Team Profile

As a Manager on Sequoia’s Institutional Services team, my role is to aid our advisors and clients in utilizing our Prudent Expert System®. This role includes support of the Plan Sponsor through documentation of committee meetings, developing an ERISA specific investment menu, monitoring investments through a tailored Investment Policy Statement, and record retention of key documents.

By leveraging firm resources and industry expertise, I assist the Plan Sponsor in maintaining a compliant and productive plan. My job is to provide support to the fiduciary, and streamline the overall plan operation.

I also maintain a strong focus on Participant success within the plan. This is achieved by educating Participants in group and individual one-on-one meetings, developing appropriate retirement goals, savings rates, and asset allocation, and assisting Participants with a variety of questions ranging from plan highlights, and rollovers, to current economic outlook.

My professional experience and personal passion consists of a background in client services and one on one consulting, which provides me with the skill set to assist our Plan Sponsors and Participants in making knowledgeable and informed decisions.
