          As the Branch Manager for the UBS San Antonio, Waco and Bryan/College Station offices,  my passion is on helping our talented financial advisors deliver the full range of the firm's capabilities, expertise, and solutions to our valued clients. 

          I have over 25 years of experience in the financial services industry and have been at UBS since 2004. Prior to my current role, I was responsible for risk management and supervisory guidance for the West Division of UBS Wealth Management. This role provided me the opportunity to partner with some of our top financial advisors and their management teams with a focus on finding creative solutions to meet the needs of our clients. 

          When away from the office I enjoy traveling with my family, visiting national parks, mountain biking, and hiking.
