Each of us has a different vision of what it means to be financially secure, and your vision is likely to change throughout your lifetime – when you begin your career, start a family, educate your children and enter retirement.  I can help you create a personalized financial plan that has a firm foundation in your beliefs and addresses your hopes for the future.

But achieving financial security takes more than creating a comprehensive plan; you also have to take action on your plan, and evaluate and adjust it over time.  Together, we’ll create a timeline to help protect you and your family now, and execute the steps necessary to respond to whatever life brings.

After 20 years working in the field of philanthropy as a CEO and Director of Development, I became an advisor with Northwestern Mutual. Philanthropy is about meeting the needs of others, and this new role allows me to continue to serve that need in a new way. I run a comprehensive financial planning practice that focuses on the offensive and defensive sides of financial security. My mission is to create enduring relationships with my clients by providing innovative solutions and professional direction to help clients accomplish their financial objectives.
