Christinia is one of those people that loves helping. At Thimbleberry, Christinia helps behind the scenes as part of our financial planning team. Christinia joined the financial industry in 1997, and quickly specialized in public retirement plans. In 2006, she became a Certified Financial Paraplanner Qualified ProfessionalTM from the College of Financial Planning.

She also loves to travel, especially if the destination involves water.

Loren Surmeli

Administrative Assistant


Loren’s title of Administrative Assistant isn’t quite right, “Paperwork Guru” would be more appropriate. She’s the gal that creates and processes paperwork related to accounts and insurance. Loren has worked in financial services since 2015, and originally gained her experience working in the property and casualty insurance arena.

When she isn’t working, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Riyad, and their two daughters. They enjoy browsing the farmer’s markets and attending local music and art festivals. Her goal this year is to try kickboxing because it is outside her comfort zone; she is currently a long-distance cyclist.
