Before I can speak intelligently about the services that might be appropriate for you and your family, I need to get to know you. And, before you can feel comfortable sharing your goals and dreams, you need to get to know me.

While completing my Bachelor's Degree from The Ohio State University back in 2004 I started working with Northwestern Mutual as an intern.  Since graduating I pursued this career full-time and have been working with individuals, families, and businesses ever since to help them achieve their specific financial goals and aspirations.  I am a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional.
