My Approach

Why Do We Do What We Do

I know the amount of stress that people can have regarding financial decisions. I have a passion for finding solutions to help people reduce that stress and feel more confident that they are making informed financial decisions.

What We Do

As a Christian financial advisor, I draw on biblical principles to provide financial and investment advice.

How We Do What We Do

I start by listening so that we can identify and prioritize your financial issues. Then I use my financial knowledge and experience to help you address those issues one at a time.
