How We Work With You

I have never been afraid to work hard and get my hands dirty. Maybe it’s because when I was growing up my dad seemed always to be working. Even when he was at home on weekends he would have me join him doing yard projects and building things. In my own house I have carried on that tradition. I am a genuine DIY-er. I finished my basement myself and am comfortable with handyman jobs, whether carpentry, plumbing or electrical work. Seeing a job through from start to finish is satisfying to me.

Similarly in my work as a financial advisor I like getting the job done, and done right. I take great pride in helping clients build for their life goals.

Again, I have my dad to thank. Now retired, he joined Morgan Stanley as a second career and brought me in while I was still in my twenties. I first worked in operations, processing account forms and deposits while learning all the back office functions. I then supported a team of four advisors, which proved a learning ground for client service. Financial planning was my next assignment, running the programs that help us model complex situations. After years in the industry, I took the leap and in 2008 became an advisor myself.

As a lover of advanced technology, I am the go-to person for all things tech-related. More broadly, my days are about delivering the best of Morgan Stanley to every client, always keeping the client’s interests first. As advisors we often serve as a hub connecting specialists in taxes, insurance, estate planning, long-term care, and banking and lending with the investment programs that are primary to what we do. In this era of holistic wealth planning our mission is to help investors navigate life’s transitions with confidence and success.

    Client Service Team

    • Snezana Todorovic - Client Service Associate
      Snezana joined Morgan Stanley in 2017 and comes to us with extensive experience as she has held a number of financial services roles since 2005. She is a graduate of Metropolitan State University with a double major in Business Administration and Economics. 

      Their Waconia house is bustling with activity while her husband, Alex, and she tend after their two year old daughter Nikolija. In her free time, Snezana enjoys cooking, spending time with her family and traveling.

      And while her name pronunciation may be a bit intimidating, looking to words such as treasure and beige helps to pronounces the “zhuh” sound – phonetically spelt her name reads: sné-zhuh-nah. But you can call her Snez for short.
