This woman loves math! Her degree in Mathematical Economics from Whitworth University inspired her to look at the financial industry.  She learned a great deal of useful analytical skills while working with Whitworth’s Institutional Research department compiling important statistics that were applied to helping run the university.  First Pacific was lucky that she was working next door with a commercial insurance team which gave her valuable business and client service skills. Want to watch a scary movie, bake cookies, or have a challenger for your video game? Then Joanne’s your gal! On a side note, she can do an aerial heel click that would put any Leprechaun to shame.

Ryan Oldroyd CFP®, CPA/PFS

Financial Advisor

360-254-2585 | ryan@fp-financial.com

Ryan plays four instruments, including saxophone, clarinet, piano, and oboe. In his life, he will be a virtuoso oboist, but for now, he applies his passion towards researching personal finance in order to advise others to make smart decisions, understand money, and create positive impact with wealth. He lives by two great ideas: “Happy people live on less than they earn,” and “Smart people learn from their mistakes; wise people learn from the mistakes of others”. His path to First Pacific started at the Marriott School of Management at Brigham Young University with a Bachelor’s in Accounting and Master’s in Accounting. He went from there to Silicon Valley as an auditor and then to revenue accounting in San Francisco. Both great jobs, but they were missing the key ingredient that makes his position here the right fit, a client relationship. After spending most of his life in Utah and California, he now enjoys all that the Pacific Northwest has to offer with his wife and four daughters.

Maya Angelou inspired Lori’s life motto, “Try to be the rainbow in someone’s cloud.”  I think our clients would agree that she is sunshine at the other end of the phone in our Client Service team.  She is creative in her approach to problem-solving, adept in seeing other’s points of view, and is honest with a high sense of integrity.  After graduating from Washington State University, Lori focused on raising her two sons.  In 2005, she went back to college and obtained a degree in Digital Design. You can see some of her work after you cross the I-5 bridge and turn onto 6th street in the form of a city mural welcoming you to Vancouver. A gypsy at heart, Lori loves to hit the road or jump on a plane taking her to new and fun places.  Just a word of caution: don’t challenge her to a game of pinball, you might lose your shirt!
