Advisor profile

My approach

One of life’s constants is change. Life is made up of a series of transitions. Some of these are wonderful and planned for: earning a degree, buying a home, building a family, establishing a career and enjoying a comfortable retirement. Other events teach us that life is not always fair: separation or divorce, loss of a spouse or child, a health crisis or job loss. Financial planning allows you to prepare in advance for life’s best moments and it allows you to make adjustments when life proves to be unfair. As a financial advisor with CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ and Certified Divorce Financial Analyst™ certifications, I can help you identify your financial options and plan accordingly for your financial future.
