My Approach

What are your dreams and goals for retirement? I can help you achieve them with our exclusive Confident Retirement® approach. It all starts with a personalized conversation, where we'll discuss retirement needs - covering essentials, ensuring lifestyle, preparing for the unexpected, and leaving a legacy. By breaking retirement down into doable steps, we can help take the uncertainty out of planning for your financial future.

Take a few minutes now for a quick confidence check. Your responses can help jumpstart our conversation.



  • Reading.  I enjoy reading non-fictional books and articles centered around historical, theological, or economic themes.
  • Projects at home.   I find a good deal of relaxation and fulfillment around the completion of home improvement projects.
  • Internet marketing.  I find the world of internet marketing to be far more complex than I imagined it to be, and I have become a student of the topic for my own personal development.
