Profile


I focus on delivering a comprehensive approach to managing wealth that begins with listening to a client’s needs and helping to ensure every strategy is grounded in understanding what each client wants to achieve. I fine-tuned my disciplined approach through a 25 year career in Technology and Management Consulting, primarily focusing on Data Architecture for Financial Services firms such as JPMorgan. In my technology career, I listened to my client’s needs to define technical strategies to help them pursue their business goals.

This broad experience provides me the perspective to hold seminars on a variety of topics including Impact Investing, Women and Financial Wellness, The Journey of Caregiving, Teaching Your Kids about Finances, and Divorce.

I hold the Certified Private Wealth Advisor® designation, which helps me manage sophisticated estate, tax, and investment issues for affluent clients. In addition, I hold the Certified Divorce Financial Analyst® designation, which I use to help guide clients through financial challenges before, during and after the divorce process.

I welcome the opportunity to demonstrate why I believe I can make a significant difference in your life. Through impact investing, I can help you align your investments with the causes and issues most important to you, while helping you to stay on track to pursue your financial goals.



Impact investing and/or Environmental Social Governance (ESG) investing has certain risks based on the fact that ESG criteria excludes securities of certain issuers for nonfinancial reasons and therefore, investors may forgo some market opportunities and the universe of investments available will be smaller.

Neither Merrill Lynch nor its Financial Advisors provide tax, accounting or legal advice. Clients should review any planned financial transactions or arrangements that may have tax, accounting or legal implications with their personal professional advisors.


I follow the deep-seated Merrill tradition of participating in the communities we serve. This drives my interest in spending time volunteering with organizations in our community.

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

My mission, first and foremost, is to understand your goals and priorities. To take the time to ask hard, smart questions and listen carefully, then understand in great detail, exactly where your wealth stands today and where you'd like it to be tomorrow. I then help you design, implement and periodically monitor a customized wealth management strategy that helps you and your family pursue personal financial goals while managing investment risk. My approach is about designing strategies to help turn goals into reality.

Philosophy

I believe it is important that you take positive steps toward your financial future, and that means getting more than just investment advice.  I take the time to get to understand who you are, what you hope to achieve and what keeps you up at night. Using an understanding of your life and priorities as a foundation, I can work with you to build a goals-based financial strategy.

Approach

My approach to investing is grounded in an understanding of you. It all begins with a conversation. I take the time to get to know you-your kids' names, how hard you worked to get where you are and how you define success. I'll work together with you to understand your investment personality, prioritize your goals and build a financial strategy that reflects your needs. I believe investors can benefit from our advice, access to the investment insights offered by Merrill, as well as banking, trust and fiduciary services from Bank of America. When it comes to your success, there's only one financial strategy that really matters - yours.

Understanding your goals and priorities

Your life and goals change. We have tools to help you keep track of these changes so they can be reflected in your financial strategy.

Social Impact Investing

We support clients who believe in socially conscious, impact investing-people who feel strongly that their investments should be consistent with their beliefs. We take the time to meet with you, listen to your preferences and not only discuss companies and institutions which may be reflective of your beliefs, but we can also help you eliminate firms currently in your portfolio whose practices may run counter to your position on "hot-button" issues that are meaningful to you. We can help you develop an impact investing strategy that is focused on helping you pursue your financial goals.

Focus On Individuals and Families

I work primarily with high-net-worth individuals and families. I’ll begin by getting to know you as we explore the following seven priorities together:

  • Health: Managing healthcare expenses, now and in the future
  • Home: Upsizing, downsizing, remodeling or buying a vacation home
  • Family: Taking care of your family and other people in your life
  • Leisure: Spending your free time in meaningful ways
  • Giving: Volunteering, mentoring others and giving to charities
  • Work: Working in retirement, selling or starting a business
  • Finance: Bringing it all together and defining your financial goals
I work closely with other trusted professionals to help clients pursue their goals, drawing on the investment insights of Merrill and access to the banking convenience of Bank of America as we do so.

Your Financial Strategy

We offer you access to the investing insights of Merrill, as well as banking, trust and fiduciary services from Bank of America to help you pursue your goals. We will work to help you stay on track, regardless of what the markets are doing.

    *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.

    Let’s Have a Conversation

    I believe it’s important that you seek the advice and guidance of an experienced Merrill Lynch Wealth Management Advisor who can thoughtfully analyze your situation, identify strategies that address your needs, and clearly communicate them to you. We want to work with you to develop your wealth management strategy for the future.

    Why Merrill Lynch?
