Client Service Representative

Amy Macedo

Amy joins SK Wealth in our continued growth as our newest Client Service Representative. Amy is responsible for the data-gathering stage of our clients’ financial plans. She is also instrumental in assisting with client needs such as account openings, money transfers, and account administration. She started with SK Wealth in January 2020 and was encouraged to apply for the job by a friend that happens to be the husband of one of the Planners.

Her education is in Biology and she spent almost a decade working in Biotechnology labs and then teaching high school science.  She has always held retail or customer service jobs, either as part-time work or as her career path.  Those roles helped her to develop good interpersonal and service skills, which translate well in her new role as a Client Service Representative. In 2015, she began her role as President of a non-profit, Pawtucket Backpackers.  They are committed to providing weekend supplemental meals to any school children, of Pawtucket, RI, that live with weekend food insecurity.  Her work in the financial services began in 2017 at an independent broker’s office.

Christine Barry

Client Service Representative

Christine Barry

Christine graduated from Framingham State college in Business Administration/Finance. She worked as a bank teller at age 16 all through college. That is when she knew that she wanted to work in the financial world in some capacity. Christine started working with Putnam Investments right out of college and was there for 10 years in various positions. She found that each position was more intriguing than the previous. As much as she enjoyed working, Christine made the tough and rewarding decision to take a break and dedicate herself to raising her family of three children. When all three children were in school full time, she was grateful for the opportunity to again work within the financial realm part-time from home. Now that her children are a bit older, it is ideal for her to work in an office again. One day she looked on LinkedIn job opportunities and there it was, at the top of her search, SK Wealth Management, the unicorn of a job that she never thought existed.
