    Financial Advisor

Your Partner in Financial Services

I bring over 15 years of insurance and financial services industry experience to my clients. I have a specific interest in financial and estate planning, investment management and risk and liability management and strive to add great value for my clients within these areas.

Creating the right financial plans and investment strategies for you begins with understanding who you are and what’s important to you. Far more than a simple Q&A, my process begins with truly getting to know you – your values, hopes and concerns. I’ll engage in a conversation about your current financial situation, your priorities and your vision for the future. And this line of communication will stay open once I’ve built and implemented your comprehensive, personalized solutions so we can ensure they remain on track for the long term.

Where You May See Me Around Town

Most of the time, you’ll find me tagging along with my three boys on one adventure after another. We’re usually hauling bikes, footballs, basketballs, hockey sticks, scooters and pretty much any other type of sports equipment from fields to trails. If I get a few moments to myself, you’ll almost always find me on a gravel road in West Michigan enjoying the outdoors on my bike or hiking the woods of Northern Michigan.
