Financial Professional

My purpose is to provide education and support to bring clarity to your divorce so that you can move forward confidently. Life satisfaction is at the heart of my work as a divorce financial planner. I strive to deliver creative solutions and strategies to optimize your financial situation with patience and support, which is particularly important when one spouse has less financial understanding than the other. This helps you to arrive at a settlement that is fully understood by all with a clear view of your financial future.
