The Intern Showcase: Meet Greg, Taylor, and Tyler

Skylight Financial Group’s 2019 summer intern program is underway! Over the course of the next few weeks we will be introducing these 11 aspiring professionals working with our teams across the state of Ohio. Get to know Greg, Taylor, and Tyler below.

Greg Hamper-Mentor, Ohio

What college do you currently attend? Why did you choose to go there?

I am a junior at John Carroll University. I chose John Carroll because of the strong support opportunities they give veterans like myself. Going to one of the states premiere business schools was also very important to me.

Why did you want to participate in the Skylight Intern program?

I have been interested in financial planning since I started my degree three years ago and over time I have developed a great relationship with the senior advisors at Skylight. It is because of them and their openness to mentorship that I am here today.

Outside of school and work, what are you passionate about?

I am a very passionate outdoorsmen and spend a lot of my free time hunting and fishing. If I can get the opportunity to bring other veterans along and share the experience with them, then that makes it even better.

What life achievement are you most proud of?

I am most proud of becoming a husband and father to my incredible wife and son. They are both my biggest support and the reason I work as hard as I do.

What TV show are you currently hooked on?

The Umbrella Academy on Netflix. Such a cool show!

What is the funniest “dad joke” you know?

A photon walked into a hotel, and at the front door the bellhop asked if he had any luggage. The photon replied, “nope, I’m traveling light.”

Taylor Wise-Whitehouse, Ohio

What college do you currently attend? Why did you choose to go there?

University of Toledo. A lot of my family went there, and they have a really great business program.

Why did you want to participate in the Skylight Intern program?

I really love to help people in whatever way I can. I always put people’s needs before my own. I know that Skylight is an amazing company, so I am excited to jumpstart my career and become a financial planner.

Outside of school and work, what are you passionate about?

I love to hang out with friends and have a great time. I love spending time with them and getting to hear about their days.

 

If you absolutely had to sing karaoke, what song would you pick and why?

I would choose Katy Perry’s “California Girls” because I’m “fine, fresh, fierce” and “got it on lock”. Country Roads would be my second choice!

 

What is the funniest “dad joke” you know?

Did you know the first French fries weren’t actually cooked in France? They were cooked in Greece…

What TV show are you currently hooked on?

The Office.

Tyler Tucker-Springfield, OH

What college do you currently attend? Why did you choose to go there?

Originally, I chose to attend Ohio University to pursue astrophysics major, one of the few schools in the state with that program. It wasn’t until later that I discovered a passion for business and decided to switch majors.

Why did you want to participate in the Skylight Intern program?

I have always loved the idea of helping people as a career, and financial planning seems like the perfect mix between supporting others and of utilizing my skills as a business professional.

Outside of school and work, what are you passionate about?

For as long I can remember I have had a love of sports. I watch a ton of football, and try to get on a golf course as frequently as possible!

If you absolutely had to sing karaoke, what song would you pick and why?

Hey Ya by Outkast. It’s a crowd pleaser that everyone knows by heart!

What TV show are you currently hooked on?

I have just recently started Game of Thrones this summer and I am loving every minute of it!

If you could only watch one movie for the rest of your life what would it be?

Interstellar, because everything in the movie is true to the laws of physics—besides the blackhole scene, of course—and the acting is incredible.

Thanks for sharing everyone. Stay tuned for more intern showcases!
