About Me

If you are reading this, you are likely considering working with a new financial advisor (potentially for the first time!), so congratulations! 🎉 It can be an overwhelming process, though, navigating the financial world...

And just like shouldn't go to a foot doctor if you need help with your heart, you shouldn't start working with just any financial advisor, you should aim to work with one that is experienced in helping folks with a situation similar to yours.

📖 So here is a little about me to help you better gauge if I might be a good fit for you:

📈 I primarily work with folks in their accumulation years - often business owners or those who have/had equity compensation - to use money as a tool to help achieve their financial goals while staying true to their values and what matters most.

🌎 Our work is comprehensive; we dive deep into all areas of our clients' financial lives to evaluate their current situation versus where they’d like to be and co-develop an actionable roadmap to help get there, adjusting as life and goals inevitably change.

🤝 Folks often choose to partner with us because they either lack the time, desire, and/or expertise to effectively manage their finances themselves. They want a partner in the process.

💰 We place an emphasis on tax planning, because "Nothing is certain except death and taxes".

📚 Continuing education is key; I hold the CFA® designation and CFP® certification, and received a certificate in Financial Life Planning from Golden Gate University.

⏳ In my free time, I enjoy reading, playing and watching sports, and spending time with family, friends, and my two cats.

What to expect in the first meeting

The primary purpose of our first meeting is really for us to learn more about your unique situation and what's on your mind. To do that, we will ask you a series of questions. Don't worry it's not some test that you need to set aside hours to study or prepare for, but you might find it helpful to glance over some of your financials beforehand. At the end of the meeting, there will be no commitment asked for, instead we can simply mutually decide if we should have a second meeting to dive into more specifics about your situation and how we might be able to help. If that sounds like something that would be helpful for you, click the 'Book Intro Call' button above to schedule a free 30-45 minute zoom meeting.
