I work with my clients in crafting a roadmap that helps them create, grow, protect and distribute their wealth in a tax-advantaged manner so they can achieve their financial goals. As a fiduciary, I provide my clients with unconflicted advice and strategies that are in their best interests. And as their lives change, my responsibility is to look at their situations, goals, and futures and help them take the necessary steps so they and their families have a greater sense of security and peace of mind. I grew up in Hawaii in a blue-collar family, and like most people, they lacked financial literacy. My purpose and passion are to help my clients avoid some of the common mistakes that my parents made in planning.
