I was born and raised in East Aurora, NY the youngest of three girls, my father instilled in me at a very young age that working hard was not an option but a requirement, while also making sure that I had every opportunity to be whoever I wanted to be. I am a huge animal lover, so my dream was to become a veterinarian, but when I started down that path, something just didn’t fit. I knew I had to find something that spoke to my strengths, so I switched gears and went back to school in my mid-20’s where I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management at Medaille College.
I took on several different roles with large corporations throughout my career; Relationship Management with BMW Financial Services, Quality Assurance Analysis for a local remarketing firm. But I knew I wanted to find a smaller company, smaller client base, but one that allowed me to devote more time and attention to the clients and the company. Somewhere that I could truly make a difference and deliver a personal touch.
In April of 2012, I interviewed with Buffalo Financial (formerly Beck Financial Group) and everything began to click. I genuinely love my job, As Director of Operations, my main goal is to ensure every client receives top-notch service, not just when they come in to for the first appointment, but everyday thereafter. From setting up 529 accounts for children and grandchildren, to helping take the stress and uncertainty out of retirement, to ensuring the office and everyone in it is thriving and growing. I have definitely found my right seat on the bus!
When not at the office, you can usually find me with family and friends, I am a mom to my beautiful daughter Liviana and my two Boston Terriers, Romeo and Louis, We love spending time outside, so camping, hiking, bike riding, and going to the beach (during the 2 months of Buffalo we call summer) are where you can find me most. I am also an avid reader, a massive Buffalo Bills fan, and when I have time, I love to cook.
