She discovered her passion for financial planning as a Wealth Advisor at Morgan Stanley, where she was tasked with training advisors on how to integrate financial planning into their practices across the Houston area. Margarita earned her CFP® designation in 2007.
Prior to receiving her MBA from University of Houston’s Bauer College of Business, she earned a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology. The passion to serve and educate translated well as she honed her skills in finance, helping clients identify their financial priorities and life goals with a truly holistic approach.

In her free time, Margarita loves to travel and play outdoors with her husband, Kevin. They love to bike, surf, hike and anything else that involves nature. They are parents of Jorge and Tiberius, their chihuahua mix and cat, whose antics keep them busy as well.

“Success does not necessarily mean wealth or great material gain or even professional accomplishment. It can include those things; but success must be defined uniquely by each individual in the climb.”
