    The foundation of my career was built during my years as a public school teacher which gave me the skills I now use to effectively communicate complex and sometimes frustrating financial concepts. I began my financial services career in 1987 specializing in commercial lending, private banking and trust services for Fleet Bank. I joined the  regional advisory firm of Tucker Anthony in 1995, obtained my CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certification in 2003 and then joined UBS in 2007. In 2013 I earned the designation of  Retirement Income Certified Professional (RICP®) from The American College.  I thrive on my work as a planner and feel privileged to be the guardian, manager and cultivator of personal wealth for many wonderful clients.  I strive to contribute time and resources to my community through my volunteer work for many vital cultural and social service organizations.  I divide my time between homes in Maine and Florida, enjoying the outdoor and community activities I so enjoy in both locations.

        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 obtaining my CFP® certification have provided me with the skills and training necessary to help 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 financial advisor.

        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.
