How I live the Four Capitals

Financial
I try to follow these strategies: save automatically by having funds auto-deposited into a retirement account; save for emergencies; pay off high-cost debt; and keep within a planned budget.

Physical
I’ve always been very physically active through sports. I enjoy golfing and will frequently walk the course instead of taking a golf cart. I also enjoy working out on a regular basis with my husband and my co-workers. I also like taking my dogs for hikes and walks. I’m mindful about drinking a lot of water and eating fruits and vegetables on a daily basis.

Psychological
It is challenging to find a sense of calm but I find that yoga helps. I try to focus on the positive things in my life. Staying physically active and intellectually engaged are also important to my psychological well-being.

Intellectual
I enjoy learning about new things whether it be through books, travel, conversations with others, or new experiences.

Why I enjoy working at SFG

I like working with our motivated and energetic team. We have a great culture and camaraderie.
