Meet our summer intern – Quincy Donley

I am excited to be joining Alaska Wealth Advisors as a summer intern! I have a strong interest in pursuing a career in finance, and this internship is an excellent opportunity to gain experience in my hometown. I grew up here in Anchorage where skiing, running, biking, hiking and being active outside were all a part of my daily routine. I graduated from West Anchorage High School (go Eagles!) a few years ago with aspirations of succeeding at a high level academically and athletically in college. I am happy to say that I am now studying at Harvard, pursuing a degree in economics, and I am also a member and captain of Harvard’s NCAA Division 1 Nordic ski team.

After exploring many different concentration tracks at Harvard, I decided to study economics because I was drawn to the ideas of strategic decision making, opportunity costs, and behavioral economics. I also like the fact that what I am learning in my economics courses is relevant to everyone in the world– I realized we all rely on economies on many different scales. I am also pursuing a minor in German, and I was lucky to have the opportunity to study abroad last summer in Austria and Germany. It was meaningful to connect to my Austrian heritage and vastly improve my German language skills. Highlights of my study abroad included hiking in the Alps near Salzburg, taking the train to Frankfurt to see a Harry Styles concert, meeting up with my relatives in Tirol, and all the delicious food.

I have found the team at Alaska Wealth Advisors to be hardworking, friendly, and collaborative. Everyone in the office has been eager to help me learn and I have already begun to work on projects. I am eager to immerse myself in a professional setting and acquire new skills and knowledge in wealth management. I aim to apply the economics knowledge I have gained in college to real life applications. Ultimately, I look forward to assisting the team to empower clients with personalized solutions to help guide them towards achieving their financial goals.

When I am not at the office this summer, you’ll probably find me out on the trails ski training, mountain biking, or hiking with friends. I look forward to a summer of working hard, learning a ton, and having fun. See you in the office or on the trails!
