Alexandra Kinander has been working as a financial advisor since 2007. Born and raised in Brazil, she received a Bachelor Degree in Law and a Bachelor Degree in Business in her home town of Sao Paulo. Subsequently, she practiced corporate and securities law at two of the most prestigious law firms in Brazil (Machado, Meyer Sendacz e Opice Advogados and Souza Cescon Advogados). She also worked for Davis Polk & Wardwell, in New York, as a foreign temporary associate in the corporate and securities department.
In 2004, her husband’s career took them to San Diego. As she was starting to build her family and a network of friends, David Brenner invited her to join his thriving financial planning practice. She immediately enjoyed the personal interaction that comes from understanding clients’ needs and expectations, as well as learning the technical aspects involved in providing comprehensive financial planning services. In 2011, she proudly became a Certified Financial PlannerTM.
Having young kids herself, Alex particularly appreciates working with young families and helping them understand the importance of a disciplined and early approach to retirement planning.
