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.



I have found trapeze lessons to be great fun. I am also attempting to recruit a niece into joining in trapeze lessons with me, while my family is trying to talk me into playing golf.

In addition, I enjoy rock wall climbing (the plastic, indoor variety), skiing (snow and water), spending time with my nieces and nephews and conducting financial seminars for area businesses. I would love to present at your company! Just have your human resources director call me and we can discuss specifics.
