I became a financial advisor so I could help people the way Edward Jones helped me after my mom died suddenly. With their knowledge and expertise, I was able to put a strategy in place to achieve financial stability. Fast forward several years to when I decided to launch my own career as a financial advisor, and my experience as an Edward Jones client made partnering with them the obvious choice.
My mission is to help clients organize their finances to be fully PREPARED throughout life. This includes:
P - professional investment and savings strategies;
R - risk assessment and insurance strategies;
E - estate consolidation and generational wealth transfer;
P - philanthropy and guidance for gifting and living generously;
A - analysis of potential tax implications and opportunities;
R - regular cash flow, protected income, and cash management;
E – exception for income windfalls and inheritance strategies;
D - decisions during financial life transitions.
My approach is straightforward: I get to know what is important to you. I use an established process to build personalized strategies to help you reach your goals. I will partner with you throughout your life to help keep you on track.
I especially love working with women and small business owners because they face unique challenges when it comes to achieving financial stability.
My husband, Chris, and I moved to Plainfield in 2018; we are thrilled to be the fifth generation living and working in this beautiful community.
