I always tell people that I came to Florida after a series of unfortunate events and it was the best thing to ever happen to me. I moved here from San Diego in 2011 after getting into a car accident and wanting to be closer to my family. I still love where I grew up, but I wouldn't change one thing about the weaving road that I took to get here, in Florida and with Edward Jones. I am passionate about my family and about my business, and I truly believe that everything happens for a reason.
