As a Client Service Administrator at Paracle, I am responsible for facilitating day-to-day tasks that are time sensitive. Administration of financial plans and investment portfolios can be overwhelming, and my job helps to provide our families with more time in their life by taking care of the details for them.

Why did you choose to start working at Paracle?

I call it kismet. I was looking for a new job and my previous boss recommended that I reach out to his friend EJ at Paracle. I came to the office with the hopes of making a new contact in the financial industry and a month later I ended up with a job offer. I couldn’t be happier to work for a company with such incredible people and values.

What do you enjoy most about serving others?

I enjoy making a positive difference in someone’s day. Life is complicated enough, if my work can assuage some concern or free up time in a client or co-worker’s day, I’ll do whatever I can to make that happen.

What’s the best part about being a member of the Paracle team?

The best part of being a member of the Paracle team is getting to work with such amazing people every day. Because there is a strong foundation of trust and care, we can work together to provide our clients with the tools they need to achieve their financial goals and wishes.

Simple, honest, and inquisitive are some of our core values. Which one stands out most to you and why?

I am a naturally inquisitive person. I love learning about people and the world at large. I believe that curiosity allows us to continue exploring and growing. As technology and the financial industry continue to involve, Paracle’s inquisitiveness allows us to continue making relevant decisions with our clients’ best interests in mind.

Why did you choose your prop?

My props are my palette and a paintbrush. I really enjoy making art, especially gifts that I can give to my friends and family. It’s something that I can do alone to relax, or it can be a fun activity to do with others. The wonderful thing about art is that you can make anything your mind can imagine, and the final product doesn’t need to look perfect to be great.

What else do you do like to do for fun?

I enjoy travelling to new places to experience new cultures and cuisines. I love going to museums, reading, listening to comedy/ true crime podcasts, yoga, running, skiing and spending time with my friends, family and dog.

If you could trade places with any person or movie character for a day, who would it be and why?

I’d want to trade places with Wonder Woman because it would be awesome to be a female superhero for a day. I’d use her special abilities to help others, fly in the Invisible Plane and put her Golden Lasso of Truth to good use. What could be cooler?
