My community involvement is with the Pompano Beach Kiwanis as the past president. I'm also on their board of directors and serve as membership chairperson and inter-club chairperson.
Since I've been with the Pompano Beach Chamber of Commerce, I've been named the Volunteer of the Year in 2015 and the Ambassador of the Year in 2016. I am also involved with the Commerce of Education Foundation. I am a board member of Broward County Boys & Girls Clubs, a member of the Lauderdale By The Sea Garden Club and a member of the Lauderdale By The Sea Chamber of Commerce.
I focus on outlining a clear approach to designing the financial strategy that fits the financial and life goals of individuals and families. My diverse background and training enables me to help clients pursue their long-term financial goals through comprehensive, individualized financial strategies, including analysis of my clients' goals, needs and risk tolerance.
I have trained and developed over 1,000 financial advisors across the country starting from my first year in the industry and throughout my successful career.
