My reason for becoming an independent Financial Advisor is deeply personal. I have a passion to be of service to those who need our help and offer them the highest level of care and comprehensive services. At Homestead Wealth Management, we refuse to treat people like numbers; kindness and respect are the foundation of all our client relationships.
Over the years I repeatedly saw many friends and family struggling to find the help they needed to map out their financial future. I am confident that with my understanding of personal finance, coupled with my training as a financial professional, I can help people better prepare for the future. After years in the business, I have developed a reputation for educating individuals in an easy-to-understand manner so they can grasp personal finance and use those concepts to pursue their financial objectives. I feel a commitment to our community and take a holistic approach to serving clients.
I currently hold the Chartered Financial Consultant® (ChFC®) designation, which was obtained and taught by The American College of Financial Services. Also, I hold the Certified Investment Management Analyst® (or CIMA®) designation, administered by Investment Management Consultants Association®, and taught by Yale School of Management.
As a comprehensive Financial Advisor, I can help in the following areas:
- General principles of financial strategies (for example, personal financial statements, net worth statements)
- Insurance planning and risk management
- Investment planning
- Income tax planning strategies
- Retirement planning
- Estate planning strategies

Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal.
In today's busy world, clients are looking for different ways to engage with financial professionals. Some clients would like help with investment management, while others are focused on financial planning questions. When should I file for social security benefits, manage my 401k, what benefits package should I choose. These are a few of the questions that individuals have. We can simplify what seems complex by offering clients options on how they work with us at Homestead Wealth Management.
As an independent boutique wealth management firm, we offer a personalized experience for those looking to develop a trusted relationship. Our clients will never feel as if they are small fish in a big pond.

Why should I choose you as my financial advisor?
An advisor with sixteen years of experience, advanced Financial Planning and Investment Management credentials, and a Military background has given me a unique perspective on economics, financial matters, and life. Much of my client's hesitancy around financial planning is rooted in fear or lack of understanding. I can help sift through these hurdles and provide clarity. Also, as a native New Yorker, I will give it to you straight.
