This led to her being hired as a Director of Administration for the SEC office in San Francisco. This office was the headquarters for the SEC in all of California and the 5 other states in the Pacific Northwest. She had a deep dedication compliance and worked through many tumultuous times in her region. The final period of her employment with SEC was deeply affected by the market collapse in 2007. This collapse was caused by the downfall of the housing market.

This led her to transitioning to work for the company where she works today, Hall Capital Partners LLC.
