What do you enjoy most about being part of BlueSky?

There’s a lot of minutiae and complexity surrounding capital markets, the tax code, the legal system, and myriad other things we navigate all the time for our clients.
It’s a great feeling to research and solve problems for clients so they can remain focused on their life goals while we’re working on the details.

What does “improving the quality of our clients’ lives” mean to you?

We like to challenge many of our clients to think outside of their status quo and develop a vision for their life and legacy. Our recommendations can involve taking fairly significant actions (i.e., buying or selling real estate), but all recommendations revolve around a customized vision of their future that we’ve helped our clients imagine.

What keeps you busy when you’re not working?

I like to spend time with my four children, play complex board games, and edit video. In 2014, we developed a motto for our family to set goals for our homeschooled children, and it applies well to how we aspire to prioritize our own activities.
