Upon achieving her Life, Accident & Health license as well as her FINRA Series 6, 63 & 26, Julie was promoted to the role of our firm's Compliance Specialist in November 2003 and obtained her Series 7 in April 2004.

Julie guides every candidate through the recruiting process, and into the Firm's thorough training program. Then in 2010, was further challenged by developing the Operations Department, focusing on driving new account setup, interviewing, hiring and training key administrative personnel, and consulting with Advisors on utilizing systems and technology within their respective practices.
