    Branch Manager

    Wealth Management Specialist

Branch Manager and registered principal of the Raymond James offices in Metairie and Houma.

"After the 2000-2002 and 2008 – 2009 bear markets we sought a forward-looking process that would not rely on yesterday's thinking to weather today's volatile market conditions.

"Besides creating a plan for downside risk, we were searching for areas of strength that would add opportunities for potential growth.

"Out of our research, observation, and experience emerged a combination of proactive and passive asset management to help clients achieve their goals while managing risk.
