Your Friend in Finance

What truly lights me up?

When I was just finishing high school, I wanted a career where I could “make a difference.” Now, I’m not going to lie, financial planning was not my first choice. But now, over 25 years later, I realize it is the best choice. I can’t think of a better or bigger way to make a difference in someone’s life than to ensure they are financially healthy.

When your money is in turmoil and you don’t know how you’re going to send the kids to school, or pay off the mortgage, or the big question, “How will I retire?” it causes an immense amount of stress. My job is to help you answer those questions and together create a road map of how you are going to get there.

So what is a financial planner? I think the easiest way to explain it is: I am your money coach. I coach you and encourage you to reach your financial goals. Together we develop a strategy, and I monitor that strategy to make sure you stay on track.

Who needs a financial planner? Everyone! Do you need to have a lot of money? Absolutely not. What you do need to have is a willingness to meet your financial goals.

I worry about your money for you so you don’t have to.

It is deeply satisfying to watch people take their family on vacation, buy a retirement property, golf, fish, camp, craft, or whatever it is that lights them up, to their hearts desire knowing they have someone looking out for them.

My passion lies with helping women exceed their financial goals. It’s fascinating to watch a woman develop confidence around money, and to know that they are in control of their financial future. My goal is to make sure every woman is empowered by their money.
