    Michael started his career as a Financial Advisor in 2002 with the belief that a financial planning-based, goals-oriented approach to wealth management was needed. From inception, his business has focused on all aspects of wealth management concerning families and corporate professionals aged 35-65 including insurance/risk management, portfolio performance, retirement and education planning and liabilities management-especially home mortgages. 

    Prior to Financial Services, Michael spent 10 successful years in the information technology sector and riding the peaks and valleys of that sector's (1990’s) rollercoaster has left some healthy scars on his outlook towards risk and career planning. As clients consider their peak earning years, competitive employment offers and impact on family and planning efforts, these experiences have proven valuable to Michael and his clients.

    He holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Georgetown University and a MBA from Washington University in Saint Louis. He practices an advisory-based business and thus holds himself to the higher-than-industry standard of a fiduciary.

    Michael lives in Saint Louis with his wife Katie and four children, ages 14 through 27 who keep him busy in a variety of pursuits including a healthy dose of coaching athletic teams, watching athletic events and driving to/from the practices for said athletic events. He enjoys golf, Cardinals baseball and singing the occasional Neil Diamond song if pressed into service.

            Courtney began her financial services career in 1992 as a Client Sales Associate at another firm in Kansas City. After moving to St. Louis and completing her MBA at St. Louis University, she eventually moved to the bond trading floor as a market analyst with A.G. Edwards. She temporarily “retired” in 2001 to stay at home and raise her two kids. Courtney returned to work in 2014 with UBS Financial Services. She is committed to helping clients manage and protect the nest eggs they have worked a lifetime to build.

            Courtney and her husband Bill are the parents of two young adults and are anxiously awaiting the “empty nest” phase, whenever that may happen.  Outside of work, Courtney enjoys exercising, socializing with friends and traveling.  Courtney and her family live in Webster Groves, MO.
