VANCE WEALTH TEAM MEMBER SPOTLIGHT: Brandy Sanchez, Human Resources Manager

With a positive presence and a passion for helping others grow in their professional roles, Brandy puts her experience in talent development to work as the Human Resources Manager at Vance Wealth.

“Some of my greatest responsibilities include the recruitment, onboarding and development of our team,” Brandy shared. “It’s essential that we have the best team possible, so we can serve our amazing clients at the highest level.”

Born and raised in the Santa Clarita Valley, Brandy attended post-secondary school at College of the Canyons in the community she calls home. During that time, she began her career at Walmart, quickly climbing the corporate ladder from an entry-level position into leadership roles as a personnel coordinator, regional facilitator and training manager. She served as a subject matter expert in a variety of areas including leadership, financial acumen and shrink prevention, and her passion for the job eventually led her to HR management positions, where she helped hire and train more than 600 employees.

“At this point, I was seeking a more people-based opportunity where I could pursue a career in HR,” Brandy shared. “I saw an opportunity to work with Vance Wealth and knew by the firm’s core values and reputation in the community that this would be a great company to be a part of.”

In her current role, Brandy oversees a variety of day-to-day responsibilities that support the team, including recruitment, onboarding, and development. She believes it’s essential to inspire others to work with as much passion as possible.

“If you have passion for what you do, bring positivity to every situation, and stay present in the moment, everything else falls in line,” Brandy shared. “We have the most amazing people on our team because they understand that!”

Outside the office, Brandy is a busy mom managing a house of four kids who she adores.
