Auburn University Montgomery, and specifically the department of Economics and that curriculum, really prepared me to work in the field of finance because of the open curriculum, the education of the staff and faculty, and because of the real-world experiences that the faculty and staff have.
My position now is wealth strategy associate. I work for two financial advisors, and we manage a little over $450 million in assets. In between that, I’m actually studying to become a financial advisor, which involves taking securities tests and having certifications that you have to have to essentially manage people’s money. I definitely enjoy what I do every day and look to stay in it for a long period of time.
