About My Practice
My goal in working with clients is to help them define and achieve their goals and objectives by working in a "partnership" type relationship. I make recommendations based on what is right for my clients and believe a client should be comfortable with making decisions and in taking the actions recommended. While I have the required knowledge, training, experience and tools to assist my clients, in the end they are responsible for making the decisions, once given recommendations, and their actions on these decisions will determine the achievement of their goals.
I specialize in comprehensive financial planning, with the belief that by addressing all areas of a client's financial situation I can have the greatest positive impact and help clients avoid potential pitfalls. I will, however, work with a client in a specific area of their situation, such as investment planning.
I abide by the strict standards of the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards as well as the rules/regulations of the insurance commission(s) and all regulatory bodies under which I practice.
To maintain my license(s) and / or designation(s), I am required to earn a minimum of 30 continuing education credits every year.
I will provide prospective clients with references.
I will provide a free initial consultation to prospective clients so that we may determine if their needs and my practice are well-matched.
I have been in the financial industry since 1985 and have extensive knowledge in many areas of business. My education included concentrated training in management and entrepreneurship, which is valuable when working with businesses. My extensive certifications, education, and training allow me to work with many different clients.
