About Me

I began my career in the investment business when I joined Everen Securities/First Union in 1996, I then joined the Morgan Stanley family in 2001.  With more than 22 years of experience in the financial services industry, I work with clients to preserve and grow their wealth by helping them define and meet goals using a vast array of specialized resources. 

I am a native of Arvada, CO. I hold an Economics and Finance Degrees from the University of Colorado at Boulder.  I live in Broomfield, CO with my family, children Blake and Jordyn.  In my free time, I live an active lifestyle, and enjoy working out, coaching and attending my children’s sporting events and activities.  I am very involved in my community, and volunteers my time to several local charities.

About Me

I started my career by establishing a holistic wealth management practice to better serve my clients, who include individuals, families, businesses, and foundations/endowments.  Drawing on my knowledge as a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™, the team of experienced specialists and extensive resources offered by my firm, I provide personalized financial plans to meet my clients’ diverse needs and help them reach their goals.  To further enhance the unique experience provided to all of my clients, I partnered with my colleague, Bret Roberts, to form The Cherry Creek Group at Morgan Stanley.

I host educational, business networking, cultural, charitable, and women’s events.  I am an active member of numerous professional organizations, I participate in economics and entrepreneurial associations, and have continued my dedication in service to others through my commitment to such worthy organizations as Girls Inc., Children’s Hospital, Boys and Girls Club, Goodwill Youth Programs, Project CURE and Morris Animal Foundation.  I currently serve on the board of Resource Area For Teaching (RAFT) Colorado, YouthBiz/Young Americans, Shape Up US, and Women’s Foundation Empowerment Council.  I graduated magna cum laude from Boston College, with a BA in Economics.

I am a certified Pilates and personal trainer, an ardent tennis player, and a gourmet cook.  I enjoy traveling and a myriad of outdoor activities with my family, friends and dogs, in my home state of Colorado.
