When I made the decision to leave the world of corporate accounting in 1995, I was initially seeking independence from the conventional business model and the chance to make a difference. My career with Northwestern Mutual has afforded me the opportunity to actualize both of these goals, and it is my personal and professional relationships - with clients, associates, and the local community - that keep me driven.

As a Wealth Management Advisor, I take a holistic approach to working with my clients in helping them realize the vision for their financial futures. I equip them with the tools to navigate market highs and lows through a systematic process that relies on sound judgment and economic education.

Under my leadership as Managing Director, Northwestern Mutual - Fairview Heights has become a Top 10 District of Northwestern Mutual that provides comprehensive financial planning with an experienced team of specialists who know how to integrate wealth and risk management into a holistic financial strategy.

I am always happy to talk through questions you may have regarding financial planning or if you know someone I should meet regarding joining our team. Feel free to contact me directly:
