My Clients

My clients are individuals and families with complex, multifaceted financial needs. Both pre-retirement and post-retirement, they face sophisticated challenges involving income, wealth preservation and growth, tax considerations and legacy planning.

My expertise is providing a values-based approach to financial planning that takes that complexity and results in comprehensive, cohesive solutions. When clients have a plan in place that truly reflects their values, they are more inspired to put it to work and maintain it over time. The result is greater confidence in and peace of mind about what the future holds.

My Background

I have been recognized as top investment producer for over a decade and have qualified for Northwestern Mutual's Forum — which recognizes individuals for an outstanding year of helping clients plan for and achieve financial security — six times. I have also been been recognized by Forbes as a Top Women Wealth Advisors Best-In-State for 2022, Barron's Top 100 Women Financial Advisors for 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021, Forbes Top Women Wealth Advisors in 2020 and 2021, and Working Mother as one of the Top Wealth Advisor Moms for 2021.

I’m a former chair of the Financial Representative Association Annuity Committee and was Northwestern Mutual's top annuity producer in 2017 and 2018.
