What does financial success look like to you?
To me, financial success is being able to maintain or increase our current standard of living throughout each phase of life. Also, being able to provide a legacy to our children and important charitable organizations is important.
What is your favorite part about your role?
Seeing our clients smile by providing them with lasting and meaningful impacts. I enjoy helping them meet their most important goals and wishes.
If you could meet anyone, who would it be?
George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Kobe Bryant
