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

Carol Goolsby, Financial Professional, West Virginia

Where are you from?

I was born and raised in South-Central Pennsylvania.  I currently reside in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia. 

Why did you choose to work at Skylight?

I am a passionate business educator who realizes the struggles most people face regarding their personal finances. Skylight provides me with the opportunity to move into a new level of assisting others to overcome and discover true financial freedom.

What life achievement are you most proud of?

I am most proud of raising four beautiful children who are now grown adults and are making a positive difference in their communities. 

Outside of the office, what do you enjoy doing?

I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I cherish these moments even more since the pandemic denied us the opportunity.

David Freno, Financial Professional, Cleveland

Where are you from?

I was born and raised on the east side of Cleveland and now live in Cleveland Heights. I spent several years after college in Philadelphia and considered it a second home as my sister has lived there for the past 20 years.

Why did you choose to work at Skylight?

Building out my own business while being supported by experienced financial professionals and a team of specialists… it was a no-brainer!

Outside of the office, what do you enjoy doing?

I enjoy all forms of nature very much and especially like horticulture and foraging. You’ll want me on your survivalist team!

What is something about you that surprises most people?

I studied to be a concert pianist at the Cleveland Institute of Music.

Any big plans coming up?

My three older siblings and I are taking our parents to Yosemite next summer for their 40th wedding anniversary. This will be the first time my entire family will be together on vacation in at least 15 years.

Conner McClure, Financial Professional, Dublin

Where are you from?

Originally from Jamestown, OH (population in 2012 was 2,012), but I stayed in Columbus after graduating from OSU.

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

I have volunteered and served on the board for The Franklinton Arts District, whose mission is to ‘to expand the acceptance, appreciation, support, and impact of the arts and artists in Franklinton.’

Outside of the office, what do you enjoy doing?

I get out and golf any chance I get, rain or shine. Specifically, I enjoy finding my ball after my drive inevitably ends up anywhere but the fairway.

What is the funniest “dad joke” you know?

I have a friend who is a successful bird salesman, but he’s been having a lot of inventory issues. His products keep flying off the shelves.

Thanks for sharing, everyone, and welcome to Skylight!
