Whatever your personal goals may be, I will work together with you, one-on-one, to develop a personalized financial strategy designed to help you pursue your long-term goals.

Whether considering home, health, giving, work, leisure or retirement, you have goals that are important to you.

Our relationship begins by understanding your priorities and what's important to you to help achieve your goals and dreams. I help you with planning for changes that occur in life and providing you with the comfort of knowing your decisions will be supported by personalized advice and the guidance you desire and the care you deserve.

It may be time for a new approach to the journey ahead- one based on what matters most to you and provides you with the advice, guidance and care you desire along the way.  I will assist you and your family along this journey by providing the resources needed to help you connect to a better financial life.

When not in the office, I enjoy traveling and spending time with my family. I also enjoy reading, playing guitar, and caring for migratory birds.

I follow the deep-seated Merrill tradition of participating in the communities we serve. This drives my interest in spending time volunteering with organizations in our community.
