As an Edward Jones financial advisor, my primary goal is to understand what's important to you and help you develop a personalized strategy to meet your long-term financial goals. Whether that goal is planning for retirement, tax efficiency or passing your wealth to the next generation, I can help.

In 2015, I began my Edward Jones career with a mission to serve individuals, families and small business owners in Palatine and the surrounding communities.

I graduated in 1987 from the University of Illinois where I received a bachelor's degree from the College of Communications. For more than two decades I worked at a local newspaper before answering the call of financial advising.

My husband and I chose Palatine, where I grew up, to raise our two boys. I've held volunteer posts with the Winston Campus PTA, the Buehler YMCA and Palatine High School athletic teams. I am on the board of the Palatine Area Chamber of Commerce and in 2019 was recognized as the chamber's Volunteer of the Year. I'm also a member of the Palatine High School Pirate Booster Club, the Women's Club of Inverness, Palatine's Women in Business Advisory Forum and Biz2Biz Northwest, a business-to-business networking group.

Edward Jones built its business by treating clients as we want to be treated; a simple idea that still makes sense in today's complex marketplace. With the thousands of people and advanced technology at the Edward Jones home office supporting me and my branch office administrator, Linda Wilkinson, in our Palatine office, we have the resources to help you reach your long-term financial goals.
