Taking care of your family and other people in your life

I joined Merrill Lynch Wealth Management as a Financial Advisor in 2002 because I enjoy working with successful people who are trying to achieve peace and harmony in their financial lives. I do this for their own sake as well as for the family and friends that depend on them.
I have earned the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certification awarded by the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc as well as their Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor designation because I believe the most well intentioned professionals care about staying educated and informed about all things related to their client’s financial life.
I work directly with successful individuals who believe in the value of high-quality service, integrity, and dedication in their Financial Advisor. They care about their goals and are curious about ways to improve their investments. They also believe in a goal-oriented wealth planning approach, where needs are first identified, and customized strategies are offered that best meet their needs.
Prior to becoming a Wealth Management Advisor, I worked as a management consultant at Booz Allen & Hamilton advising financial institutions, a corporate strategist at Morgan Stanley Asset Management, and a Vice President of Global Corporate Strategy at Merrill Lynch Investment Managers. All of my experiences gave me a unique base of knowledge not often found in this industry. So in 2002, I decided to switch my focus and apply my skills to real people who need real help.
Happily, I obtained a B.S. cum laude in Finance from New York University's Stern School of Business in 1992 not realizing one day how valuable it would be in my chosen profession, and an M.B.A. from Columbia University in 1997. I also completed the executive course "Pensions and Investment Management" in 2000 at the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School. I have a passion for travel. My goal which I have succeeded in so far, is to travel to more countries than my age (50+ countries so far), and I am conversant (in varying degrees of fluency) in six languages: English, Chinese (Hokkien dialect similar to Taiwanese), Spanish, Italian, Malay, and Thai. I play Badminton competitively (Division C level) as well as enjoy hiking, biking, pilates and barre, and this helps keep me physically and mentally at my best.

*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. Merrill Lynch Wealth Management 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.
