Operations Manager & Portfolio Manager
Toth Financial Advisory Corp
Professional accomplishment of which you are most proud: Obtaining my Series 65 and managing the retirements of 30 client families after just three years at Toth Financial Advisory Corp while also being a “go-to” Operations team member.
Most significant charity work/community involvement: I have been a Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals committee member for nearly 2 1/2 years, I was invited to join the American Red Cross National Capital Region Loudoun Leadership Council over a year ago, and most recently asked to help and be on the first Board of the Girl Power Foundation as their treasurer’s assistant.
Personal background and family information: I was born and raised near Akron, Ohio. I have an older brother and sister-in-law, and younger sister, which makes me the middle child. I come from a close family, so moving to Virginia just over three years ago wasn’t necessarily easy to do. I moved into Leesburg not knowing anyone but quickly made new friends and embraced life in Virginia. I am now a homeowner in Leesburg but make it a point to visit Ohio as often as I can.
Person you admire the most and why: I admire my parents the most. They gave up so much in life to give the three of their children all the opportunities that they possibly could. They made education and faith a high priority while also encouraging us to do whatever sports and/or extracurricular activities we wanted (and sometimes didn’t want to do). Most importantly, though, they gave us an amazing support system and always pushed us to do more than we thought we could and to work hard.
One piece of advice for other young professionals: Never settle for less than you want (within reason). I didn’t settle when given three job offers out of college and don’t regret waiting six more months for the opportunity of a lifetime to present itself to me.
Favorite app/program on your smartphone: The Houzz app because it allows me to collect photos of a secret architecture/home design passion of mine.
