...............Registered Representative, RJFS
Elaine Parrot has over 15 years of experience in the financial services industry. Before joining the Cavalena Group at Raymond James Financial Services, she held executive level positions at a regional office of a major national bank in Ohio serving as an Assistant Branch Manger and most recently as a Personal Investment Banker.
Elaine’s educational background is broad and deep having earned an Associate’s Degree in Electrical Engineering from Kent State University in 1996 and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Business Management from Malone College in 1998.
Elaine’s engineering and technology background combined with her training in business management serve her well in technical trading and investment analysis. Elaine says that her key to her success, however, is her personal interaction with clients.
"Throughout my career, I have been able to build successful relationships with individuals as well as businesses treating them not just as names and numbers but as strategic partners being personally committed to their success. This has helped me serve my clients through ups and downs in the market and expand our financial relationships."
"I make the financial planning and implementation process easy to understand and easy to complete. But my most important skill is listening. Before I offer any advice, I listen very carefully to my clients as they express their needs, gaining a firm understanding of their history and future goals. This allows me to recommend the suitable instruments to help my clients work toward achieving something we all want, greater financial independence."
Elaine is married and leads an active social and family life. She enjoys running, canoeing, bicycling, hiking, and watching her children participate in various school activities.
