As a child, Russell remembers talking to a stranger about her life as a physician. She beamed as she spoke of her patients, experiences and making a difference; the passion with which she spoke drove straight into him. Those in the medical profession are trained to do something that he always dreamed of doing – they help people heal. Since then, Russell has become a financial advisor and practiced focusing on helping medical professionals with their financial well-being. He has worked closely with members of the Sonoma-Mendocino-Lake Medical Association.
