While studying to complete my MBA, I realized that my passion was to help individuals and families with their personal finances. I enjoy teaching my clients about money to help them achieve and secure their financial independence. I learn about their situations by developing a deep relationship with my clients. I love working with my clients to develop a unique plan so they can achieve their goals and enjoy the journey. My mission is to empower my clients with the knowledge and strategies they need to make informed decisions about their financial future.
After completing my MBA, I started as a Financial Advisor in 1999. To achieve the high standards and commitment as a Financial Advisor, I became a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM in 2004. I had the opportunity and was excited to join the team with Elaine and Scott Manley in 2014. Throughout my career, I have worked with diverse clients, ranging from high-net-worth young professionals looking to build wealth to retirees wanting to preserve and grow their assets.
I was born in Jakarta, Indonesia and many of my family and friends still live there. I married my husband Chris, whom I had known since we were young. Chris had completed college in the US, and we decided to move to the US to start our careers and family. Coming to the US helped me grow, learn new things, and start a career as a Financial Advisor.
I enjoy my daily afternoon walk and hike. I love to travel, and I start planning my trips by finding the restaurants with the best food and then planning the rest of the trip around that. Recently, my children and I earned our advanced diving certification, and we can join my husband, Chris to explore new diving trips, especially in my home country of Indonesia.
