After graduating from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a BS in Business Administration, I began my career in the financial services industry in 1991. My original goal was to work towards an MBA, but I soon realized that my greatest joy came from working with clients. A longtime wrestling coach, I already knew how much I loved helping others achieve their goals. With finance, I realized I could use my coaching experience in my profession, and help clients achieve their financial goals. Since that realization, I changed my life and never looked back. In 1996, I reorganized my practice and became affiliated with Northwestern Mutual.  In 2012, I completed my Masters degree in Financial Services from the American College. In 2014, I was named NAIFA-NC Advisor of the Year and added Fee-Based Planning to my reportoire. Today, I am proud of my team and the work that we do to improve the financial lives of our clients.

Professional Organizations:


I have been a leader & member of the National Association of Insurance and Fincial Advisors (NAIFA). The mission of NAIFA is to advocate for a positive legislative and regulatory environment, enhance business and professional skills, and to promote the ethical conduct of our members. I believe this is critical to better serve clients and the industry. Currently I serve as a trustee, travelling to DC and other states when necessary to ensure that the interests of clients are protected.


I am also a part of Leading Edge Healthcare Professionals, a diverse group whose members specialize in working with physicians and dentists to help their practice improve and grow. Currently,  I am serving on the board as Treasurer for the organization.

Professional Markets:

I work with many diverse professional clients but specialize in the following markets:

  • Medical professionals:

Insurance and disability planning, retirement strategizing and cash flow analysis. 

  • Business owners:

Growth and succession planning, asset strategies, and employee benefits
