I was a nationally competitive gymnast from age 6 through 22, when I competed in the NCAA for UMASS Amherst. These were years of discipline and focus. I learned to be mindful of my personal growth, as well as those of my teammates. I carry these values, spirit and teamwork into my practice as an advisor.

I grew up just outside of NYC. Today I am lucky to live and work in the city, and still be close enough to spend time with my niece and nephew.

While in Graduate School, I was particularly struck by a course focused on the Psychology of Money. I’ve learned to be profoundly helpful to my clients by understanding more than just the numbers.
