Financial Planning Assistant

I am currently a Financial Planning Assistant here at Priority1, with the ultimate goal of becoming a financial adviser. I’ve worked in the financial services industry for almost five years, starting in early 2007 as an administrative assistant with Priority1. Over the years I continued to study and gain significant experience on the job, resulting in the completion of my Diploma in Financial Planning in 2009. In early 2010 I left Priority1 for the ‘big smoke’ to get a different perspective on the industry and to gain further experience, telling myself I’d stick it out for at least a year to figure out where I fit in the financial world. After 15 months I could firmly conclude that this less personal world of finance wasn’t for me, and was lucky enough to be offered a position back at Priority1.
