Why I decided to become a financial advisor: Today's world of investing is complex and takes time to do research to make appropriate decisions in a timely manner. All to often families fall prey to financial predators that attempt to sell high cost products and lock up their hard earned money. Even though the world of investing is changing many financial companies apply unrealistic goals. Employees of these financial firms are put under career and goal stress to achieve them despite often knowing those products are of poor choice. I became a financial advisor to provide the greatest quality of products and service i know this industry can provide and that you deserve. Caring means putting our clients first among all else which is why I have taken the oath of a fiduciary advisor. I began my career at Meridian Asset Management and have held many bank management positions over the years. I have extensive experience working with upper level managers and their families. I hold a Bachelors degree in Accounting from PennState, a masters degree, and am a Certified Financial Planner. I take part in many volunteer functions such as scouting, coaching, and community projects.

Tower Bridge Advisors was founded in 2001 with a mission to provide high quality investment advice alongside outstanding client service. We manage equity and fixed income portfolios comprised of individual stocks and bonds. Our clients choose us because of our commitment to investment research, our experience in managing client portfolios and our laser like focus on our clients' needs. Our nine investment professionals each have, on average, more than 25 years' experience researching investment opportunities, and managing portfolios through up as well as down markets. Our investment process starts with a clear understanding of each client?s unique financial situation, and takes into account their tax status and tolerance for risk. Only by understanding these factors can we develop an appropriate investment solution. Our rigorous investment process results in a customized asset allocation for each client. Each client's portfolio is constructed of 35-40 stocks which represent the best ideas of our investment team, and an appropriate allocation to bonds to achieve the client's requirement for income and stability. From a client service standpoint, we make ourselves available for phone calls and in person meetings as frequently as desired. Our clients appreciate talking directly to the person who manages their account, not a marketing person or an intermediary. Our team of experienced administrators also reach out to our clients to ensure proper management of all administrative details of their accounts.

About Tower Bridge Advisors

Tower Bridge Advisors manages over $1.3 Billion for individuals and families. We have one focus, and that is to customize portfolios for the benefit of our clients.

My passion for finance comes from a family heritage of teaching and caring for others. Finance is a complex area of life, yet in most states, it is not required in schools.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, my husband Jim and my two sons, Christian and Dylan. We love visiting places as a family, and our kids' energy ensures we stay active.

About Janney Montgomery Scott LLC

How I Work With Clients Long-term focus and discipline start with a sound investment strategy. The first meeting is a complimentary consultation. I like to get acquainted with you and your family to discuss your current financial condition and determine your invetment objectives. Once we begin a business relationship, we proceed to gather all of your financial data, which includes current investments, income, assets, insurances and any debts or loans. Upon determining your goals and objectives, we then analyze the information and agree upon a financial plan. Once an investment plan is agreed upon, our team of specialists will work with your own independent tax and legal advisors. Our goal is to add value through a comprehensive planning approach. Regular portfolio reviews will then be scheduled to monitor your investments and rebalance as necessary. We will also discuss any life changes that may have occurred and the opportunities and challenges that they may present. This is what all present and future clients can expect. I welcome the opportunity to work with you as your investment partner.

After graduating from Penn State University with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering, I was lucky enough to meet with an advisor who helped me to start saving and investing. Unfortunately, I soon realized that the financial services industry is full of advisors working for themselves, instead of their clients. Years of underperforming investments, along with a general lack of concern for my goals from several advisors, led me to manage my own investments. And later, while working for Lucent Technologies during the Dot-com years, I had the opportunity to attend Lehigh University and graduate with an MBA in Finance. MBA fresh in-hand, I decided to pursue a career in finance. I worked in NYC for Barclays Capital where I soon learned that I preferred working with individuals as opposed to large institutions. I co-founded Schuylkill Financial in order to help everyday people plan for their future. Our business is centered around developing and setting realistic goals with our clients. To do that we need to be passionate about our clients and responsive to their needs as we help them clarify their financial picture. When I am not in the office, I love spending time with my wife and children, doing just about anything outdoors. Hiking and mountain biking are at the top of my list and I can usually be identified as the guy toting one of my 2 little ones on my back and dog by my side on many of Downingtown's trails.
