Taking care of your family and other people in your life

My life experiences are reflected in my deep devotion to helping clients achieve what’s most meaningful to them – financially and personally.
As an eight-year-old girl in Central Vietnam, I escaped with my mother and survived for a month on a boat in the China Sea, without food or water. Our “rescuers” placed us in a Chinese concentration camp. There, we lived for two years. In spite of violence and poor treatment, I sustained myself by reading. When I was ten years old, we came to America, where I met my father for the first time. Years earlier, he left Vietnam to start a business in California and wait for our arrival. As an immigrant fourth grader, I focused on reading books and making friends. To learn American songs, I sang in a choir. Eventually, I graduated high school, college, and earned my MBA, CFP® certification, and CRPC® designation.
What do I believe?
• Exploring clients’ motivations and aspirations is the most important responsibility I have.
• Superior wealth management is about serving people and purposes, not just portfolios.
• Active listening is essential to providing real-world advice and guidance.
What makes me proud?
• Helping people who are driven to do good things.
• Developing holistic approach to wealth management, retirement planning, trust and estate services, insurance considerations, and liability management.
• Knowing in my heart that this is the land of opportunities – and helping others to live the American Dream.

*Peace of mind is an aspirational state of mind that clients hope to achieve. There are no guaranteed results following completion of the Goals-Based Wealth Management process because markets can fluctuate and investments can lose value. Advisors work with clients to help them understand how the goals based wealth management process can help to address their concerns, financial situation and priorities.
Helping you reach your goals starts with getting to know you personally. Through understanding what matters most to you, I can help you create a financial strategy that reflects your personality. Only then can I offer an approach that is built around your life priorities and the ongoing advice you need to help you manage fluctuations in the market and changes in your life. Let’s work together to help you achieve your goals.
