Gracious, it’s hard to believe I’ve been with JDH almost six months! On the one hand, the time has flown by and on the other hand, it feels as if I’ve been here for years already.
It’s been a pleasure getting to know some of you in the past few months, and I look forward to meeting more of you at our upcoming Broadway Under the Stars event on June 17th and August 12th. Since I’m going to be sticking around here for a while, I thought I’d tell you a little more about myself.
One of my interests, which I’m sure I share with more than a few of you, is music. I started out singing and dancing along to Cats in my living room when I was five. (Sadly, no home movies of those glorious performances still exist.)
I learned to love folk music from my mother and Pink Floyd from my dad; classical choral pieces from my choir director in church; fifties crooners from my grandmother; punk and jazz from dorm-mates in college; and the blues from an amazing, year-long road trip in my early thirties. Fun fact: my mother couldn’t carry a tune in a bucket when I was born. We spent so much time together commuting to theatre rehearsals and singing along to musicals in the car that we now can sing harmonies together!
After a friend taught me how to play guitar, I ended up recording my own album as a singer-songwriter. Here I am regaling friends at an impromptu farm concert:
I joined a Dixieland band a few years ago, where I started out playing washboard and graduated to a full drum kit. Dixieland is such a fun style for a drummer. It’s full of whistles, kazoos, washboards, and cowbell hits. The Sebtown Strutters, as we named ourselves, can be seen from time to time playing at the Community Market in Sebastopol or at private events throughout the county.
Next time we speak, tell me about the music in your life! Do you listen to music at home? In your car? Have you played an instrument? Are you a shower singer? I’m a firm believer that everybody can make music, and I encourage it in every way I can.

For any of you local folks who support community theatre, you may remember Rebekah starring in 6th Street Playhouse’s production of “Thoroughly Modern Millie” last spring. Well, Rebekah was back at it, this time with Spreckels Theater Company in Rohnert Park.
Rebekah was featured as Carrie Pipperidge, best friend to the other female lead character, Julie Jordan. Read more
JDH Wealth Management spent some time this summer Under the Stars in Jack London State Park at the amazing Broadway Under the Stars concerts presented by Transcendence Theatre Company.
As a business in Sonoma County, JDH Wealth has the unique opportunity to partner with Sonoma State University’s School of Business and Economics (SBE) Mentor Program. Tim Delaney, Managing Partner at JDH Wealth, is now in the midst of his second semester as a mentor.
Each semester students apply to the SBE Mentor Program and go through a thorough selection process. About 25 students are then paired with a professional mentor in their field of interest to learn more about the profession, company, and industry.
This semester Tim is working with Mitch, a Finance major at SSU in his junior year. Read more
For the past seven years, Matt Delaney has participated in Rotary International’s Festival of the Brotherhood in Mexico.
Read below about his most recent experience.
JDH Wealth Management recently took a firm retreat to San Diego in southern California. The retreat was a great time to discuss different topics relating to JDH… and since we were in sunny San Diego, we decided to have a little fun with our families as well!
Can you blame us?
