Mike helps clients by combining a strong foundation in technical market knowledge, along with a personable approach to financial planning. Mike utilizes a strategy with his clients that is personalized to each client’s own unique financial and retirement goals. A ‘one size fits all’ style rarely translates well to the real world and nor should this be the approach that the person entrusted with your financial future utilizes. Mike works diligently to learn the needs of a client and builds a credible relationship to ensure that the financial aspect of life’s journey is in the guidance of a trusted ally.

Prior to joining the financial services industry, Mike worked in the field of pharmaceutical manufacturing. Having earned a bachelor’s degree from Indiana University in Biology, he was able to apply his educational background to safely produce drug products. Helping others is a fundamental principal that Mike has always found important and he believes that working in a field that facilitates such an opportunity, whether it be helping the physical health or financial health of others, is a fulfilling path that is worth taking.
