1. Lessons From Ronald McDonald
- Friday, July 6, 2018
CIRCLES AND ARCHES. Our son, Gaines, called the other night and we talked a bit about business, his now and mine once.
My mind wandered to a convertible in a Christmas parade in Jonesboro, or maybe Jackson, Tennessee, or it could have been Tupelo. Wherever it was, Ronald McDonald jumped off the back of the convertible, ran along the edge of the crowd shaking hands with kids and doing the Funky Chicken with any volunteers he could find.

Hometown: Dayton, Ohio
Education: Received Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Ohio University in 1979 after completing an internship at Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic (Department of Psychiatry) at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.
Family: My wife, Candy; three daughters, Meghan, Kelly and Holly; one son, Dodge; and two young granddaughters, Harper and Rhiley.
Favorite quote: From my now deceased father: “Anything worth doing is worth doing well.”
Activities you enjoy outside of work: Several. Dining out and going to movies, plays, or concerts. We’ve already been to see Sheryl Crow at Mud Island. Anything outside and exercising. Before hip surgery I enjoyed running, but now I am confined to walking.
Who has had the greatest influence on you? I need to mention two. First would be my father, from whom I received my strong work ethic. Second would be professor Kay Deaux, who helped me find my way in psychology.
Why did you pursue a career in psychology? Like many undergraduates, I struggled to find my niche. I took a class with professor Kay Deaux, a well-known social psychologist, and afterwards she invited me to work in her laboratory.
In seconds, I was hooked on psychology. I needed only to find the right area of specialization, which for me was clinical psychology.
What attracted you to the University of Memphis? Many things. The quality of the faculty, students and staff. The exciting projects being pursued. The many possibilities to collaborate with folks on and off campus. The opportunity to help make a very strong program even more so.
What do you consider your greatest professional accomplishments? Contributing to the knowledge base of psychology and the professional development of students and more junior colleagues.
What do you most enjoy about your work? Working with students and seeing their eyes light up when they get excited by psychology.

Hometown: Hot Springs, Ark.
Education: B.S. in finance, University of Memphis; MBA, Union University
Work Experience: Eight years at American Express Financial Advisors; six and a half years in banking, five at First Tennessee
Family: Husband and college sweetheart, Daniel; and two-year-old son, Colin.
Favorite quote: “Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul – and sings the tunes without the words – and never stops at all.” – Emily Dickinson
Who has had the greatest influence on you? The two people who have influenced me most are my mother and my first boss, Harish Vishria. By example, my mom instilled a work ethic, mental toughness and positive attitude that has gotten me through every experience in my life. (Vishria) taught me the difference between a dream and a goal and gave me the ability to teach others how to achieve their dreams by setting goals.
Why did you pursue a career in financial services? As a child, I saw firsthand the difference asset management can make in not only one person’s life but that of a whole multigenerational family. When I was about 10 years old, two older family members passed away. I learned at that early age how difficult it can be to struggle with the emotional and financial challenges that can come with a loss in a family. I saw then how important it is to be prepared for life’s uncertainties so that one can make the right choices.
What do you consider your greatest professional accomplishments? I consider the everyday difference I am able to make in my clients’ lives my greatest accomplishment.
What do you most enjoy about your work? Each person’s financial situation is different. When I chose to major in business instead of art or literature, I thought I was giving up the chance to use my creativity. I have found that developing a plan for an individual, a family, or a business takes just as much creativity as writing a novel or painting a picture.
