My passion for investing and finance started in my early twenties. My husband and I had just started a family and wanted to plan for the future. There was a friend of ours who had retired well, and we asked to sit down with him to discuss how to build wealth. That is where it all began as he explained the value of quality investing and creating strategies to have your money work for you.

Several years later, I began a career at Edward Jones and can't imagine doing anything else. As your financial advisor, I believe it’s important to understand your financial goals and the level of risk you’re comfortable accepting when investing in order to balance it with the steps necessary to help you reach your long-term goals.

I also believe that it is important to be continually learning and developing my personal knowledge in more advanced wealth strategies. In 2019, I completed the Accredited Asset Management Specialist™ (AAMS®) designation.

The College for Financial Planning awards the AAMS® designation to individuals who successfully complete a 12-module professional education program, pass a final examination, commit to its code of ethics and agree to pursue continuing education. This allows me to more fully address the specific needs of high-net-worth clients.

My team includes two outstanding branch office administrators, Khara Curtiss and Baiba Green. Khara and Baiba are dedicated to providing the highest level of personalized service in our industry. I use an established process to organize your finances, document your goals and develop a strategy to reach them in the most tax efficient way.

On a personal note, my husband, Tracey, and I recently moved to Gaylord from Charlevoix. We have five grown children and are blessed with three grandchildren. We own an active beef/crop farm in Charlevoix that our son manages. In our spare time, we enjoy being in the great outdoors, spending time with family and friends and giving back to others and the community.
