Planning Specialties

As an independent member of Buckingham Strategic Partners, the investment recources I have access to are wide and deep.  Most importantly, they are evidence-based and aimed to make perfect sense from our clients'  individual point-of-view.

I oftent serve clients navigating transitions and gained much expertise in helping clients facing the following:

  • Divorce

  • Trustee & caregiver responsibilities
  • Planning for tax-efficient retirement spend-down
  • Equity compensation / stock option planning 

Additional Information

Life is full of transitions.

Babies arriving, growing and leaving. Years passing and altering. Jobs changing. New ideas coming. Needs evolving. Priorities rearranging. Problems surfacing. Families transforming. In-laws adding. A generation growing. Another fading. Diagnoses troubling. Legacy revealing.

Although money is rarely the reason or purpose for these transitions, it delineates the possibilities open to us. As such, we serve clients who seek clarity about their options and path ahead.

Our experience confirms that people don’t mind change as much as they mind being changed.

Therefore, we empower clients to make informed decisions. It’s a co-active process that we facilitate by supporting clients in finding their best way forward.
