        My career in the financial services industry began in 1995.  More than a decade later I joined UBS Financial Services Inc.  My early years focused on the complexities of equity compensation and benefits offered by employers.  Through this experience I developed my passion for helping people determine the best financial strategies for their personal situation. 

        Having a Bachelor of Science degree in Education from the University of Maine and earning my CFP designation have provided me with the skills and training necessary to engage my clients at every level and stage of their financial progress.  I believe a comprehensive and flexible financial plan is essential and requires a commitment to hard work and consistent communication. I am dedicated to helping my clients realize their dreams.  By frequently attending financial planning conferences, seminars and education workshops I bring the most current ideas and strategies to my work as a planner.

        I am happily married to my high school sweetheart, Scott and enjoy spending time with our young daughter, Samantha and our Black Labrador Retriever, Ranger.  I am involved in several local non profit organizations that support the education of children, a creative culture and a thriving economic region.  In my spare time I enjoy reading, traveling and staying physically fit.
