I’m already earning a living doing what I love and taking the steps necessary to move forward.

There’s not much humanity in Finance, if you think of all the news headlines that have splashed across our newspapers and T.V. screens in the last few years. Economic woes, unstable and volatile markets along with the creation of securities that no one seems to understand have left Main Street and Wall Street even further apart and less trusting of each other than ever before.

My clients may not be destitute and they may go on luxurious vacations and never worry about where their next meal is coming from, but still they need us, they need our trust and honesty.

My fiduciary responsibility to my clients comes first before anything else. They come to us for advice about everything that affects their finances. They seek out input before the purchase of a home, before the purchase of a new hearing aid or before the refinancing of business loans. It’s not glamorous, but the implicit trust placed on us is something to be cherished.

I am currently seeking a business degree at Penn State University because I want to expand and build on the knowledge I’ve already accumulated.

I may not be saving lives or ending world hunger, but what I do is important and needed and I’m proud to be a part of it. I’m proud to bring integrity back into a world that seems to have lost it.
