As a Senior Advisor, Iris works with high-net-worth individuals and businesses. She specializes in financial and contingency planning.

Iris joined Strategic in 2002 as an Executive Assistant within the retirement plan division.  Prior to joining Strategic, Iris worked for a regional bank where she worked in insurance planning and consumer banking.  As her role was to provide support to the firm’s management team and corporate clients, she also utilized her background and experience to contribute significantly to the firm’s insurance operations.
