My approach

Your financial goals are individual, and I can help you achieve them. I take the time to understand what’s truly important to you — whether it’s saving for college, retiring the way you want, making smart investments or anything else.

Family time with my two boys is how I like to spend my free time. We love to play with our new Labradoodle, Theo! The boys and I like to downhill ski, golf, head north to the family cottage, and swim in our pool with friends. Being their mom is the best thing ever!
