Ashlee deSteiger CFA®, CFP®, CPA is one-half of the husband/wife duo at GWM. So how did we come up with the firm’s name? “Gunder” is the name of the ski run in Beaver Creek, CO, where we got engaged back in 2006. Although I didn’t know how to ski before we met, it’s an annual family excursion now!
More about Ashlee deSteiger CFA®, CFP®, CPA:
When I was five years old, I started going to work with my dad at one of his seven diners. We’d get on the road around 6 AM. I was allowed a day-old doughnut from the freezer for breakfast – white-iced, raspberry jelly-filled was my go-to. Unfortunately, he usually zapped it too long in the microwave, making the jelly in the middle piping hot. I was great at peeling hardboiled eggs, restocking the candy case, and tallying up carry-out receipts – I loved every minute!
Dad always said my maiden name, Bassano, meant “hard-worker.” I firmly believe that tongue-in-cheek joke and my mom & dad’s entrepreneurial spirit shaped who I am today. Whether graduating college as a double major with honors in 3 years or cycling the US coast-to-coast in 9 weeks, I put my heart and soul into everything I do. I fully expect the same of myself if given the opportunity to be your financial advisor.
