I acquired the Certified Executor Advisor designation in 2017 in order
to fill the gap in my knowledge; several of my clients were dealing with the responsibilities
and duties of being Executors. Having
this designation has enriched my Estate Planning advice, and benefited my
clients further by having their affairs in order. This results in better harmony, especially in
blended family situations.
Having over 12 years of experience as an independent financial advisor, I
have a passion for helping clients accumulate wealth, preserving that wealth
and providing effective income strategies in retirement. My clients know they can depend on me and my
network of specialists to help solve their challenges and take advantage of
opportunities they may encounter while they realize their goals and dreams.
I specialize in working with individuals, families and business owners
whether they are in retirement or will be making that transition in the next 5 –
say the hallmark of my business is my close communication with each client and
my frankness to their concerns.”
