Partner, Wealth Management Advisor, the WealthGarden f.s.
Josephti’s life goal is simple: nurture and care for her family, friends, and clients.
She’s worked at many notable firms, including JPMorgan Chase and Morgan Stanley/Smith Barney, but holds a soft spot for hercombined 16 years at AllianceBernstein and TIAA. Everything she knows about financial planning, investments, and elite client service she owes to the wonderful people she had the honor of working with at those two firms.
After more than two decades financial services, Jo created the WealthGarden f.s. with her business partner to elevate theircollective knowledge and experience to a higher level. Take wealth management as you know it, and add warmth, ease, efficiency, and the latest technology. They’re streamlining processes so they can spend more quality time to do what’s in their clients’ best interest.
Jo is here to be her clients’ and their loved ones’ trusted partner for the rest of their lives.
Speaking of loved ones, Nyla and Sloane are Jo’s mini-me’s and the reason this night owl wakes up early in the morning. Theycherish their little adventures together, whether it’s a weekend trip up the coast or to the girls’ favorite spot in Hawaii. Jo’s mom, who is her rock and pillar of strength, thankfully lives a few miles away and is a constant presence in their lives.
Some passions: real estate, trying new cuisines locally and abroad, and snowboarding.
