Q&A with Tatym!

1. Can you talk about your current role?
I run a financial planning practice affiliated with Northwestern Mutual. As a financial advisor, I help clients with all thing’s money. From investment management to wealth preservation, I educate clients on how they are tracking towards their goals and inform them on how to change their financial trajectory.

2. What does a typical workday look like for you?
A typical workday consists of current client meetings, prospective client meetings and internal team meetings.

3. What are you passionate about in the work that you do?
As a first-generation college student, I did not know where to start when I was ready to learn about how to build wealth. The industry and financial planning as a whole was intimidating. This tends to ring true for a lot of people. On the flip side, there are those who understand financial tools, but maybe they don’t have the clarity on how they are working towards their goals. It is important for me to be someone at the table to help folks feel comfortable, confident, clear about their finances and what they need to do to accomplish their goals.

4. In what ways has your MSU Denver experience had an impact on your career and shaped who you are today?
My experience at MSU is undoubtedly a major contributor to my personal and professional success. From the dedicated support from professors and faculty to the numerous opportunities for growth, the university equipped me for the marketplace. What I appreciate most about my experience is having opportunities to network with tenured industry professionals, understand how the marketplace works through sales competitions, and being connected to companies seeking top talent. I am grateful for my time as MSU Denver and the community it helped me create.

5. What career advice would you give to current and prospective MSU Denver students?
Get involved, you get what you give. Get outside of your comfort zone and surround yourself with likeminded individuals, you never know where your next opportunity is and who will help you get there.
