My interest in the world of finance began when I was just a kid - I remember seeing in the newspaper when the Dow hit 1000, I've been hooked ever since. But even more than my personal interest in finance, being able to help my clients reach their goals is the best part of my career as a financial advisor. I love being a part of our community and providing a needed service.
As a branch team, we support our clients by understanding what their needs are and how they feel. One of my favorite client stories is a man who came in because he was fed up with his job but wasn't sure he could manage to retire. Working together, we determined he could in fact retire and focus his time on things he cared about. This client left our office in tears knowing that his goal was actually in reach - that day was life-changing for both my client and myself.
We focus on helping individual, families and businesses with their retirement planning, estate/legacy strategies and preparing for the unexpected. For business owners, I will work with their CPA to help with cash management and tax-mitigation opportunities. For widows or divorcees, we help them navigate finances on their own and stay on track over the long term.
