Dawne S. Garvey
Client Service Associate
Following a relocation from Iowa to West Michigan, I joined the CapTrust team in April of 2017. Everyone has a dream job they hope to acquire one day, and I am excited to have the joy of being part of the unique CapTrust culture. What a great feeling to be working alongside such an inspiring group of people who endeavor to deliver excellence all around!
I enjoy people. I have tremendous compassion for the less fortunate, down-trodden and discarded in our society. I seek to help those around me be the absolute best they can be and I aspire to treat every person I meet the way I would want to be treated. That’s a big deal to me. I’m grateful that I am surrounded by people with individual and corporate values that spur me to become a better person. I believe every interaction has the potential for something special to happen.
I have over 22 years of experience in the financial services industry as a financial analyst, compliance officer, and director of operations. I’m a problem-solver who enjoys digging into things to find a solution to make somebody’s life a little bit better.
I love learning and collaborating. I believe knowledge is a conduit for empowering myself and others. I have Bachelor’s degrees in Psychology and Business Administration and a Masters in International Business. I’d enjoy pursuing an advanced degree in International Law but, for now, my husband says, “Enough is enough.”
Because of a successful blind date, I have been married to my husband Mike since 1988. He is truly one of the best people I know. We have three remarkable adult children, a beautiful daughter-in-law, and an incredible son-in-law, who all live in Des Moines, Iowa. They are some of the most wonderful humans who love and serve the Lord with their time, talents and treasures. We are super excited to become grandparents for the first time in 2017!
I find peace anytime I’m out in nature or on the water. Mike and I enjoy hiking, kayaking, and I’m a recent camping enthusiast, which is ironic because I used to consider “roughing it” as staying at a hotel without a pool. My little buddy is my new Australian Shepherd, Milo, who walks the beach with me whenever we can. Gardening, reading, and traveling round out my favorite activities. Most importantly, we are “fearless followers of Christ”!
Hope to have the joy of meeting you soon!
