Taking care of your family and other people in your life

As your wealth management advisor, I’m dedicated to understanding your current financial picture as well as your goals and priorities. I have found that clients’ top concerns include making their money last in retirement when they are no longer earning, financing the best possible education for their children, and safeguarding some funds for emergencies. Whatever your goals, I can draw on Merrill investment strategies to help you create a disciplined wealth management approach. As your life circumstances and the markets change, I can help you review your progress and adjust your strategies as needed.
My commitment to building long-term relationships with clients includes ongoing coaching and financial education. By exploring different wealth management scenarios, and helping you interpret the constant stream of information about world events and their potential impact on markets, I can help you take the emotion out of making important financial decisions.
I draw on my over 23 years of wealth management experience, and the deep resources of Merrill Lynch Wealth Management, to help clients create customized financial strategies tailored to their individual goals. As a lifelong learner, I stay current on industry trends and wealth management strategies through memberships in the Investments & Wealth Institute™.
I am a qualified Portfolio Manager who, in addition to providing traditional advice and guidance, can help clients pursue their objectives by building and managing my own personalized or defined strategies, which may incorporate individual stocks and bonds, Merrill Lynch Wealth Management model portfolios, and third-party investment strategies. When servicing clients through the firms’ Investment Advisory Program, as a Portfolio Manager I may manage my strategies on a discretionary basis.
In addition, I am a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certificant, a designation awarded by the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc. I also hold the Certified Investment Management Analyst designation from the Investments & Wealth Institute™.
Prior to joining Merrill in 1998, I spent over six years in hotel and restaurant management and accounting with a global luxury hotel franchise. In that career, I learned the value of delivering exceptional client service. I graduated with honors from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree at the Isenberg School of Management. I am an avid reader who also enjoys fitness training and spending time with my family.
