We recently took a few moments to learn a bit more about Wealth Advisor Annie Brinckman, CFP®, RICP®, BFA™ and found out what changed her career goals all the way back in third grade, her “hidden talent”, and what she would NEED to have on a deserted island.  Read on for more!

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

“As a kid I dreamed of being an architect. That dream left me around 3rd grade when I realized it was too difficult to spell! In college, I fell in love with financial planning and find a lot of similarities in planning/designing a retirement income plan as I do designing a home. Both are wonderful opportunities for blending creativity and engineering.”

Do you have any hidden talents or hobbies? 

“As a woman of many “odd hobbies,” this is a difficult one. I have solved a rubiks cube in under a minute – I’d say that’s a hidden talent of mine. In high school, it was the only toy the teacher’s would let me fiddle with in class without taking it away! Although my hand’s don’t move quite as fast as they once have, I can consistently solve them in a few minutes now.”

What three items would you take with you to a deserted island?

 “I suspect “food, water, and shelter” are not allowed here. Three items I rarely travel without are my kindle loaded with books, a whittling knife to pass the time, and my hiking buddy Scout (my chocolate lab). I assume my husband Jeff is also on the island – he doesn’t leave Scout either!”
