    The essence of practice is proper financial analysis to help protect families and businesses from the economic hazards associated with four basic human concerns: death, illness, disability, and outliving one’s financial resources. My mission is to provide excellent service and work with families and businesses in reaching their goals.

    As a Financial Services Professional, I am qualified to work with individuals and businesses to implement financial strategies based on your needs and desires.

    My role is to develop a detailed financial analysis, to effectively communicate complex financial independence and security. My primary goal, though, is to bring value to my clients’ lives and help them reach their financial goals by addressing their needs for both today and the future.

    I am confident that my knowledge of the industry, my ability to assess the needs and wants of my clients and the relationship building that I distinctively possess can help you walk away feeling secure about your financial strategy.

    I received my BS in business from the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University.
