Broker Check


October 04, 2021

After our recent announcement of our strategic alliance with Spencer Financial, we are sure you have some BURNING questions about Stevie and Dusty.  I took a deep, deep dive with them, and asked some really serious stuff and I am here to report back.  First up is Stevie!  As you know, the women of Purpose Planning think of food before just about anything else, so I started there:

Stevie, what is your favorite type of food? 


Oh, spicy. I like it!  Ok, next. Where have you NOT been, but would love to go?

Greece- it is definitely on my bucket list. I think it is such a beautiful country with so much history. 

What new hobby or habit did you pick up as a result of all of the COVID craziness that has stuck? 

Who has time for hobbies when you have 4 kids? I was working full time, doing virtual school with 2, and caring for a 5 and 3 year old. We did end up getting a dog in May though (which we said we'd never do). He is a rescue that I drove 8 hours there (Illinois) and 8 hours back to get. His name is Bear and we think he is an eskijack. 

I've never heard of an Eskijack. I'll have to look it up. Next up, what is your biggest pet peeve?  

I really can't think of one.... maybe when people lie to get attention?

Tell us about a non-family member who makes you a better person. How?
At my previous job, I had 2 very successful, executive women take me under their wings (Kathy Noland and Terri Mujica). They taught me so much including how to be successful in business, but also how to look at situations through multiple points of view. I will be forever grateful for them. 
You have 4 children. Which one is your favorite and why? Just kidding! Seriously though, what is your favorite thing about being a mom? 
My favorite changes on a daily basis  I think their hugs are my favorite thing. And seeing them each grow into their own, unique self. 
Stay tuned for more from Dusty! We hope you have had a chance to connect with them soon if you haven't already!
