Gregory’s passion for helping people going through divorce comes directly from his work with children. He saw first hand the effect that divorce has on children and their ability to not only pursue the things they are passionate about but excel in those pursuits. His experience teaching also taught him that understanding where people are in their life, where they’re coming from, and where they’re trying to go is vital to helping them learn and progress. Gregory takes this idea to heart in his financial practice.
When working with people going through divorce it is especially important to meet people “where they are”. Everyone has a unique situation and level of experience, and on top of going through one of the most difficult emotional times of their life they’ve got to navigate one of the most important business transactions of their life, divorce. Divorce is complex, there are emotional, legal, and financial issues that all need to be addressed while balancing your everyday life, and it doesn’t stop there. Once the divorce is finalized you then need to move on and rebuild your new life. This is why Gregory joined Vesta’s team, they understand the complexity of the experience and have built a team of highly vetted professionals to help address each of the different areas. As a team athlete and coach Gregory works well as part of a team and values the power of people working towards a common goal, because it’s impossible for someone to be an expert in everything.
