Areas of Expertise

Here are my areas of expertise, which I will use to provide you with customized recommendations that will help you plan for your financial future.

  • Estate Planning
    You work your whole life to build your estate. You should have control over what happens to it upon your death. Building a lasting legacy takes more than simply accumulating a large portfolio. You need a solution that remains flexible enough to allow you to maintain maximum control of your assets and enjoy them during your lifetime while you prepare for the efficient transfer of those assets after you die.
  • Financial Planning
    Long-term financial security doesn't happen by chance. Many things in life can have an impact - positive or negative - on your financial well-being. I'm here to help you take control of your future. Together we'll identify your most important goals and dreams, and build and implement a financial plan to help you achieve them. And because life is unpredictable, we'll monitor your progress on a regular basis to ensure your plan evolves as your needs and the situation around you changes.
  • Retirement Planning
    Perhaps one of the greatest financial challenges you will face in your lifetime is preparing adequately for your retirement. I will help you create a plan that will assess your current financial situation, determine the retirement lifestyle for your future, review the many options available, and put solutions in place to help ensure you achieve the retirement of your dreams.
  • Fee-Based Financial Planning
    As a fee-based advisor, I am compensated for the time and expertise put into designing and creating your personal financial plan. Under this fee structure, I have a responsibility to ensure your interests and goals are always put first.
  • Business Succession Planning
    What will happen to your business when you retire, or if you become permanently disabled or die? What's the value of your business, and how much is each owner's share worth? As a business owner, you know how many years you have invested in your business. Wanting it to continue is natural. Because I specialize in business succession planning, I can help you answer these and other questions. Together we can develop a plan to help ensure a smooth transfer of your business.
  • Special Needs Planning
    Planning for a dependent with special needs can be complicated. It is recommended that you work with a team of experts - including an attorney, a financial professional and a social service professional. As a key member to the special needs team, I provide solutions for families with special needs.
  • Employee and Executive Benefits Planning
    Employee benefits are an important part of the growth of your business. Benefits such as health insurance, pension plans, group life and disability income plans make up the compensation package that helps ensure continued employee satisfaction and well-being within your company. Designing an employee benefit approach can be a complicated, technical and time-consuming matter. Working with a specialist who offers access to comprehensive employee benefit services through local and independently owned companies, provides a number of advantages, including experienced professionals with access to top providers and a wealth of benefit choices tailored to meet your business' ever changing needs.
