    No matter your situation, I believe one should first lay a financial foundation which includes establishing a cash reserve in the event of an emergency and have adequate protection in the event of a critical illness, injury, or premature death. Once your adequately covered in those areas we can begin to look at investments with the goal of keeping pace or outpacing inflation based on your tolerance for risk. Also, I believe it is imperative to have an income strategy in place to replace your income when you are no longer working or collecting a paycheck. Having a financial plan can help make a difference.

    What makes me different from other financial advisors is that I work with people in different stages of their lives. Whether they are 20s just starting to accumulate assets, in the 50s looking to preserve what has been accumulated over the years, or income phase when you are no longer working; I am able to help mitigate the financial roadblocks that can get in the way of your plan.
