My Approach

I strongly believe that financial planning and an ongoing relationship with a financial advisor are the most valuable investments you can make. I ask targeted questions and listen to my clients' dreams and goals. Then we work together to develop appropriate and manageable plans that build on what they've already worked hard to create. These plans are reviewed regularly and adjustments are made so they continue to work well into the future.



I have three great kids who keep me very busy:

Katie is a Graphic Designer in Kansas City.

Michael recently graduated from the University of Missouri - Columbia and has started his career as a financial advisor.

Maddie is a Sophomore at Lafayette High School who spends most of her time on the volleyball court.
