The Importance of Independence


I am committed to providing clients with objective guidance and appropriate solutions, and placing their best interests above my own at all times.  

I am bound by the CFP®   Board's Code of Ethics and Standards of Conduct. Furthermore, despite the redundancy, when we agree to work together, I will provid you with a signed Fiduciary Oath.

I am self-employed, which means I work for my clients. My goal is to help you make the right decisions for your unique circumstances.

By partnering with the independent broker/dealer, LPL Financial, I have access to independent research, state-of-the art technology, innovative investment tools, and exceptional support. With that support behind my practice, I can devote my full attention to your needs and objectives.

I invite you to explore the LPL website to learn more about how LPL supports and supervises me.

In my practice, there are no proprietary products, sales goals, or incentives.

We can work together in a variety of ways. Through LPL Financial, I offer hourly consulting, flat-fee financial planning, and investment management (commission-based brokerage, and fee-based advisory).
