                        Meghan was born and raised in Anchorage.  After earning her Bachelors of Business Administration in Finance degree from the University of Alaska, Anchorage, Meghan began her financial career working in the highly complex field of mortgage underwriting. During her five years in underwriting, Meghan learned the importance of doing what may seem to be the little things correctly.  She recognized that whether or not her clients were successful in buying their home was dependent on her getting the details right.  Interested in broadening her financial services experience, Meghan joined UBS in 2009.  The experience she gained in the underwriting field has made her extremely effective in servicing client relationships and assisting with banking functions. 

                        Always interested in expanding her experience, Meghan volunteered to expand her responsibilities by assisting in the financial planning process.  Outside of work Meghan enjoys spending time with her family.
