I joined Affiliated Advisors by chance and a stroke of good luck! Initially, I had not considered a career in the financial industry because I thought it was not accessible to me. I have a background in culinary arts, so I started with no experience or financial literacy. However, I soon learned that many of our advisors and my peers come from all sorts of backgrounds and found their homes, and most importantly, their freedom in Financial Services. Affiliated Advisors has given me the opportunity to do the same.
In my role, I get to support the people who support you. I also get the pleasure of planning our many events. Since so many of us work remotely and all over the nation, being able to create a moment for us to all come together, connect, and feel human makes me feel so proud. I love that our team are people-centric and dedicated to providing personal and genuine assistance to our advisors. They are the most incredible people, and we get to help them achieve success every step of the way. I like to think that watching our Advisors succeed must be what it feels like to watch your team make it to the Superbowl!
I was born in Malaysia and lived in many different countries when I was young until my family finally settled in Texas. In hindsight, I think my childhood, as crazy as it was moving everywhere, has greatly and positively impacted my worldview. I have been fortunate to interact with people of all backgrounds and found ways to connect with all of them.
Now I live in New York City, and it is the most insane city I've ever lived in, but there's so much heart here, and I am very happy that I can call it my home. In my free time, I love to bake, spend time with friends and loved ones, or get lost in a good book. As a former dancer and theatre kid, I also enjoy attending as many live performances or shows as I can.
