She has also obtained her Florida Life, Health, and Variable Annuity insurance license, completed the Series 65 Securities License examination qualifying her to act as an Investment Adviser Representative, and has become a member of the National Social Security Association.
As a Financial Planner, Hady conducts in-depth analyses of client assets and creates income strategies and investment recommendations for advisers. These serve as the blueprints for client investment and retirement income plans. She also oversees the day-to-day operation of the Planning Division.
Hady enjoys travel and experiencing other cultures, cooking, and especially reading and learning new things. She speaks three languages: Taiwanese, Mandarin-Chinese and English.
