My name is Joseph Altero and I was enlisted in the Air Force from 2008 – 2016. For the first four years of being in the service, I was active duty and stationed in Fort Walton Beach, Florida, where I worked in the Civil Engineering Squadron as an electrician. The final four years of my Air Force career were spent in the reserves at McGuire Air Force Base, NJ in the Aerial Port Squadron. At the same time, I was a full-time student using the G.I. Bill at Pace University in New York. At Pace, I studied Accounting and Finance and graduated with a Bachelors in Business Administration.
Fast forward to today, I currently live in Putnam County, New York with my wife and three children. My reason for pursing a career in Financial Services was because at a young age my parents got divorced and my mother was left as a single parent to care for four young, growing boys. She didn't have a high paying job and child support was barely enough to get by. Although money was hard to come by, she persevered and made sure we lived comfortably.
Growing up, I thought every family struggled with money and assumed it was normal. It wasn’t until college that I learned and developed a strong interest in the finance world. I began to understand that I can make a living by providing financial education to help people make better financial decisions. I fulfilled my duty of serving my country, now it is my passion to serve my community.
