ILLINOIS: Dupage County, Kane County

With over 17 years of experience in the Financial Services industry, I aim to provide guidance and independent financial advice to individuals at all stages of life. Whether during accumulation, distribution, legacy, or life quake unexpected transition phases of life, I closely listen to clients to determine their financial goals, lifestyle needs, and concerns.

Then, with tools, strategies, and products, I can provide full-service, long-term financial solutions and be a resource for clients as they navigate the complexities of the financial world. As a Financial Advisor with Ameriprise Financial Services, LLC, I have also obtained the Certified Divorce Financial Analyst® (CDFA®) designation. I can help guide individuals or couples through the financial aspects of the divorce process. I integrate the methodologies used in financial planning into the divorce process by providing financial projections of a proposed settlement to make sure it works now and in the future. This information will help the divorce parties or attorneys make better-informed financial decisions.

As a CDFA® professional, I can help spouses understand the implications of Separate and Marital Property, Property Valuation and Division, Spousal Maintenance, Child Support, Marital Home Affordability, Retirement Plans, Pension Settlement Options, and Tax Planning Strategies.

I am also trained in Family and Divorce Mediation and as a financial neutral in the Collaborative Process.
