalla and Oslo.
In 1988, Ingalill came to visit a friend in Portland, Oregon, and decided to stay. That is where she met the love of her live, John Van Meter. They had the choice in 1992 to move to the Bay Area or Texas, for job opportunities. Fortunately for us, they chose to move to San Jose.
In 1995, a good friend of hers was working at Waddell & Reed and told her there was a position available. Ingalill started working for several different advisors and we have been very grateful she chose to join our team in 2014. Since that time, she has been an important part of the Financial Journey Partners team and likely the person you talk with when you call our office.
Ingalill’s last day of work is June 15, 2021. She has the honor of being the first team member at Financial Journey Partners to retire. We are very happy we were able to help her reach her financial goal.
Recently, the Financial Journey Partners team celebrated Ingalill’s retirement with a fun day at the new Top Golf in San Jose.
Ingalill is looking forward to spending more time with her brothers and sisters, extended family, and friends in Sweden. Most of them are living on the Swedish west coast, which has a wonderful archipelago and is a perfect place for summer visits. She is also looking forward to golfing, hiking and while in the USA, singing in a Swedish choir.
Thanks for everything Ingalill – and we wish you a very happy and healthy retirement!
