Sherri's Money Story

“Sometimes, the most pivotal lessons in life aren’t taught by teachers. They are taught by people who see something in us that we do not see in ourselves. Growing up in Davison, I planned to follow in my parents’ footsteps by majoring in education at college. But a high school internship for Flint financial advisor, John Winton, of Raymond James Financial Services, set me on a path to become one of America’s top financial advisors.

John encouraged me to take business classes at the University of Michigan - Flint. I loved the courses and decided to pursue a business degree. Like many others, I benefited from John’s personal mission to nurture talent. Countless men and women have told me, ‘I spent an hour with John, and it changed the trajectory of my life.’ John did that for clients, colleagues and even people he didn’t know. He taught me how rewarding it is to mentor others, to use my financial aptitude to benefit the community, and that I can make a difference in people’s lives.”
