    About Me

    As a Certified Financial Planner™ for more than 30 years, I believe in educating individuals and families about the importance of forming a financial plan and addressing challenges that the plan may uncover. I strive to make planning for retirement and other long-term goals simple and interactive.

    Integrating Social Security planning into a retirement income strategy is one of our areas of focus. Social Security is one of the least understood retirement sources and we enjoy presenting to groups to help them make the government’s retirement program work harder for them. We relish interacting with pre-retirees to identify and help solve common challenges like income distribution and coordinating different retirement assets. We are good listeners who can appeal to the emotional side of a client’s wealth.

    Through Morgan Stanley, we offer clients a wide choice of solutions and services to implement their financial plan and reflect their values. These include investments designed for growth, income and capital preservation including the firm’s Investing with Impact and Catholic Values portfolios. We also utilize insurance, annuities, estate planning tools, charitable giving and other specialized products appropriate for each client.

    8Investors should consider many factors before deciding which 529 plan is appropriate. Some of these factors include: the Plan’s investment options and the historical investment performance of these options, the Plan’s flexibility and features, the reputation and expertise of the Plan’s investment manager, Plan contribution limits and the federal and state tax benefits associated with an investment in the Plan. Some states, for example, offer favorable tax treatment and other benefits to their residents only if they invest in the state’s own Qualified Tuition Program. Investors should determine their home state’s tax treatment of 529 plans when considering whether to choose an in-state or out-of-state plan. Investors should consult with their tax or legal advisor before investing in any 529 Plan or contact their state tax division for more information. Morgan Stanley Smith Barney LLC does not provide tax and/or legal advice. Investors should review a Program Disclosure Statement, which contains more information on investment options, risk factors, fees and expenses and possible tax consequences.
