I enjoy spending time with my family and my grandchildren and love watching my grandchildren play sports.

My involvement with the Financial Planning Ministry at Holy Name of Mary Church has been extremely gratifying. Being able to provide financial planning information on important topics that affect our community is a unique opportunity that I value and take very seriously.

In an effort to give back to our community during times of deep sorrow, I am also offering my services to various Bereavement Groups. Providing our service with profound respect and understanding is extremely important to me.
