Experience and Training:
I’ve been helping families with their finances since 2006. I’m a Certified Financial Planner™ professional (since 2013), a Registered Life Planner® since 2021), have a Master of Science degree in Personal Financial Planning from The College for Financial Planning (2010), and specialized training in financial life planning and the First Step Cash Management System™ from Money Quotient.
I’ve helped several physicians, nurses, executives, and managers over the years. Early in my career I worked as a paraplanner for a wealth management firm that worked exclusively with doctors. I have also worked with executives and managers at AT&T, Texas Instruments, Palo Alto Networks, Raytheon, and Microsoft.
