At an age when most kids are coming to grips with multiplication tables and simple fractions, Barbara Gruss was already learning how to balance a checkbook and fill out tax forms — and enjoying it. It’s no surprise that she would go on to make numbers her profession, and why our clients are glad she did.
As Director of Operations for Levine Financial Group, Barbara’s service-first mindset embodies our commitment to going above and beyond every day. She is the go-to contact for clients whenever they need assistance, from account status and changes to compliance matters and answering any administrative questions that clients may have.
Growing up in southern California, it was Barbara’s mother who first introduced her 9-year-old daughter to the importance of understanding finances and numbers. Barbara’s affinity for math can be traced to those lessons, which served her well when she first began working in the industry.
Bored with the sunny SoCal climate (is that even possible?), Barbara relocated to New Jersey in 2014. Because she’s a fan of all things outdoors — including camping — she finds the changing of seasons invigorating. In her spare time, she enjoys long distance running, travelling and taking road trips, volunteering at local shelters and spending time with her family.
