My Approach

Our unique and collaborative Dream> Plan> Track> ® approach to financial planning starts with your dreams, not just the numbers. When we work together my first focus will be to learn more about your financial, personal and professional aspirations. I will take this information and leverage my financial management experience to present you with a customized plan. Building and then managing a financial plan is an ongoing, collaborative experience and I believe in regularly checking in with my clients to ensure we’re tracking progress against your plan and making adjustments if necessary.



  • My family and I enjoy adventure traveling around the world.

  • We are enjoying being new grandparents and love to spend time with our family.
