Q & A


What inspired you to pursue your career in financial management?

I lived with my grandparents for much of my childhood. My grandfather sold insurance and watching the level of care he had for his clients and his commitment to always putting clients first is still something ingrained in my professional beliefs.

Why is your work important, especially today?

I think my specialty is helping families identify their most pressing financial issues and then finding creative ways to solve them based upon a diverse set of tools and resources. I think in a difficult economic environment – one that we haven’t seen in quite some time – that becomes an important opportunity to make clients feel secure.

What should your clients know the most about you?

That I spend far more time thinking about them and the well being of their families than they realize.

What kind of clients work best for you?

Clients that are thoughtful, though they may or may not have specific acumen around investments or other financial matters. Clients that care about the future of their wealth and what that will allow them to do for their families and their communities.

What do you do in your personal life that helps you help your clients?

I serve on a number of non-profit boards which helps me bring perspective to my clients and their families and at times provides them with a much appreciated philanthropic outlet.

How would you describe your best day doing what you do?

My best day is when I am able to exceed a client’s expectations in helping them to achieve a goal or tackle a problem that they are faced with.

What does the world need now more than anything?
