Accessible, knowledgeable and experienced, I am committed to building and maintaining strong client relationships. I am passionate about what I do and I bring that passion to helping every client make what may be the most important financial decisions of their lives.
I am a global citizen who understands the value that hard work and proper planning provides in securing generational wealth. Generational wealth is the cornerstone of the American dream. The tools at Merrill Lynch Wealth Management help clients realize this dream.
I began my career at Merrill in 2017 in the investment center at Merrill Edge as an investment specialist on the service and trade desk. I provided investment knowledge and routed trades for more than 200 clients weekly. Before joining Merrill, I was an international English literacy consultant for international schools in Dakar, Senegal and a local English as a Second Language (ESL) instructor for foreign professionals in Chicago.
I joined Merrill Lynch Wealth Management in 2019 as a financial advisor. My investment/trade, sociocultural, and finance knowledge coupled with a Bachelors of Science in Finance from Hampton University in Hampton, Virginia and an Masters of Science in Language, Literacy, and Culture from the University of Illinois Chicago, gives me the tools needed to advise clients through disciplined long-term investment strategies and financial goal achievement.
When I am outside of the office, I am organizing and participating in events in the Austin community on Chicago’s west side where I have called home my entire life. I am financially active in the Tau Gamma Omega chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., The Loretto Hospital Community Advisory Council and I am a lifetime member of the Chicago Westside NAACP.
