Director of Operations
At an age when most kids are coming to grips with multiplication tables and simple fractions, Barbara Gruss was already learning how to balance a checkbook and fill out tax forms — and enjoying it. It’s no surprise that Barbara would go on to make numbers her profession, and why our clients are glad she did.
As director of operations for the Levine Financial Group, Barbara’s service-first mindset embodies our commitment to going above and beyond every day. She is the go-to contact for clients whenever they need assistance, from account status and changes to compliance matters and answering any administrative questions that clients may have.
Growing up in southern California, it was Barbara’s mom who first introduced her 9-year-old daughter to the importance of understanding finances and numbers. Barbara’s affinity for math can be traced to those lessons, which served her well when she first began working in the industry.
Bored with the sunny SoCal climate (is that even possible?), Barbara relocated to New Jersey in 2014. Because she’s a fan of all things outdoors — including camping — she finds the changing of the seasons invigorating. An ASPCA volunteer and animal lover, Barbara also indulges her competitive nature as an avid gamer in her spare time.
