A little about me...

My motivation to serve:


I absolutely love my career with New York Life and NYLIFE Securities LLC as a Financial Services Professional, where I’ve served my clients since 2014. Prior to joining New York Life, I served in a very different role. My career was in law enforcement, serving first as a 911 operator and dispatcher for over a decade and then as a sworn law enforcement officer/detective and detective sergeant with the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department for over eleven years. I am also a proud veteran of the United States Marine Corps, following in my father’s footsteps, who was a WWII Marine Corps Ranger. In the Corps, I fine-tuned core values of honor, courage, and commitment, which still guide me today.


Like all of us, I have faced my own challenges throughout life. However, I was very fortunate to receive amazing guidance from my strong family and dynamic mentors when I most needed it. As a result, I have an overwhelming desire to return that service and guidance to others. I regularly contribute to my community as a volunteer, most often serving in educational or advocacy roles.


My educational background:


I earned my BA in Sociology from the University of Florida and later went on to earn my Masters in Business Administration while still in law enforcement. I’ve earned my life, health and annuities license and FINRA Series 6 and 63 securities licenses. Today, I continue to educate myself in the financial arena through the American College of Financial Services, where I'm currently working on completing my Retirement Income Certified Professional (RICP) certification so I can continue to serve my clients in the most effective ways possible, not only leading up to retirement, but also through retirement and into the legacy they want to leave.


How I conduct business with you:


Each and every one of us has our own dreams and our own individual definitions of success and happiness. I always look forward to meeting new clients and their families to get to know each other and to assist them with personalized solutions to long term financial aspirations.


Without a holistic review of your current finances and goals, selling you a random product you think may satisfy a singular need is like going on an unfamiliar road trip without a map. We may or may not successfully get you to your financial destination with the money you’ve invested. This is why knowing the full picture is so important to me. This enables me to see where you’re already well covered or overcovered and where we need to focus moving forward.


Periodic reviews, regular communication to let you know about changes in the economy, and learning from you about any changes in your life that require an adjustment of your plans are all essential. This ensures that you arrive at the end of your journey at the correct destination. Remember, it's my job to help you achieve your unique personal idea of happiness in your own unique way.


Please give me the opportunity to earn your business and serve your financial needs. I assure you that you will find our relationship rewarding and worthwhile.
