Why am I a financial advisor?
My mission in life is to improve the happiness and well-being of those around me. I began my practice at Edward Jones in 2010 in order to help others achieve their financial goals.

What I wish for my clients to feel:
- They are listened to and understood. That they can speak openly about what is important to them.
- Their values are reflected in goals which we create and review together.
- They are in control and know if they are on track.

How do I do this?
- A discovery conversation to get to know each other.
- An established process to create personalized strategies.
- Technology that allows you to visualize and track your financial progress.
- Transparency of fees – You will receive a summary of costs report regularly as part of our established process.

I am a PA native who has been residing in the DC area for over 25 years. I’m a Virginia Tech Hokie and I always look forward to attending a football game each year. My parents are local, and I enjoy visiting with them and golfing with my dad. In my free time, I play guitar and perform locally. I am passionate about mountain biking and weightlifting.
