Why did you join the YJC Board?

Ann Jennett was highly persuasive in explaining the mission of YJC. Providing a pathway for young people into the workforce and helping them find their way to a career is a crucial need.

Investment management at Segall Bryant & Hamill

What was your first job?

Working as an officeboy in my Dad’s office

What did you learn from your first job?

It didn’t matter that he was your dad. If anyone asked you to do something, you did it. Asking  questions to make sure you understood what you were supposed to do was fine (but saying no was not an option).
