Jesse Play

Birthplace: Long Beach, CA

Favorite childhood memory: Growing up in Long Beach, we had more parks per square mile than any other city in Los Angeles. My friends and I would build dirt jumps for our BMX bikes at the parks every day after school. Needless to say, my love of two wheels started when I was young.

Hobbies: Anything with two wheels has always fascinated me. I grew up racing bikes, and as I got older transitioned into motocross. I also enjoy hiking, surfing, diving, and occasionally a quick game of racquetball.

Passions: The outdoors and any activities within them. I love to get out of the city and head to the mountains for a ski trip, an epic hike, or a long mountain bike descent. I'm also passionate about traveling and exploring new parts of the world - every new place brings its own lessons and perspective to life that I find invaluable.

Favorite quote: "I do not think that there is any other quality so essential to success of any kind as the quality of perseverance. It overcomes almost everything, even nature."

It has always been her preferred way of doing business, as it helps clients make informed financial decisions which often results in better outcomes. Planning for the unexpected is what allows Taina to provide peace of mind for her clients. Her business philosophy is to always put clients and their priorities FIRST. Each client relationship is unique. The financial markets and economy may change, but her commitment to helping clients focus on what is important to them has not.
