Financial Professional, Mediator

As a CPA and a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst, my practice is dedicated to divorce financial mediation and consulting. It is important that both parties in a divorce understand the long-term effect of financial decisions made today. What appears good initially may not be beneficial in the long-term. There may be negative tax or cash flow consequences. I am committed to helping my clients make more informed financial decisions
