Not only will these millennial inheritors likely look for a new financial advisor to manage their money, as opposed to sticking with the family advisor, they will also want to ensure their money positively impacts society, and they tend to crave inti...

Volunteering in the Dominican Republic The Dominican Republic is a well known location for tourists and honeymooners, with sand so soft and white you’d think it was made of chalk. Though it is the second strongest economy in Central America and the Caribbean, beyond the swanky beach resorts lies a very different Dominican Republic, still beautiful, but full of need. Access to education and healthcare can be scarce and the island suffers often dur...

Traveling has completely altered life as I know it, and I hope it continues to do so every day of my life.
Introduction
I am devoted to supporting projects that help people, especially projects near and dear to my heart in the Philippines, where I am currently living. For now my heart is enormously attached to the children in the Philippines, specificially at my Community Center/Evacuation Center in a rural village called Cangumbang. In early 2013, the center construction began, after I spent a year fundraising in the U.S., and by the end of 2013 Typhoon Haiyan ripped the center's roof off, but the entire village was saved. My life has literally been flipped upside down though my work in the Philippines since 2009, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I am happy to be able to spend my career helping communities grow and develop over the years, and help others find ways to do the same.

I have an amazing family back home who supports me through everything, I would never be here today without the love and guidance of my parents, three sisters, two brothers, their spouses and children, and dozens of cousins, aunts, and uncles.
