Biographies

doolinourteam.JPG

At The Doolin Group, we are a team of six, whose reputation, combined experience, professional credentials and creativity enable us to provide the signature service we have become known for. Ten years ago, Jason Brown joined The Doolin Group as a full partner having been with the firm’s New York office for 10 years. Jason and I share the belief that all clients benefit from an advisory/consultative investment process that includes listening and questioning.

Another senior-level team member, Mabel Yue, joined our team 18 years ago with similar goals. Mabel was recently promoted to Assistant Vice President in recognition of her incredible work ethic and contributions to our clients and our team. We are blessed that the following new team members have joined us over the past few years: Lauren Francis brings experience and a focus on financial planning as our next generation of leadership along with “MJ” Cabel who thoughtfully serves our clients day-to-day in various operational capacities.

We are so proud of our team and the great work they do on behalf of our many wonderful clients.
