About Wealth Management Solutions, LLC

401k Rollover? You and I may have already met. After a decade of engaging with Fortune 500 companies and their employees to provide education and advice on their retirement plans, I have had the opportunity to speak with hundreds of clients across the country and assist them with their financial goals. Because I have been invited to review and advise on investments for many employers and their employees, there is a breadth of knowledge that many younger advisors and investment salesmen do not have. The 15 years of experience you see to the right of this paragraph --> ensures that you are working with a partner who has helped clients through some of the toughest markets and financial strains encountered in generations.

We maintain only a select number of client and family relationships, and get to know your situation inside and out. I will help you maximize your wealth by making the most of your company benefits (401(k) plan, restricted stock, stock options, deferred compensation plans), by managing investments, through income tax planning, estate and gift planning, and when income is needed: by turning your investments into a reliable income stream. You can be confident in the advice we give, as we will happily put it in writing. As a client, you will receive detailed follow up emails after our meetings so we can ensure there is no question as to what we are recommending, and why. Our meetings are never just a review of your most recent statement.

I have been a financial advisor for 15 years. Previously, I worked for a large, well known national discount brokerage firm. Throughout my career I have incorporated my passion for helping others know and understand more about investing into a career which can lead to individuals and families accomplishing their life goals. People often don't discuss money, but as their trusted advisor, I enjoy the opportunity to have candid conversations that can shed light on how the wages of their hard work can end up working for them.
