After a long career in senior corporate management, I felt called to share my financial knowledge and wisdom with others. I passionately work with my clients on comprehensive financial strategies, with a particular emphasis on retirement income and tax efficiencies. No two life situations are the same, and my advice will be tailored to you. My wife and I live in Lancaster. We have three adult children (all Thrivent members!) that share our passions for faith, fun and all things Penn State. We are members of Highland Presbyterian Church, and I am on the Board of Lancaster Lebanon Habitat for Humanity. I also enjoy volunteering a Greystone Therapeutic Riding Center, where my wife is an instructor. Most days you can find me on a basketball or tennis court.

I've been in the financial services industry since 2008 with specialization in comprehensive financial planning for families who want to unite their values with their finances. I feel privileged to advise intentional and faithful individuals as they accomplish their personal goals. I work extensively with folks from all walks of life: business owners, executives, engineers, farmers, Pastors...with the common goal of increasing abundance & generosity while reducing stress. I am a native of Lancaster County. My wife & I currently reside in Landisville with our two daughters. We enjoy physical fitness & travel to our favorite vacation spot in Hilton Head, SC. I am an avid sports fan who most closely follows Penn State football, Chelsea Football Club, and all Philadelphia pro sports teams. My family is also an active member of Community Fellowship Church in Lancaster where we lead a Community Group and volunteer in children's ministry.

I love being a part of the team at the Red Rose Group as an office professional. I've been with Thrivent since 2014, and I have a background in management and marketing communications. My family lives in Winter Garden, FL, and we love going on adventures to the local parks, playgrounds and pool. My favorite places to serve are Second Harvest Food Bank and at our next door elementary school.
