I am originally from South Cotabato in the Philippines, where I was raised by my culture’s standards of kindness, generosity, and hospitality. I believe these values must be woven into the fabric of conducting business, as well in life.
At a very early age I learned the value of hard work by watching my parents work tirelessly in a small retail store to support our family. After my father passed, my mother single-handedly ran the entire operation. She was a strong businesswoman and maintained very loyal clientele by providing exceptional service and paying attention to the smallest of details. One of her strong attributes was how she attended to problems as they came up. I truly believe that there was not a problem she couldn’t or wouldn’t solve. The importance of service, attention to detail, and problem-solving skills are values that I carry forward in my life and my work.
I earned my BA in Business Administration at Lyceum of the Philippines University in Manila. My first job was at Far East Bank & Trust Co. Five years later I immigrated to California and in 2006 began my career in financial and insurance services working for Glass & Associates Financial Services, which is now a part of the Harris Private Wealth family.
Away from work I enjoy learning new things for work and fun. I love plants so gardening is a passion, and I sometimes play golf.
