What does a typical work day look like for you? I’m an early riser and start my day around 5:30 a.m. by answering work and Chizuk Amuno related emails. When I am not travelling to see clients, I am typically downtown by 8:00 a.m. As a Strategic Advisor at Brown Advisory, I work with our most complex clients – individuals and families – helping them navigate estate, tax, generational and other planning issues.
What do you love most about the work you do? One of the best parts of what I do is working with so many families that are genuinely charitably inclined. Their hearts and passions motivate them to help those in need. It’s always fulfilling to be able to work with families and help them create a charitable plan that is dynamic and purposeful and most importantly transmit values and passions to the next generation.
Why are you a donor to The Associated? I am a donor quite honestly because it is a part of my DNA. My grandparents and parents were always deeply committed – it is genuinely how I was raised. Giving time and funds to The Associated is just what you do. We are privileged in life to have the opportunity to help others and most especially those in the Jewish community. We must take care of our own and preserve and grow the future of the Jewish community. If not us – then who will? I have worked hard to instill this same passion in my daughters and I hope and believe that they will continue this family legacy.
What motivated you to support Brown Advisory in becoming corporate sponsor of The Associated and JVC? Brown Advisory is committed to giving back to community. I am so proud to be part of firm that deeply values the importance of community service. An overwhelming number of my colleagues serve on not-for-profit boards across the country in all areas. Our commitment to the JVC’s Days of Service closely aligns with the core values of Brown Advisory, so it was an obvious partnership. In addition, it was a great opportunity for me and my colleagues, who are so deeply committed to The Associated by serving on various boards and committees, to embark on a corporate relationship together.
Has anything positive come out of your corporate partnership with The Associated? Our partnership has been a wonderful chance for my firm to learn more about The Associated. Since the partnership began, JVC has come to our Baltimore office to facilitate a Party with/for a Purpose volunteer activity. Over fifty colleagues joined together to make lunches for an area shelter. The need to serve the homeless stems across all races, religions and gender – and our firm was able to come together to help those in need. Also, several of my colleagues have been inspired to continue to volunteer with JVC, and routinely participate in at least one of the Days of Service. They would never have known about these acts of service without Brown Advisory’s connection to The Associated.
What is your favorite summer Baltimore activity? I love spending time outdoors. Whether taking long walks with my daughters and mother, reading a book on my patio, or barbecuing and eating outside, I always find time to take advantage of our amazing warm weather. I love the summer and would take a 90-degree Baltimore hot and humid day any time of the year!
