Mason joined Blankinship & Foster in 2022 as a Wealth Management Resident. In this position, Mason will complete a three-year program building the foundational knowledge that advisors need to successfully serve their clients by working in the key departments of our firm; Client Service, Financial Planning, and Investment Management.
Prior to joining Blankinship & Foster, Mason studied International Business and Economics at the University of California, San Diego. After obtaining his bachelor’s degree, Mason worked as a financial advisor at another firm for two years before deciding to join a team of established advisors, as he felt there was more opportunity to grow his skills in wealth management through a mentorship program.
When he is not at work, Mason is either enjoying time spent with his big family, getting his adrenaline fix through action sports, or trying out a new restaurant in his never-ending search for the best California Burrito in San Diego.
What Makes you proud to be part of the Blankinship and Foster team?
At Blankinship and Foster, I know that I am surrounded by a group of individuals who are excited to take on the day ahead of them and work together to find the right solutions for our clients. Knowing that I’ll be met with a smile and an eagerness to help when I poke my head into someone’s office to ask a question is how I know that I am on the right team.
What quality of yours makes you suited to do what you do?
I love to learn. Whether it’s a new way to approach a financial planning strategy or a new hobby our client is passionate about, I’m all ears. As such, I am very fortunate to be in a role that allows me to learn from our team and our clients on an ongoing basis and use that knowledge to make a bigger impact in our community.
What was your first job?
Growing up, I spent my summers and school breaks working in the warehouse of my family’s screen-printing manufacturing business. Long days spent in a hot warehouse filling, labeling, and shipping screen-printing chemicals sure can teach you a thing or two about a hard day’s work.
