Planning Specialties

“Our happiest clients are not the ones with the most money. Rather, our happiest clients are those who live within their means and give their time and money away to things they’re passionate about.”

Knowing full well that financial planning is about far more than numbers, I love to help clients walk through both the routine and the significant decisions in life. While I could have been perfectly happy with a career as a mathematician or counselor; I’m delighted to get to be both…often within the same meeting or even sentence. I thrive on being able to transform complex financial and relational issues into practical plans and clear action steps.
