I grew up in northeast Ohio in a small community on the shores of Lake Erie, and graduated from The Ohio State University in 1983, where I also lived in the Stadium Scholarship Dormitory. I've spent my entire professional career in the financial services industry. Today, Financial Planning is at the core of the services I offer. I enjoy helping people take ownership of their finances and helping them understand options so they can make educated decisions. I've also never felt more passionately that people, now more than ever, need to work with a trusted advisor who will help them navigate the many decisions they need to address in the most optimal and beneficial way.
