Our mission is to have a positive and inspiring effect upon those we are blessed to serve. As an independent, fee-based, holistic financial planning enterprise, we apply servant leadership with a deep understanding of our private clientele to achieve their dreams. Growing up in WV, just outside of Pittsburgh, PA, I learned quite a bit about the value of strong relationships. Playing team sports through college, and coaching for close to 15 years has also taught me a great deal about working with others. There is no higher compliment than when my current clients help me grow my business by introducing me to their colleagues, family, and friends. I thoroughly enjoy providing the highest quality service and individualized, risk managed, advice to my private client group. The fact that I control the growth of my practice (by working with a select group of clients that I mesh well with in the areas of values, traditions, family focus, and life philosophy) will enable me to never sacrifice my level of service, or contact, with my clients! Please reach out to us and discover how a risk managed approach to financial planning can provide you peace of mind. We look forward to meeting with you!
