I've been in the financial industry since 1995 because my passion in life is to help my clients succeed. It always gives me great joy to see them reach the financial goals they've worked so hard to achieve. In my spare time, I love staying fit, hiking, biking and doing landscape projects in my yard. I'm also a proud Returned Peace Corps Volunteer.
