I joined Merrill Lynch Wealth Management in 2017 with about a decade of financial services experience. Today I take great satisfaction in my ability to help clients across the country to establish a defined path to simplify their complex financial lives.

I am passionate about understanding each client’s unique story. I welcome the opportunity to solve problems efficiently and provide multiple generations of families with strategic advice and guidance. I often consult on major financial decisions as clients go through transitions in life. This can include matters such as changing jobs or careers, planning for or entering retirement, getting divorced or (re)married, caring for an aging parent, or the death of a loved one. I also engage my clients in important discussions about the role Social Security and Medicare can play in retirement. A notable strength of my practice is my ability to work in conjunction with clients’ attorneys and accountants to help connect all the pieces of their financial lives.

I hold the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER, CFP® certification. As a Senior Portfolio Advisor, I can help clients pursue their objectives by managing custom investment strategies on a discretionary basis. Additionally, I earned the Certified Divorced Financial Analyst, CDFA® certification and use my knowledge to help inspire and empower women to take control of their financial lives after divorce or the death of a spouse. 

Originally from Riga, Latvia, I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree from Moscow State Institute of Electronics and Technology. I also graduated from a Certificate Program in Financial Planning from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. I currently live in Dallas, where I enjoy running, cycling, and traveling. With a passion for art, I enjoy supporting and visiting museums around the world. Among some of my favorites are the Met and the Museum of Modern Art in New York City,  Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, the Dallas Museum of Art and Musée d'Orsay in Paris. I am also devoted to supporting causes dedicated to those who cannot help themselves, including children, animals, the elderly, and the environment.

*A Senior Portfolio Advisor can help clients pursue their objectives by managing on a discretionary basis custom investment strategies, selecting from a wide range of Merrill Lynch Wealth Management model portfolios and third-party investment strategies.

    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


    The first-hand knowledge I’ve gained throughout my career has heightened my ability to connect with people, understand their priorities, and problem-solve on their behalf. Whether your objectives are securing your lifestyle in retirement, caring for aging parents, or arranging for the tax-efficient transfer of wealth to the people and causes you care about, I combine actionable planning and objective advice to help you turn your ambitions into a reality.

    Supported by a team of experienced specialists throughout Merrill and the banking convenience of Bank of America, I strive to:

    - Bring order to your financial life by freeing you of some of the time-consuming details of wealth management
    - Understand your specific needs and develop customized strategies tailored to your unique situation
    - Help your children and grandchildren make informed decisions about their future when they begin to have financial needs of their own


    To me, thoughtful decision making begins by asking a lot of questions and talking about issues you may not have considered before. While the answers can be eye opening at times, I believe that a sound and productive relationship begins with listening to you and discussing what you determine is most important.

    I help take things off your plate so you can focus on what’s most important to you—family, hobbies, job, or whatever else motivates you. My systematic and disciplined goals-based process is evolutionary and considers the ongoing changes in your life, your resources, and the financial decisions you need to reflect upon.


    Investment Approach

    Your unique goals should be at the center of all your financial decisions and form the foundation of your financial strategy. My approach begins by reviewing your assets and liabilities, your comfort level with risk, liquidity needs, time horizon, and where you see yourself and your family in 5, 10 or 20 years. Understanding your specific objectives enables me to develop a targeted, customized investment approach to help you reach those goals.

    The advice I offer is crafted to help you focus on long-term results, not short-term market swings. Once your plan is implemented, I regularly review your investments and your progress towards your goals. I will recommend adjustments to your portfolio as the markets and economic environments dictate to help make sure your investments stay aligned with your goals for your lifetime and future generations.

    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.
