Meet Our Summer Intern!

| July 10, 2018

At Garland & Associates, we place a high value on sharing our knowledge and experience with others. One of the ways we do this is by bringing on a summer intern, someone who desires to get hands-on experience in the financial industry and put their education to work. We want to take this moment to introduce you to our current summer intern, Laura Cisna!

Meet Laura

Laura is a senior at Iowa State University, majoring in Finance. She will graduate at the end of 2018 and plans to begin working on her financial certifications immediately, eventually pursuing a Master’s in Family Financial Planning. Her dream is to run her own financial advising business so she can help families prepare for their future.

While interning at Garland and Associates, Laura will be handling our social media accounts and learning what’s involved in the day-to-day operation of a financial advising firm. Outside of the office, Laura loves to spend time gaming online. In fact, she built her own computer at the age of 16 and has been a game manager for a variety of small MMORPGs (massive multiplayer online role playing games) since.  

She looks forward to a productive summer and can’t wait to meet all our wonderful clients!

We hope you get a chance to welcome Laura to our team this summer and benefit from her knowledge and passion. If you want to see what Garland & Associates and can do to improve your financial life, call us today at (515) 226-0115 or email
