My Story and Services

My Story

I believe smart planning starts with asking the right questions, as well as understanding the financial needs and goals of my clients.  Only then can I provide a cohesive wealth management plan for the future.  It’s not my practice, for example, to discuss education funding without considering its impact on retirement planning.  Nor does it make sense to talk about an investment plan without first discovering what the investments need to pay for, i.e., a second home, a business start up, or a child’s first down payment.  You don’t separate your finances from your life; as your Financial Advisor, I won’t either.

Retirement planning is a main a focus of my business.  I assist in creating comprehensive financial strategies for corporate retirement plans, retired workers and individuals.  By creating visibility and accountability in clients’ financial profiles, I help clients meet their goals while managing risk.

Community Involvement

Community Involvement

I am passionate about giving back to the community.  I am a past President of the Ada Christian School Education Foundation, and the current President of the Wedgewood Christian Services Foundation.  I also serve as a chair on a committee with inForum – a women’s executive networking organization.

I am also passionate about exercise – I just love it.  I started running a few years ago and have completed several half marathons and the Fifth Third 25K race several times.  Until an injury sidelined me, my goal was to complete a full marathon.  

My Family

My Family

I have been married for eighteen years to my husband, John. We have four wonderful children.  Our oldest daughter recently moved to Southern California to start her career in the real estate industry and our three younger children are currently students at Grand Rapids Christian High School and Ada Christian School.  The children keep us very busy with all of their school, church and sports activities.
