My approach

Knowing how to make the most of your Social Security benefits can be confusing, and mistakes such as taking benefits too early can be costly. With our exclusive Confident Retirement® approach and my background in retirement planning, I help my clients and their dependents take full advantage of their Social Security benefits. I collaborate with my clients to provide personalized, goal-based advice to help them gain financial confidence to live the full and rich life they’ve earned.

You can help hungry people in our community. Please join other volunteers to help sort and pack produce, food drive or bulk food items in preparation for delivery to our emergency food outlets on an annual basis. Volunteers must be age 14+ to participate in our Help the Hungry program.
