About me

Before you can begin working toward achieving your financial goals, you must first determine what’s important to you and your family. Does that include putting your children through college, making sure you've saved enough for retirement, leaving a legacy to your heirs, or something else? I can help you define and prioritize your goals as the first step in planning to achieve them.

While being a Colorado native, my daughter and I have lived in La Grange Park since 2011. I began my career as a financial advisor after several years as a Ph.D. chemist working at Argonne National Lab. Today I enjoy helping the residents of La Grange Park, my home town, as well other professionals in the greater Chicago area. Outside of work I enjoyed serving as Vice President of the La Grange Park Chamber of Commerce and as member of the Village Field Club.
