Vice Pres­i­dent, JP Morgan Se­cu­ri­ties

Working Mother - - Top Wealth Adviser Moms - Liz Weikes New York City

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
