Planning for a confident retirement

I deliver personalized financial advice to help you achieve your goals, today and tomorrow, through our Confident Retirement®approach. I start with a conversation about key financial areas including covering essentials, ensuring lifestyle, preparing for the unexpected and leaving a legacy.

By identifying clear steps to take toward your goals, I can help take the uncertainty out of planning for your financial future. Working together, I can help you feel more confident, connected, and in control of your financial life.

An alliance with Great Southern Bank

As an Ameriprise financial advisor, one of my missions is to support local institutions and businesses in my community. This is why I’m part of the alliance between Ameriprise and Great Southern Bank.

Through Great Southern Bank's investment services program, I’m able to collaborate with Great Southern Bank’s staff, and provide financial and investment planning services to their clients. It’s another way for me to help more individuals and families achieve financial wellness.
