Financial Advisor

As a financial advisor, my primary role is to act as a trusted advisor and primary point of contact for the families, individuals, and non-profit organizations who we serve. My role transcends the traditional duties of an investment advisor or planner; I am committed to serving as a Chief Financial Officer, dedicated to the financial well-being of all of our valued clients. 

I take a holistic look at each individual’s financial picture, rather than viewing areas in silos. The opportunity to help others plan for significant life events, whether retirement, selling a business, or generational wealth planning, and then seeing them achieve their dreams is unparalleled. One of my primary passions is to help educate female investors and empower them to control their finances. Nothing gives me more fulfillment than helping a family plan the road map for their financial future or offering a business owner peace of mind.

I am proud to have been selected as one of Forbes Top Next-Gen Wealth Advisors in 2023.

2023 Forbes Top Next-Gen Wealth Advisors created by SHOOK Research. Presented in Aug 2023 based on data gathered from March 2022 to March 2023. 3738 Advisors were considered, 1464 Advisors were recognized. Not indicative of advisor’s future performance.
