securities industry as an institutional broker, focusing on structured financial

On the personal side, I have been married for over 30 years and have four grown
children, the youngest being 19. I have found the life experience garnered raising

futures. I love spending time at the beach; whether it is on the water or in it, I am
at home. Lastly, as an active member of the local Rotary Club, I firmly believe in
serving the communities I live and work in.
I believe in helping people. Organizing and coordinating your finances to help you
better achieve your long-term goals is something I feel strongly about. I would like
to help to provide the answers to your questions so you can make informed,
financially sound decisions. Please feel free to contact me to discuss your
situation and options.
