Take the First Step: Create a Plan

Passion for helping others and commitment to building relationships are at the core of my practice. That translates to value for my clients.

Even amongst highly educated people, many have never gotten a sound grounding in financial concepts and strategies. Financial planning should be a seamless, empowering, exciting adventure. But, for many Americans, it is daunting and rarely at the top of their priority list. We know it is vital to make your money work for you. We know there are significant consequences to not prioritizing this conversation. Yet most find a way to stay stuck in a pattern of procrastination.

“It's just not the right time.”
“Let's talk after the Holidays.”
“I'm so slammed at work and don't have the bandwidth.”

What could be more important than optimizing the dollars you work so hard every day to earn?


My Process

I start my process with an introductory meeting where I learn about you, your current financial picture, your goals, and your needs. I aim to understand where you've been, where you are now, where you want to go, and most importantly, why. I construct a comprehensive plan that addresses gaps in your current planning and includes tailored recommendations to help you achieve your goals.

I take a holistic planning approach to cultivate my client relationships and become your trusted advisor. I help you become financially secure by matching your needs with innovative solutions using world-class insurance services and internationally recognized investment products. I can help to demystify the complexity around the financial markets, mentoring my clients - especially women, LGBTQ+, diverse communities, activists, entrepreneurs, and creatives - to help you create the economic security you have always desired so you can live your best life.
