As a financial advisor since 2009, I have advised many clients during different life stages, complex investment situations and ever-changing market conditions. My goal has been to reduce my clients' stress around financial matters and to clarify their life goals. I partner with my clients in a way that is approachable and open for people to express themselves, ask questions and learn.
With having a Certified Financial Planner (CFP®)* designation, I have gained knowledge that helps me serve my clients in a multitude of areas, including planning for retirement, insurance, legacy planning, tax issues, investments and planning for education.
I create tailored solutions to solve the unique needs of my clients, including:
- Individual investors who are serious about developing a workable financial strategy, whether just beginning to save for retirement, recently retired or interested in estate considerations.
- High net worth clients who are looking for tax sensitive solutions.
- Small business owners who want to invest through their company or develop a strategy for the personal portfolio.
I became a financial advisor with Edward Jones in order to serve clients in a deep and meaningful way. Our financial health determines so much of our life's trajectory and it is an honor to help my clients organize, plan, protect and transfer their wealth. I hope to help you work toward a successful financial future as well, so give our office a call or stop by to get started.
