VP of Wealth Management & Senior Financial Advisor

WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT YOUR WORK?

Every client has different needs/goals and I embrace that challenge every day.  I enjoy finding the best solution for each client by thinking outside the box and utilizing my network of resources.  Moreover, it is personally rewarding to hear my clients say how they appreciate my due diligence and provided them with options they didn’t think about before.

 

WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO BECOME A FINANCIAL PROFESSIONAL?

I have always enjoyed helping individuals whether in athletics or professionally with assisting individuals and business owners.  Finances have always been a big concern and one that most individuals struggle to understand, so I wanted to bring a consultative approach to this topic and help people fully understand their options and what truly makes the most sense for their situations. 

 

HOW DO YOU HELP YOUR CUSTOMERS OVERCOME THEIR CHALLENGES?

Often times the clients with whom I work are victims of complacency.  Every client I meet garners my full attention.  I review your goals, objectives and assets as a fiduciary asset manager; acting in good faith, solidifying trust. I provide options so that together we can pick the best strategy based on the facts. 

 

WHAT ARE YOU MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO WITH YOUR WORK IN THE YEAR TO COME?

I am a young financial advisor with a mature skill set.  The opportunities to help individuals and businesses alike are endless.  I have the pleasure of seeing the relationships I establish today develop into the future. 

 

HOW CAN I HELP YOU?

My focus is two-fold:  employee retirement plans and wealth strategies for businesses and individuals.

I work with employers to create and maintain retirement plans to attract the best talent.  I also assist individuals, small business owners and their families, plan and implement estate planning strategies in the areas of protection, accumulation, and distribution of wealth. I find solutions based on a tax-favorable platform utilizing an array of products and services such as: life and disability insurance, investments and long-term care insurance.
