Getting to Know Maxine

What do you enjoy most about working at RTD?

The diversity and culture that is embraced and represented by the employees.

What makes you good at what you do?

I believe my mindset of wanting to see others around me succeed, drives my passion to help people reach their goals and feel secure financially.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve received?

Surround yourself with people that have different opinions and life experiences than you to open your mind to new ideas and combat ignorance.

What personal accomplishment are you most proud of?

While I attended Towson University I founded and became Vice President of the Women in Finance club. I developed the idea and brought it to action after experiencing a lack of resources for women seeking to join the financial industry after graduation. I implemented the mission for the club to empower women and minorities entering the financial services industry by providing opportunities for personal and professional development and networking events. I took the initiative to meet and correspond with local professionals, which in return fostered relationships and built opportunities for the group to have guest speakers and panel discussions. I feel accomplished creating the Women in Finance club because it allowed for members to meet and learn from distinguished women in the industry that would share life and career advice with them, which could ultimately empower them to join the profession.
