As your Edward Jones financial advisor, I know that your financial goals are about more than just money. They are an expression of your values. That's why when we first meet, I want to get to know you. Our successful partnership is founded on three commitments that I make to you: I will take the time to understand what's most important to you; I will use an established process to develop a personalized strategy for you; and I will partner with you over the long term to help keep you on track. These commitments are why I became a financial advisor with Edward Jones: so that I could help people in truly meaningful ways.
I focus on helping investors feel informed, empowered and in control. Because women have historically felt less comfortable with investing and financial planning, I am a particularly good match for female clients. I work with multigenerational families, individuals and small businesses, and regularly collaborate with their CPAs and attorneys. Client confidentiality is the highest priority.
Prior to becoming a financial advisor in 2018, I served as a non-profit administrator for 20 years, and trained as a hospice chaplain. My first career was as a baker, and I still find ways to incorporate cooking and food travel into my weekends and leisure time. I am also active in my community, having founded a 70-person women's running group that literally keeps me moving!
I am originally from Richmond, VA, and have lived in Western Massachusetts since 1986, when I came here to attend Northfield Mount Hermon School. I went on to attend Smith College, and have called the Pioneer Valley 'home' ever since. I now live in Greenfield, MA with my spouse, two children and animals: a rescue dog, two cats and a flock of backyard chickens.
