My Professional Background
I was born in Sudan and came to the United States in 1990, initially settling in New York City before heading west to Wichita where I now make my home.
Initially, after completing my graduate studies, I pursued a career in banking, starting as a teller with Emprise Bank and, after just three years, was named a branch manager. In 2005, I decided to move into investments and work directly with clients to help them achieve their long-term financial goals.
My clients often describe me as disciplined, determined, and tenacious. These qualities have served me well as I settled in my new country and pursued my career as a financial advisor. Most importantly, they also characterize my approach to financial services today.
In 2011, I joined the newly-opened Wichita branch of Benjamin F. Edwards & Co. I did so with the knowledge that my clients would be well-served by the firm’s breadth of products and services, and the understanding that they would enjoy working with a firm that was as passionate about my clients as I am.
