Tell us about yourself and your family.

I was born in Mexico and moved to Cincinnati OH at the age of 3 but not before becoming fluent in Spanish. I attended The Ohio State University where I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a major in Finance and a minor in Consumer and Family Financial Services. I have always strived for leadership roles including experiences in banking, finance, and even as a team captain for the Ohio State’s Ultimate Frisbee team. I have a passion in furthering my educational skills while also wanting to make an impact on the world and others around me. I currently reside in Dublin, OH with my brother Sion who is attending Dental School at The Ohio State University. We enjoy anything sports related and spend most of our free time travelling and playing Ultimate Frisbee together.

Why did you pursue a career in finance?

Growing up I loved the idea of making a living from building relationships. I was always good with numbers and decided the best way to fit both into a profession was to become a financial planner / advisor. I furthered my interest in finance when I interned with Antolino & Associates while I was still at Ohio State in 2020. After 2 years as an intern, I came on board full time in the summer of 2022.

What is your role at Antolino & Associates?

I provide leverage for the advising team and help develop and monitor our clients’ financial plans over time. I address current client needs and proactively uncover ways to deliver greater value to clients and find new ways to empower their confidence. I am working towards the goal of becoming a financial advisor in the future.

What might we catch you doing for fun on the weekend?

I spend many of my weekends playing Ultimate Frisbee and traveling. I was recently selected to represent the USA in the World U24 Championships in the United Kingdom where we won a Gold medal. When I am not playing Ultimate Frisbee, you can find me playing pickleball at a local park or supporting Ohio State athletics on the weekend!
