What quality of yours makes you best suited for what you do?
I’m a creative thinker but I like the details. At Blankinship & Foster, I find solutions for and assist clients by helping them open new accounts, update accounts, receive transfers, etc. as needed.
I love helping clients . . .
. . . break through what can feel like the red tape of completing forms and submitting requests. I enjoy helping clients learn to use technology so together we can complete their requests in the most efficient and secure way.
Tell us about your favorite hobby
I love painting. It’s hard for me to choose a favorite medium: currently watercolors, mixed-media. The beach inspires me to capture the sparkle of San Diego water, sand, and air.
I am happiest when . . .
. . . I’m walking, running, bike-riding, swimming, laughing, or drinking wine al fresco! It’s about that fresh open air!
