Where do we begin? It starts with you.

At Merrill Lynch Wealth Management, your financial advisor focuses on the things you care about most- family, goals and priorities - even as they change over the years.

Understanding Your Life

Welcome

As a Merrill Lynch Wealth Management Advisor, I focus on connecting all aspects of clients’ financial lives to help them prioritize and pursue goals that matter most to them. I work with individuals and families to understand their financial situation, risk tolerance, time horizon and liquidity needs. I help them articulate their short- and long-term goals, then work with them to establish a financial approach aligned with what they strive to achieve. I do so while combining personalized service with the investment insights of Merrill and access to the banking convenience of Bank of America.

Focus On Corporate Executives

For corporate executives, I offer guidance for diversification* of concentrated stock positions. For business owners, we can help them build company benefit plans and provide access to Bank of America for help in addressing cash flow, lending needs and other bank-related needs. For those nearing retirement, I consider inflation, health care costs and other factors to help them pursue desired lifestyles. I are available to talk with clients and explore potential opportunities with them.

*Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against loss in declining markets.

Philosophy

It’s important to plan for your financial future, which means getting more than investment advice. I believe you may find value in a one-on-one relationship with someone dedicated to knowing who you are and what you want to accomplish. Someone who knows your kids’ names, how hard you worked to get where you are, how you define a successful life and how you view investing. My commitment is centered in helping clients achieve their goals by making their needs and wants a priority. My advice and financial approach are guided by what’s important to you, and our success is defined by your satisfaction over time.

Approach

No two investment approaches are alike because no two investors are alike. I'll examine several components — your life priorities, investment personality and financial situation — and work together to help you create a customized, actionable approach with personalized advice and measurable goals. I'll help you track progress to your goals and work with you to adjust your investment approach over time, as needed.

Staying on Track

We understand that both your life and the financial markets can change over time. By checking in to discuss changes in your life and revisiting your financial approach, our goal is to help you stay on track to achieve what's most important to you.

stay on track
