Certified Public Accountant
Certified Financial Planner®
“When I was growing up, my parents owned a retail flower store. I saw first-hand, every day, the important decisions they made in their business and the impact of those decisions on our family. That’s why I’ve built the career I have: I draw on three distinct sets of skills to provide our clients the integrated perspective they need to balance their resources and their dreams.”
