Julie spent twelve weeks in Lakeview’s offices gaining first-hand experience in a financial advisory firm, assisting us in key areas while participating in the full range of our work, from operations, to financial planning to investment strategy and execution. Julie radiates irrepressible enthusiasm and immersed herself  in all things financial during her sojourn with us.
