Financial Advisor

Financial Independence affords security, flexibility, and opportunity---the security that comes with taking care of your family financially; the flexibility to choose the work & service for which you are passionate; the opportunity to help your community. Independence is the end that wealth serves.  Our mission is to help those people with whom we have a working relationship to define, plan for, and achieve their financial independence.

Since 1999, I have worked with individuals, private businesses, their owners, and their key people in the areas of retirement planning, distribution planning, business succession planning, capital allocation & investment management, risk management, and employee benefits.
