Join us in welcoming our newest additions to the Skylight family! Get to know them down below.


Sam Hardin, Financial Professional, Cincinnati

Where are you from?

I am born and raised in the city of Cincinnati. I am currently living in Mason, OH, but will be moving to Oakley soon to be closer to the office.

Why did you choose to work at Skylight?

Growing up, I have always had a passion for helping other people out, so I am very excited to work with families and individuals to achieve their financial aspirations. I chose to work at Skylight because of the culture introduced to me during the interview process. Skylight allows me to help others out in the ways described by giving me the tools and resources to grow and excel as a professional.

Outside of the office, what do you enjoy doing?

Outside of the office, I am an avid golfer. I try to get out on the course as much as I possibly can. When not on the course or in the office I enjoy watching sports. Growing up, I always played football and baseball, so those are the two sports I love the most. I am a born and raised Ohio State fan as well as a Bengals and Reds fan.

What life achievement are you most proud of?

I would say my proudest achievement so far in life was graduating from Miami University. Throughout my four years there, I established some of the best connections that I know will last for the rest of my life. I feel as though my time there has given me the experience and the people to help me through any event life might throw at me, now and in the future. I am proud to be a Redhawk and to have been part of such a great community.


Joe Staff, Financial Professional, Dublin

Where are you from?

I was born and raised in Toledo, OH but relocated to Columbus to attend The Ohio State University. I have now lived in Columbus for almost ten years.

Why did you choose to work at Skylight?

I chose to work at Skylight because I felt Skylight would offer me great learning opportunities and help me grow in the financial services industry. I enjoy the culture of the company and the ability to have control over my tasks while at the same time always having a helping hand if it is needed.

What causes or community services do you have a passion for?

I am passionate about Parks and Recreation. I am happiest when I can spend time outdoors, be that camping, kayaking, hiking, or mountain biking. It is very important to me that we as a society protect and care for the nature around us. In doing so, I appreciate the work that state and local parks departments do and do my best to help where I can.

What life achievement are you most proud of?

I am most proud of serving as President of the International Affairs and Politics club at OSU.

What is the funniest “dad joke” you know?

The Grand Canyon is gorge-ous!

Any big plans coming up?

My girlfriend and I have a short trip to Chicago coming up that I am looking forward to.

Where is one of your favorite places to travel to, and why?

Anywhere in northern Michigan or the UP. It’s great for camping and anything outdoors.


Taylor Russell, Operations Assistant, Cleveland

Where are you from?

I am from Annapolis, Maryland.

Why did you choose to work at Skylight?

It is a dream job at a company full of friendly people.

Outside of the office, what do you enjoy doing?

Mostly in my free time, I enjoy reading, watching movies, and painting/ anything artistic.

What would a sandwich named after you have on it?

It would have turkey, bacon, cheese, lettuce, tomato, and ketchup, on it.

Where is one of your favorite places to travel to, and why?

One of my favorite places to visit is Germany because I love the food and culture. It is also a perk that one of my best friends lives there.

Thank you for sharing, everyone!
