Director of Bilingual Communications (Spanish)

I started my career in 2019 as it aligned with my values and mission to help others. I enjoy helping my clients set financial order to their lives, and I consider many of them family due to the relationships we have built. In my free time, I enjoy reading non fictional books, watching CSI shows, and spending time with my wife. My goal is to help the Hispanic community get the right mentorship and tools needed to be successful and thrive in this industry.

Director of Licensing & Recruiting

I started my career in financial services in 2022. Financial literacy has always been important to me. I enjoy teaching my clients ways they can incorporate life insurance into their financial strategy to create generational wealth. I also understand the power of relationships, which is why this industry is perfect for me. My goal is to expand upon the foundation that's been built and pay it forward creating for others and their posterity.
