As a financial advisor, what brings me great joy is to be a valued part of my client's lives. I have been able to help hundreds of individuals and businesses by understanding what is most important to them, and now, many of them look toward their future with confidence. By partnering with you, your CPA, your attorney and other professionals, I can help determine the most appropriate financial strategy for you, your family and your future.

In addition to my role as a financial advisor, I currently serve as the women's inclusion leader for Edward Jones in the southeast region of Louisiana. In that role, I focus on recruitment and retention of women in finance. I lead by educating on the importance of diversity and inclusion. I also mentor new financial advisors that are just starting to build their business with Edward Jones.

Prior to working as a financial advisor with Edward Jones, my background was in financial support analysis with the Jefferson Parish District Attorney, management and client care with Bellsouth Business Systems and small business development and entrepreneurship with The Bayou Sports Shop via the Small Business Development Center.

In the spirit of giving back, I volunteer with several charitable organizations including: No One Fights Alone (a local Westbank Cancer charity), The Boys and Girls Club of New Orleans, Gretna's Annual Ringing in the Arts event and the Alzheimer's Association. I am currently on the board of directors for the Touchdown Club of New Orleans and chairperson for their annual Meet the Saints luncheon. I am a member of The American Business Women's Association, Bellsouth Pioneers, the Italian American Society and the Jefferson Parish Chamber of Commerce. In my free time, I parade with the Krewe of Cleopatra.

I have been married to my husband, Greg, for 23 years. We both grew up in Gretna, where we still reside today. We have two children and together we enjoy football, camping and traveling.
