Of the 200 working mothers named top in their field, only two, including Vleck were from San Diego. Shook Research used service models, investing process, client retention, industry experience, review of compliance records, firm nominations, and quantitative criteria, such as assets under management and revenue generated for their firms in recognizing the top women wealth advisors who are mothers with at least one child living at home and under the age of 18.
