After graduating from Aquinas College in 1992 with degrees in Business and Accounting I starting working for a group of financial advisors to learn the business. In 1997 my old partner started AAM to begin working toward a fee-only business model. In 2003 we were able to drop our securities licenses and become fee only on the investment and financial planning side of the business. In 2009 I dropped my insurance license and joined NAPFA as a fee-only advisor. My mission is to help clients Manage their Resources, Plan for their Goals and Maximize their financial potential.
