Areas of Expertise

Here are my areas of expertise, which I will use to provide you with customized recommendations that will help you plan for your financial future.

  • Financial Planning
    Long-term financial security doesn't happen by chance. Many things in life can have an impact - positive or negative - on your financial well-being. I'm here to help you take control of your future. Together we'll identify your most important goals and dreams, and build and implement a financial plan to help you achieve them. And because life is unpredictable, we'll monitor your progress on a regular basis to ensure your plan evolves as your needs and the situation around you changes.
  • Retirement Income Planning
    Becoming a retiree doesn't mean retirement planning ends. Spending your retirement assets can actually be more complex than building them. The investment and savings strategies you used to accumulate wealth may need to be adjusted as you prepare for and enter retirement. Together we can develop a plan to help you achieve financial security in retirement - through our unique strategy designed to preserve and continue to manage your wealth, protect against the risks that can affect your retirement years, and provide you with predictable and steady income for life.
  • Education Funding
    With the cost of higher education rising faster than the rate of inflation, many families wonder how to prepare for this expense. I specialize in education funding and can help you explore the right options for saving the money you need to send your children to college.
  • Special Needs Planning
    Planning for a dependent with special needs can be complicated. It is recommended that you work with a team of experts - including an attorney, a financial professional and a social service professional. As a key member to the special needs team, I provide solutions for families with special needs.
