AMBASSADOR SPOTLIGHT
What are you currently most excited about with your work/career? There are many things I am excited about at Security National Wealth Management. What I'm most excited about is helping our clients attain the retirement they dream of. Those that plan for that time in their life and work with a professional will reap the benefit of a well-deserved retirement.

The upcoming holidays are also a great time of year with gatherings and sharing. Security National Bank does a lot of great things in our community and it always peaks during this magical time of year.

Besides being an Ambassador, what Chamber event, meeting, or other activity is your favorite? The Golf Classic and Annual Dinner are my two favorite large events. I also enjoy the ribbon cuttings that include tours of their business.

What is your motto or favorite quote? Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you respond to it. - Lou Holtz
