My Story and Services

For me, retirement planning means more than providing my clients with investment advice. It means helping them maintain the financial independence they’ve worked their whole lives to achieve. My consultative process begins with an in-depth discussion of your current finances and future objectives. We’ll address issues you might have overlooked and determine how we can help you adjust your investment strategy to accommodate changing conditions and meet any unforeseen expenses and income demands that may arise during retirement.

A life of experience and hard work shape my expertise.

I have been a registered Financial Advisor since 2002, and I have been at Morgan Stanley since July of 2011.
