Vice President, JP Morgan Securities
My career path: I worked for Her Majesty’s Government of the United Kingdom in the Department of International Trade. I joined Bear Stearns in 2006 and JP Morgan in 2008 through the firm merger.
Why I love my job: Flexibility. I can meet with clients, travel to meetings, and network around my toddler’s schedule. Being able to hold Matthew when he wakes up and rock him to sleep most days has allowed us to have a special bond, despite my demanding work.
How to rock your finances: Start a college savings plan for your kid from birth—or ASAP. No matter the amount, it’s a good start. By cutting back on just a few toys each year, you’ll be surprised by how quickly the money adds up and how decluttered your home looks.
With Adam, and Matthew, 2
