Where are you from?
Born and raised in Denver

What is your favorite part of your job?
My favorite part of my job is the intimacy I share with my clients. Money and finances are topics that we generally keep private even with our closest family and friends. As the sole financial consultant for many of my clients, I maintain a patient and empathetic understanding of each person’s financial aspirations and anxieties. This lays the foundation for a trusting and confident relationship in which together we build a plan for a healthy financial lifestyle.

What is your favorite quote?
“Don’t waste your time on jealousy. Sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes you’re behind. The race is long and, in the end, it’s only with yourself.” – Mary Schmich

What is your favorite part of your job?
Meeting and helping individuals all around the state.  Finding them mortgage solutions for purchases, refinances or debt consolidation. It’s rewarding and always gives you a chance to solve a problem.

AmandaWAmanda Westbrook
Marketing Chair
Marketing Manager, Senior Benefit Services
720-535-4451 ext. 439  | amanda.westbrook@sbsteam.net

Where are you from?
I grew up in Lake Ozark, MO and after graduating from the University of Missouri, I packed up and headed west!

What is your favorite part of your job?
Most definitely the creative process!  Marketing is constantly evolving and something that worked 6 months ago, might not work today. I love working with my team on new strategies and seeing the different results. Not a single day at the office is the same – and most importantly, it’s always a lot of fun.

What is your favorite quote?
“Don’t get too busy trying to make a living, that you forget to make a life.” I think it’s so important as young professionals to create a healthy balance between time spent at the office advancing ourselves in our careers and time spent outside of the office appreciating everything/everyone that surrounds us.

720-524-5450 | cristina.johnson@cancer.org

Where are you from? Florida

What is your favorite part of your job? I love that I am able to make an impact in the fight against cancer. Cancer unfortunately has affected many members of my family, so I am very proud to be able to work for an organization that gives back to people who have been affected by cancer. The people I get to meet on an everyday basis truly inspire me to achieve more in my job, as well as in my life. Events like Making Strides bring communities together to help support those through their breast cancer journey, and I am very honored to be a part of such an inspiring event.

Fun Fact: One of my many passions is travel and learning about different cultures. I have been fortunate enough to visit a total of 22 countries through study abroad, leisure travel, as well as through my graduate program where I was able to live in Germany, Poland, and China.

Where are you from?
I grew up in Eureka Springs, AR and moved to Springfield, MO for college, where I stayed for about 7 years before making Colorado my home in 2012.

What’s your favorite part of your job?
Getting the opportunity to help people – whether it be with a new business venture, buying their first home, investing in their future, or simply making their lives a little easier with all the convenience available in banking services these days. I love being able to find a solution for each unique situation and, in turn, building authentic relationships and – often – friendships with my customers. It’s fun to work with your friends!

Favorite Quote?
Have patience with everything remains unsolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. Do not now look for answers. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. It is a question of experiencing everything. At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day. –Rainer Maria Rilke
