I have been helping members pursue their financial goals for more than 20 years.

I've helped a great number of people make sound financial decisions that have stood the test of time while maintaining consistency with their individual comfort level and investment timeline. Periodically, I will review your situation and make adjustments as needed. It just makes sense - as your life changes, so do your financial needs. And I'll be here for you at every stage of your life.

What does "Certified Financial Planner Really Mean?"

When you search for a financial advisor, it means everything.

The CFP® designation is easily the most respected credential a financial services professional can earn. And for good reason.

It means my colleagues and I have completed a comprehensive financial planning curriculum and passed a rigorous exam covering financial and tax planning, employee benefits and retirement planning, estate planning, investment management and insurance. But it doesn’t end there. CFP® practitioners must take part in continuing education to maintain their certification and ensure they are up to date on the latest developments in their profession.

Equally important, it means we adhere to the strict ethical standards set forth by the CFP® Board's Code of Ethics and Professional Responsibility.

CFP® practitioners put your interests first, providing financial planning advice and services based on your needs and delivering them with objectivity and integrity.

As a CFP® practitioner, I understand that investments are essential to an overall financial plan, but not financial solutions in and of themselves. I have the education and experience to create integrated financial plans using not only investments, but also strategies for tax reduction, wealth accumulation, wealth preservation and tax-efficient wealth transfer. What’s more, I have the knowledge to plan for your long-term goals, and the experience to implement, oversee and revise these plans through the years.
