TAKING CARE OF THOSE WE SERVE The Best of Intentions With Racquel Henry-Burke

I started my career in the financial industry shortly before moving to the hospitality industry. After working in hospitality for a couple of years, an opportunity opened up at JMMB. I went after it, and after 12 years with JMMB, you can absolutely call it a success! I am grateful to be in a place where I can genuinely influence people’s lives and do it through a company such as JMMB. Today, I serve as an administrator of the personal portfolio department. Long story short, I am here for the JMMB team to offer administrative support. I also assist the department’s sales team with various sales efforts. JMMB is a truly remarkable company, as many have shared over the past several months. JMMB is a company that gives me space to be open and honest — and where I am confident to say what I believe is working and what isn’t. In doing so, JMMB allows me and my team to be our best selves. I can take care of myself, which puts me in the best possible position to take care of those we serve. Without a doubt, my favourite aspect of the job is each of the relationships I have developed over the years with clients and with my colleagues. Many of my team members have started to feel like family. Together, we share the ups and the downs. Just knowing that I am part of a group whose overall objective is to have a positive impact on our clients, and to have a holistic understanding of their financial well-being, is nothing short of incredible.

Of course, one thing that gives me immense satisfaction is that I am able to develop deep and lasting relationships with clients. Our clients come from all walks of life. They have seen and experienced things that often leave me astonished. And to have a client comfortable enough to have a conversation about their life beyond finances or investing means so much. I have had many, many wonderful and profound conversations with my clients. When I am not working with clients or our team, you can find me at home, cozying up with my family for a movie. Really, that’s as good as it gets! I am also a bit of a reader and enjoy a classic Victorian-era novel, but for the most part, a lot of my reading is in the form of news. Between Loop, The New York Times and The Washington Post, I keep myself well occupied. I am also looking forward to the new year and whatever opportunities or changes that God wills for my life. I have made a resolution to not quickly judge other people’s actions and intentions — that is, I will not jump to conclusions. Instead, I am working on changing that habit. I will come from the perspective that, unless proven otherwise, we all have good intentions within our hearts.
