Thank you Brooke for the nice article about the Bay Area. Since relocating here January 2011 I’ve met some wonderful people involved in the RIA arena. Our country has much to be grateful for considering there are many wonderful places to call home. I look forward to doing my part to add to the dynamism of a wonderful region.
