About Us

Finding Your Fit

Regardless of your life stage, income or goals, our team can work with you to create a financial plan to help you manage your short-term goals, long-term aspirations and work toward meeting your financial targets.

We offer investments, access to insurance and comprehensive financial planning through Waddell & Reed. Whether you have basic needs or a more complex financial picture, I can help.

Client Centered

No one strategy fits everyone, which is why every client gets our undivided attention—from planning to execution to follow-up. We take a proactive approach to helping you develop a strategy to address your financial goals and objectives, using the most efficient methods available.

Recognizing that everyone encounters challenges along the way, we strive to anticipate and address those situations as they occur. We want to keep you on track toward a meaningful and purpose-driven financial future.

We invite you to check out all the material on our website. If you have any questions, please send us an email or call the office. We look forward to speaking with you.
