James LaRue, Financial Services Specialist
I grew up in Los Angeles, right on the beach, where I spent my early years hiking, surfing, and playing volleyball. I came to Arizona in 2014 when I started school at Arizona State University and fell in love with the state for its beauty and history. Prior to my current position, I worked in a calzone shop and then interned here at CEA!
I do not remember when I developed my love for traveling abroad but that may have something to do with the fact that my parents brought me on a family vacation to New Zealand when I was just a few months old and then to Scotland only a year later. The need to travel and explore has been ingrained into my mind ever since, so I am incredibly proud to be part of a team that makes that dream a reality for others.
A fun fact about me is I spend my free time finding and then exploring abandoned gold mines throughout the state, which is as exhilarating as it is terrifying.
