Tricia Vossenkemper knew early on that she would begin her college education at St. Charles Community College.
“I knew I could get an affordable, quality education at SCC,” Tricia said. “On top of that, my mom was the financial aid director at SCC for more than 20 years. Both of my older sisters also attended and had positive experiences.”
As a high school senior, Tricia decided to pursue a business degree with an emphasis in finance. She dual-enrolled at SCC and started taking business classes.
“In one of my dual-enrollment classes, we watched a video on Oprah’s Debt Debit, and that’s what inspired me to pursue a career where I could help people manage their finances.”
Tricia became very involved with the college when she started attending full-time in 2007. She began working as a secretary in the Child Development Center and was a member of Phi Theta Kappa.
“My proudest memory at SCC was being named Business Student of the Year in 2009.”
Tricia credits SCC for setting a great foundation for her education and career.
“The professors are incredibly knowledgeable and supportive. You can tell they genuinely care.”
After graduating from SCC, Tricia went on to earn her bachelor’s degree from the University of Missouri – St. Louis. At UMSL she received an Edward Jones scholarship and kept in touch with the team that interviewed her, which led to her current career at Edward Jones.
“I’ve been with Edward Jones since June 2011 and am currently a Senior Estates Specialist,” Tricia said. “I have my financial advising licenses and work closely with our branch teams to help them ensure our clients’ estates are processed appropriately.”
Tricia enjoys working at Edward Jones so much. she plans to stay there to retirement.
“I am currently exploring a variety of opportunities at Edward Jones, but I love helping others and what I really enjoy doing is coaching and training fellow associates. I am working on my development plan and am pursuing roles in our training and branch development departments.”
