I have almost two decades of experience as a Financial Advisor and serve as Vice President at Bridger Financial Group. My primary role within our team is to design optimal financial strategies for our clients.
My life experiences with my grandparents' business, brother's catastrophic illness, and parent's caregiving all inspired me to work on the behalf of others. I strive to help ensure that my clients have secure financial strategies in place for the ups and downs of life. I specialize in advising medical and sales professionals and enjoy helping professionals prepare for the unique challenges and opportunities they face.
I have served as the President for the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors in Pittsburgh from 2015 to 2017. I also am a member of the Estate Planning Council.
In 2021, I was awarded the Five Star Wealth Manger*. Five Star Professional conducts market research to define and promote professional excellence to assist consumers in selecting a service professional.
I hold a B.S. in Music from Duquesne University. In addition to being passionate about financial services, I also enjoy camping with my family, barbecuing, and CrossFit.
CA insurance license number is 0G21714
