“In any emerging industry, those that become truly expert are those that are able to constantly learn and share knowledge with as many legitimate viewpoints as possible. Atrium’s model affords me the ability to dive deep with my clients, engage with the community, and spend as much time as possible learning and sharing knowledge. I decided that if I wanted to devote my all to something, I wanted to do so at a place that would allow me to foster the best skills and acumen to do so. Atrium provided me that space.”
