Entrust Employee Spotlight: Mecala

Meet Mecala, she's the Email Marketing Specialist at Entrust and has been working here for almost 5 months. Continue reading to learn more about what makes Mecala unique: 

What do you enjoy about working for the company?
Learning more about investing and really getting an insider’s perception on self-directed IRAs and how they work. It’s mind boggling what all you can do with your money and how you can invest in investments such as real estate for little to no taxes, plus the people who work here are pretty great too.

What special skills do you have?
I’ve played the guitar since I was about 9.

What is the most common question you come across at Entrust?
What’s the difference between a transfer and a rollover and are you going to eat that?

Do you know any random facts about the IRA industry?
Most contributions originate with 401(k)s that are usually from an old workplace retirement plan and most people do not know that you can rollover that into a Traditional or a Roth IRA for self-directed IRA purposes here at The Entrust Group.

What is your favorite type of food?
Pear & Walnut Salad and my mom’s biscuits and gravy.

Do you have any hobbies?
I’m an avid sailor and traveler. Mine and my husband’s goal is to sail around the world once he retires from the military with our cat, Captain Jack. We hope to create a YouTube channel and blog to share our adventures.

Where are you from originally?
I’m a military brat myself and was born in North Carolina but I have lived all over the United States, from Florida to Alaska.

What do you enjoy about living in your state?
The whole state is so diverse. I love that I can go from the gorgeous scenery of Lake Tahoe to the hustle and bustle of San Francisco. Or hang out at the lively beaches one minute, and then end up at Disneyland! There is so much to do in California.

A fun fact about you.
I know how to juggle…does that count?
