With over 17 years in the financial services industry, I am passionate about helping clients make smart, well-informed decisions that make a meaningful and lasting impact in their lives and investments - providing them with a framework for greater financial independence. Since starting my business in 1999, I've guided clients through bear markets, the dot-com bubble, and the 'great recession' -the unprecedented global financial and housing crisis of 2008, gleaning experience and insights I believe only the market "trenches" can give.
