What do you like most about working at FS Investments?
The atmosphere here really provides access and allows for collaboration at all levels of the organization. When I started 10 years ago, we had fewer than 10 employees and nearly everything was done on paper. We’ve focused on constantly improving our processes, especially when it comes to technology. For example, our expense reimbursement tool was created in-house to meet our specific needs.
Describe a memorable moment from your time working at FS.
Through our co-op program with Drexel University, we get to work with young people coming up in the marketing profession. I realized how strong this partnership was when a departing co-op got misty-eyed on his last day. We’ve made our team feel like a family. It’s important for productivity and well-being to work in an environment you can truly enjoy.
How are you helping FS make an impact on the industry?
I enjoy getting the chance to collaborate with colleagues and external partners to identify new and innovative ways of doing business. We’re always looking to challenge the status quo and optimize the customer experience for our advisors and clients.
