      Ingrid began her career in wealth management in Tokyo, Japan in 2002 after moving from her native Australia to gain experience abroad.  The challenge of being outside of her comfort zone taught Ingrid the importance of having a financial strategy. Her desire to learn about different cultures led Ingrid to relocate to Singapore in 2004, where she continued working in wealth management and private banking.  In 2018, she moved to California, joining Merrill Lynch in 2019. 

      Ingrid engages with clients to develop a deep understanding of their goals such as preserving and growing their wealth and taking care of future generations.  She creates wealth management strategies for entrepreneurs, business owners, families, and individuals - many of whom may be facing retirement, loss of a loved one, or coming into an inheritance.   Ingrid believes one of the greatest benefits in her role as a Financial Advisor is the long-term relationships she develops with her clients.  She holds her Series 7, Series 66, and insurance licenses.

      As an active member in her community, Ingrid volunteers at the Belvedere-Tiburon Landmark Society and is involved with other organizations she is passionate about. She lives in Tiburon with her husband, James, and their three Singaporean rescue dogs.  They enjoy traveling and are still discovering the United States, which they are proud to call home.
