I moved to Greenville in 1981. My father, John Bradley came to NC with TRW. He worked as an engineer with TRW, Inc. for 29 years. Since retirement he has been building guitars which are a big hit from Greenville, NC to Nashville, TN.
My mother Carmen has been the financial secretary for St. Peter’s Catholic Church since 1984. My sister Carla and I attended St. Peter’s Catholic School while she was right next door working for the church. The staff and congregation quickly became our family and favorite place to be.
I am married to Sterling McDowell who does home improvements and is also a talented musician and songwriter. We spend much of our time with family and friends, fishing, camping, reading and gardening.
Through my many years in Greenville learning from several strong minded business owners, studying sociology/psychology at ECU and with the guidance of family and friends I began my career in the financial industry with A.G. Edwards and Sons, Inc. in 1998. I learned the value and importance of client service and fell in love with the work.
I work for Carolina Wealth Management which is co-owned by David Damm and Derek Pszenny as their Client Service Manager. I joined their team in 2006 and felt right at home because of the high level of client care. The investment philosophy was refreshing from the start and remains the same today. It is true that the industry is never boring but working closely with the clients makes it very easy to come to work in the morning. I consider our clients my family as I do the team that I work with.
