Why I Became a Financial Advisor

After receiving my master’s degree in accounting, I began my career at a Big Four Accounting Firm. While I enjoyed working with audit teams and accounting clients, I did not feel like I was directly affecting lives in a positive way. Important mentors in my life talked with me about making a career change, and I jumped at the chance to take on a role where I would be empowered to help individuals and small businesses. Working directly with clients to see their financial goals come to fruition has been extremely rewarding. I am excited to continue these relationships through the many milestones they will celebrate on their financial journeys.


It is so important to develop a partnership with clients, supporting and guiding them in how they can truly take control of their financial lives.


Trust is the foundation of confidence and is best achieved through a deep understanding of my clients, listening carefully to their financial goals.


My greatest goal is that, through our relationship, clients truly have a clear path in achieving their financial security.
