The Pursuit of Financial Clarity and Confidence

 

Over the past 30 years, I have served a number of individuals, women, and business owners ranging in age, financial situation, and goals. While each and every client has their own unique needs and dreams, many face one, universal concern: confidently making financial decisions.

I am committed to taking the mystery and confusion out of investing and retirement planning strategies so my clients can focus on what they enjoy most in life. I believe that by offering ongoing education, customized strategies, and objective guidance, clients can feel more confident in their financial future.

Located in San Diego, California, I largely serve clients in La Jolla, Del Mar, Rancho Bernardo, Poway, and Rancho Santa Fe.
