Before I can speak intelligently about the services that might be appropriate for you and your family, I need to get to know you. And, before you can feel comfortable sharing your goals and dreams, you need to get to know me.

Let's start with some of my background.  I am originally from Birmingham, Michigan.  I graduated from Xavier University, Cincinnati Ohio with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Finance.  I began  my Northwestern Mutual career in 1982.

I attained the Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU®), the Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC®) and the Chartered Advisor for Senior Living (CASL®) designations from The American College.  I am also a Financial Advisor with Northwestern Mutual.  In my insurance practice, I specialize in Business Planning Analysis, Personal Planning Analysis, Retirement Solutions, Asset and Income Protection and Long Term Care Insurance.
