All of your life-your True Wealth. Not just your money.
How can we help you Excel in Finances and Life?
We work in trust and as fiduciaries. That means what is in your best interest through transparency, simplicity, and clarity to empower and elevate you in money but also career and life. That means supporting your true needs and wants – not just your finances.
Our team has decades of experience in maneuvering the journey of a lifetime
seasons of change
growth of families
economic and social changes
Wealth is more than money. Wealth allows you to fully experience life’s opportunities and relationships and to give to what matters most to you. Money is just the “tool” that helps to elevate and support you to that pinnacle. We get it.
Yet we also know that today’s economic reality and tomorrow’s taxes and uncertainty need mitigation. We get that too!
We also get you.
As the lead, I am an entrepreneur, owner of businesses, on the inside view of family medical practices, and have family obligations. And I have learned from painfully watching my 2 successful dads-a a prominent Cardiologist and a self-made survivor of childhood disability turned multi-business owner – do everything right yet still fall short and lose legacies from lack of a unified plan. I have also lived through curveballs in caring for a special abled son that took me down a right turn that looked very different to experience challenging tradition, preservation, and reclaiming wealth.
My experience has only multiplied my original passion to help you navigate money but most importantly to THRIVE.
Today my team and I are privileged to bring best-in-class options as well as lesser-known strategies to our hard-working, expert clients who want more prosperity and good around us. We love to explore what women and couples truly need to build their wealth and Legacy. To help your businesses and practices to grow profits and efficiencies while bringing the confidence to navigate and thrive beyond the perils that can strike.
We stand for true wealth – experiencing well-being, freedom, confidence, power, and dignity. Where we all enjoy, contribute, and are celebrated with a seat at the table.
After assisting over 500 clients from the boardroom to the living room just like you, I cannot wait to see where we can help you excel.
We are glad you are here… Let’s partner to help you take control of your future.
We offer stand-alone financial planning where we work with you to provide solutions to specific areas without requiring an investment relationship. This allows us to work with people who may not have large investible assets, liquid assets, may not be ready to commit assets or may not want to leave their current financial relationship-yet recognize the value of unified planning or have immediate an need.

As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I believe it’s important to invest my time to understand what you’re working toward before you invest your money. It’s also important to understand the level of risk you’re comfortable accepting when investing so we can balance it with the steps necessary to reach your long-term goals.
Whether you’re planning for retirement, saving for college for children or grandchildren, or just trying to protect the financial future of the ones you care for the most, we can work together to develop specific strategies to help you achieve your goals. We can also monitor your progress to help make sure you stay on track or determine if any adjustments need to be made. All of this leads to a relationship and partnership focused on your success and becomes second to none in your financial world!
I graduated from Shepherd University with a bachelor’s degree in business administration with a concentration in small business entrepreneurship and this has fueled much of my career, as I have been in the financial industry supporting business owners and their families’ needs since 2012.
The greatest token of your appreciation is referring me to someone you care about. It would be my honor to be their financial partner as well!
