It is Dustin’s belief that finance is one of the most important aspects of people’s lives. He provides a holistic approach, focusing first on you and your family’s well-being. He then seeks to learn about your financial goals and dreams before ever proposing a plan. His approach is process-oriented and seeks to provide you with absolute clarity when it comes to your personal financial situation. He will assess investment, insurance, retirement, education & legacy planning needs.

When it comes to specific investments, Dustin uses ETF’s, mutual funds, individual stocks, REITs, alternative investments, annuities & 529 college savings accounts in the planning process with his clients.
