November Team Outing: Ax Throwing
In November, the team got together for some sushi and axe throwing at Bury the Hatchet. We learned very quickly we are better at servicing clients than we are at throwing weapons!
In 2019 Connie mainly focused on doing extensive landscaping to her home as well as installing a new front door. She also did a makeover of her dining room and living room. In 2020, Connie will be doing a makeover of her bedroom as well as enlarging her outside patio. Connie and her family are also looking forward to a trip to Niagara Falls and possibly Graceland (everyone knows how much she loves Elvis!).
In 2019, Jenica continued her work with horseshoe crabs and with the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization throughout the year. Professionally, Jenica celebrated her 6th year with Warren Wealth Associates and attended a very informative home office conference in September. In 2020, Jenica hopes to continue enhancing Warren Wealth’s message and look for further opportunities for the team to serve their community.
2019 was a very special year for Scott and Jen as they became parents for the first time. They didn’t have an easy road to get there and little Eleanor is exactly what they expected – crazy, beautiful, & high energy! Jen continues to run her massage therapy practice all the while being the primary caretaker for Eleanor – moms are amazing! Looking forward to the new year, Scott & Jen plan on spending a week down the Jersey Shore as well as visiting Jen’s family in Michigan. They will also be attending a family wedding in the spring and are eager to see what else is in store for their 1 year old!
2019 brought some joy and sadness to the Collins family. After a long battle with pancreatic cancer, and a drug trial that allowed the fight to continue, Chris’ brother in law Steve passed away over the summer in N.C. It is a disease our family, unfortunately, knows too well as Chris’ brother Dennis lost his battle to the same horrible disease a few years ago. On the positive side, Sue and Chris were able to escape some of the NJ winter weather and visit clients in warmer climates; we hope to see more of you this winter too! Sue and Chris’ boys have been quite busy over the past year with Zach now having celebrated a full year with his company that allowed for several business trips including 3 weeks in Australia. Garrett is beginning his second year of college that will allow him to obtain his MBA and BS in four years (with no extra cost to mom and dad 🙂 ). We had two family weddings this year, our first being for our WWA family member who is also Sue’s cousin, Jenica! The second was our nephew Bryan who was married in Rhode Island. We rounded out the year hosting LOTS of family at our house for the holidays. We hosted over 70 people during the week with three different family parties and even a visit to NY. As the youngest of six kids I was always surrounded by lots of family, but with the losses we have experience in the last several years I have tremendous gratitude for our family. Happy 2020!
In 2019 Alex decided to take on a significant challenge. Our world has changed in many ways. The advancements in technology have brought many opportunities for improved asset management and client service. Alex developed the solutions to automate many processes in his business, bring costs down for clients and improve the service model. As some of you know, Alex enjoys skiing and fishing. Like most, he celebrated this year’s accomplishments with family and friends. Below are a few images from the year gone by.
