Emily Dowden is more than an employee. She has literally poured herself out empowering Abel Hall to become Baton Rouge’s premiere boutique wealth management firm. After joining Leo Abel in 2011 she quickly rose the ranks from administrator, to being head of all operations, and now she serves as the firm’s Chief Compliance Officer. Again, much more than a stellar employee Emily is a friend to clients and staff. Having been raised by an incredible man, father and example in Phillip Dowden she learned first-hand the value of a job well done, being quick to listen, caring eye contact and the primacy of relationships. We often joke that Emily has no free time, but in her “free time” she enjoys the invaluable company of her precious grandmother Julia Rambin (who makes the best home-made jelly). She makes time for walks at Highland Road Park, her best friends since high-school Brittany and Katelyn, and of course Netflix. On behalf of our entire team at Abel Hall we believe Emily will be one of your strongest advocates, and you’ll quickly see why she’s made herself an integral part of our warm and friendly culture.
