My Story and Services

My Story

As a child my family went through a severe financial hardship for a brief period of time.   During this time my parents sent me to live with some relatives. This was probably the best thing that ever happened to me. The relatives I lived with were on the opposite side of the spectrum: they were not only financially stable but as far as i was concerned, wealthy.  Seeing the two very different lifestyles in live, living color has shaped me into who I am today.  From that point in my childhood I decided to figure out how money works (how it can work for you and also how not having enough and making poor financial choices can work against you). I read books, attended courses, and most importantly aligned myself and listened to individuals who were financially savvy to learn as much as I could. I don't believe that financial success brings a person happiness. But I do believe it can provide a person choices and a sense of security. I still continue to learn more every day, it's my passion.

I began my career in 1996 with Merrill Lynch. It started out with a friend of mine asking me if I had any interest in working for the gentleman she babysat for. He worked for Merrill Lynch and needed someone to do some filing and other organization for him. I immediately said yes. With my desire to learn how to make good financial choices I knew I’d have a front row seat and access to people I could learn from. The first 6 months, I did some pretty high profile work such as picking up lunch, making photo copies, and filing paperwork.  I didn’t mind at all, I had gained access into a world  full of people who could and were willing to teach me. As my mentor Dave Binkley saw how eager I was to learn and do more, my role evolved. I organized seminars, assisted in researching, and eventually was asked if I wanted to become an advisor.  In 1997 as I was wrapping up my college classes  I started studying for the series 7.  I passed the Series 7, 63, & 65 tests later that year and began working for Merrill Lynch as an advisor with Dave as my mentor.   

In 2006 I attained the CFP® designation after completing all requirements and testing through the CFP® Board of Standards.  In May 2016 after 19 years with Merrill Lynch I decided that it was no longer a fit and I joined Morgan Stanley.  I felt that Morgan Stanley had gained the advantage over Merrill Lynch (who was purchased by Bank of America) as the leading provider in the financial services industry.

My Family

My Family

I have been married for 12 years to Dan Bumpus. I met Dan back in 2001 when he was on the local news as a reporter.

Back then going out was always an interesting adventure. People would approach him just to let him know that they loved watching him or to thank him for help he had gotten them as an investigative/consumer reporter.  As the years went on Dan evolved into one of WTOL’s morning news anchors.  Although he loved the job the schedule was challenging.  His alarm clock had to be set for 2:15 AM.  It wasn’t so bad until we had our first child Ben in 2009.  We knew that with our second son Jack arriving in 2011 it would be impossible to keep up the early morning routine.  Family time suffered since he was forced to sleep in shifts.  So shortly before Jack was born in early 2011 he left the news and launched a new career in real estate investing.  This was a great decision, now with Dan’s flexible schedule we always have at least one if not both of us present at school functions and sporting events for the kids. In 2016 we rounded off the family with our little girl Ella.  Now I am no longer the only girl in the house. 

Community Involvement

Community Involvement

In 2014 I began serving on the local Make A Wish board.  This organization does so much good for the families it helps on both a local and national level. The wishes granted to the ill children in many cases aide in their recovery and their mental strength as they deal with the illness.
