About Us

The most important part of any journey is that first step. That's why here in our team we talk about your aspirations and encourage you to ask questions about issues that matter most to you, so we can get the right direction from the start. For corporations, this can be a simple exchange of outsourcing various investment tasks for lower cost than in-house processing, but a lot of what worries individuals can be front of mind for corporate committees too.

What is it keeping you up at night? Which child needs education funding and how can you help them?

We pride ourselves with good listening skills, and with the full resources of Merrill Lynch Wealth Management, continued education, certificates and degrees, along with the banking convenience of Bank of America, we will work with you to develop strategies that are designed to help you reach your goals. If you're going to take that first step in asking for advice, who better to help you begin? We look forward to our first discussion. We are here to help guide you and we will do our best to take the time to make sure you feel we are listening.
