Areas of Expertise

Here are my areas of expertise, which I will use to provide you with customized recommendations that will help you plan for your financial future.

  • Retirement Planning
    Perhaps one of the greatest financial challenges you will face in your lifetime is preparing adequately for your retirement. I will help you create a plan that will assess your current financial situation, determine the retirement lifestyle for your future, review the many options available, and put solutions in place to help ensure you achieve the retirement of your dreams.
  • Long Term Care Planning
    After a lifetime of work and proper preparation, a secure retirement can be your reward. That security will only be as strong as your ability to stay healthy. Most people would agree that their most important asset is their health. That is why it's important to ensure that if you are ever faced with an extended illness, you will receive the kind of care you need. Together with our specialists, I'll assist you in determining your long-term care needs and design solutions tailored to your unique situation.
  • Investment Strategies
    Without a coordinated investment strategy, it can be difficult to build an effective investment portfolio that helps meet your financial needs. As a Registered Representative of Northwestern Mutual Investment Services, LLC (NMIS), I can offer you access to a wide range of investment products and services. I will work with you to develop investment solutions aimed at meeting your financial objectives.
  • Qualified Plan Design Assistance
    Sponsoring a qualified plan is a critically important step toward achieving retirement security for you and your employees. Choosing the right plan design elements will allow you to balance your goals for tax deferred wealth accumulation with the cost and complexity involved. Together with our plan specialists, I will help you to evaluate multiple plan design options and understand the impact they will have on you, your employees and the bottom line.
  • Qualified Plan Employee Education
    Qualified plan benefits are most effective when they are thoroughly understood and properly utilized by plan participants. Quality benefits education is not a one-time event but rather a long term program to build awareness, understanding and appreciation. I will work with you to develop and deliver a comprehensive education plan across multiple media to help produce positive results.
  • Qualified Plan Fiduciary Education
    As a retirement plan sponsor you face a sometimes bewildering array of regulations and responsibilities. It is important to find a source of trustworthy information to help you to manage your responsibilities and mitigate the associated risks. Let me help you to understand your options to develop an approach that works for you and your plan.
  • Qualified Plan Benchmarking
    Understanding how your retirement plan compares to industry benchmarks for expenses, performance and design is not only a good business practice, it is becoming a regulatory expectation. Based on our experience and industry resources, I will provide you with comparative data to document a sound due diligence process.
