Areas of Expertise

Here are my areas of expertise, which I will use to provide you with customized recommendations that will help you plan for your financial future.

  • Disability Income Planning
    Disability income insurance protects one of your most valuable assets - your ability to earn an income. A disability could suspend or terminate your income for an extended period of time. It may force you to close your business. With my expertise in disability income planning, I am able to recommend disability income insurance products from Northwestern Mutual.
  • Education Funding
    With the cost of higher education rising faster than the rate of inflation, many families wonder how to prepare for this expense. I specialize in education funding and can help you explore the right options for saving the money you need to send your children to college.
  • Financial Planning
    Long-term financial security doesn't happen by chance. Many things in life can have an impact - positive or negative - on your financial well-being. I'm here to help you take control of your future. Together we'll identify your most important goals and dreams, and build and implement a financial plan to help you achieve them. And because life is unpredictable, we'll monitor your progress on a regular basis to ensure your plan evolves as your needs and the situation around you changes.
  • Life Insurance Planning
    Many people realize that they need life insurance. And, many people have opinions about what type of life insurance they prefer. I regularly help people determine how much life insurance they need and what types or combination of types of coverage are best suited to help them further their own objectives. A well constructed life insurance policy can be a valuable part of your overall financial security plan. I will help you look at this in the context of your overall financial security plan and help you determine what makes the most sense for your particular situation.
  • Special Needs Planning
    Planning for a dependent with special needs can be complicated. It is recommended that you work with a team of experts - including an attorney, a financial professional and a social service professional. As a key member to the special needs team, I provide solutions for families with special needs.
