First Vice President - Investment Officer, Financial Advisor
I believe mindful stewardship includes preparing clients for the “certainty of uncertainty”. Despite their best efforts to stay on track with their plan, clients often face life changing decisions. Through ongoing dialog, collaboration and a deep understanding of your situation, I can provide guidance and clarity around the impact of those decisions. I understand both the technical and emotional magnitude of managing the financial security of your family.

I believe mindful stewardship includes helping you connect the emotional and practical aspects of your personalized investment strategy. It is hard to stay focused on your goals and aspirations when you are bombarded with the sensationalized 24/7 news cycle. My role is to act as an emotional circuit breaker helping you avoid the pitfall of common emotional investing behaviors that may prove far more detrimental to your long-term financial success than news headlines or single-day market moves. I encourage clients to stay focused on the things they can control and to embrace market volatility an opportunity, not a fear.
I believe that with prudent portfolio construction, the use of disciplined diversification, taking no more risk than necessary and stress testing portfolios I can help clients stay the course and maintain a long term perspective.
