Team intro

Our mission is to help our clients do well—as they define it—so they can do good.

Our story

Initially, when Luke and I chose careers in personal finance it was because it aligned with our skills and gifts. This was a practical decision. But, several decades later, we realized that the reason we stay in this career has more to do with the heart than anything practical. Yes, our education and advanced designations enable us to create solid financial plans for our clients. But it is the joy we experience when we can help families make their dreams a reality that inspires us every day. Our motivation is to see the smiles and sighs of relief when we can reveal they can indeed afford to send their kids to college … or that they can retire one day … or create a significant gift for their beloved children and charities they care so much about. This is beyond rewarding.

It is an honor to be relied on with so much responsibility. We realize every family is unique and we want to be able to bring their personalized strategy to fruition.
