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.



My latest passion is trapeze. It was a "bucket list" item that I thought I would do once, and now I find myself selecting vacation destinations on the basis of whether or not the town boasts a trapeze school.

I also enjoy Rock Wall Climbing (the plastic, indoor variety), skiing (snow and water), and conducting financial seminars for area businessess. I would love to present at your company! Just have your human resources director call me and we can discuss specifics.

Outside of that, I enjoy spending time with my nieces and nephews in Oklahoma, Illinois, and Arkansas. I am becoming a water & amusement park connoisseur with them.
