How would you describe what you do here? Create an organization focused on meeting people where they are. Our team works together with our clients to gain a clear understanding of their hopes and dreams to meet their future financial needs.

What is something about you that people may not know? In third grade, I think, I had to eat lunch in the Principal’s office due to excellent classroom behavior.
What is your definition of “happiness"? Happiness is fleeting. Eating chocolate cake with caramel icing and ice cream, that is happiness☺. Joy, on the other hand, is sustained and permanent. Joy is peace-filled hope for the future that is deep-seated and endures through adversity.
If you’re not at the office, where can we find you? Hopefully enjoying a cool date with my wife. I enjoy time with good friends and spending time with family.
