Our Process - What We Do & How We Help

Whether our members are nearing retirement, changing jobs, experiencing the loss of a loved one, protecting an estate or simply beginning to consider a financial future, we work collaboratively in the following process:

Goal Determination

In a confidential setting, we listen and understand our members’ desires and resources.

Plan Development

To provide recommendations, we utilize subject matter expertise, advanced technology and non-proprietary investment and insurance choices made available through our relationship with LPL Financial.

& Monitoring

At our members’ discretion, the plan is enacted. We provide technology access necessary for assessment of success and a commitment toward 24 hour responsiveness. Further, we ask for a commitment of regular face-to-face reviews according to our members’ desired timeframe.

I am grateful to have provided investment and planning advice to individuals, families and business owners since 2007.  In 2012, I achieved the credential as a Certified Financial Planner™ in order to provide the greatest benefit to my clients. 

Prior to my career as a financial planner, I taught high school advanced placement economics and American history while also serving as both a head football and track and field coach.  

I have been married to my wife, Christina, since June 21, 1997 and we are blessed to be the parents of two young adults.  I serve on the elder board for Creekside Christian Church in St. Johns, Florida and also as an assistant varsity track coach at Bartram Trail High School. 

I welcome the opportunity to serve you.

I have had the privilege of providing guidance and assistance in all aspects of financial services to individuals, business entities and families for over 35 years. In 1993, I found that my passion lied in my ability to build relationships by working one on one to develop personalized plans to achieve one’s financial goals.  I obtained insurance and securities licensure in 1999.   

I am a Tallahassee native, very fortunate to have two successful adult children, Lance and Tiffany. I enjoy involvement in various health, educational and youth organizations which allows me to connect with the needs of my community.

I would appreciate an opportunity to assist you.

I enjoy my role as a trusted Financial Advisor and Planner to learn about my member’s unique careers, their family life, hobbies, and future aspirations.
