Lance focuses on understanding your goals, questions and concerns to develop the plan needed to help you pursue the financial lifestyle that is the most meaningful to you and your family. This level of care continues throughout the relationship as Lance works closely with you to adapt your plan to the inevitable changes that occur in life.
Lance understands the desire you have to work with an advisor that helps simplify your financial life. This includes helping you identify and prioritize your essential (e.g., estate planning services, investments, tax minimization, wealth transfer or retirement income) and aspirational (e.g., a second home, travel or philanthropy) goals. Custom strategies are then developed in alignment with your personal circumstances and your own unique feelings and attitudes. Finally, the level of care required to build and maintain the trust you desire remains at the forefront of the relationship with you.
Lance has been a part of the financial services industry since 1991 and joined Merrill Lynch Wealth Management in 2003. He has a bachelor's degree in Business with an emphasis in Finance from Washington State University. Lance is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional and a qualified Portfolio Manager who, in addition to providing traditional advice and guidance, can help you make the most of what you have by building and managing uniquely personalized or defined strategies, which may incorporate individual stocks and bonds, Merrill Lynch Wealth Management model portfolios, and third-party investment strategies.
Lance lives in Olympia with his wife, Tami, and their two kids. Lance and his family enjoy mountain biking, backpacking and racing cars at various PNW race tracks.
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.
