Katherine Mairena

Associate Financial Representative
Office 919-834-7772

Katherine graduated from UNCW in 2012 with a BS in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing. She is fluent in Spanish and has both her life and health insurance licenses for the state of North Carolina. You may have guessed she is related to me somehow, and you are correct. She is my oldest daughter. Family is one of my biggest values, so getting to share an office space with my daughter makes the work day that much sweeter.

Call her for assistance with scheduling, investments, and any computer issues.
