I’m a financial planner who is passionate about helping people feel less stressed and more confident managing their money. I believe everyone deserves to feel financially secure and that money is a tool to live the life you want. Although talking about money is my idea of fun, outside of work I also enjoy crafting, going to Broadway musicals, playing board games/puzzles/escape rooms, traveling, and hanging out with friends/family/my cats.

A social issue I care about is...

Financial literacy. It is so important, but it's difficult for people to learn because it isn't common sense, it's not taught in schools, and talking about money is taboo. Money is one of the top stressors for so many people, and I believe everyone deserves to feel financially secure.

My pet is...

Two cats: Bonnie and Clyde, who were found in a wall before I adopted them. They are polydactyl (they have thumbs!) and are scared of strangers. Bonnie enjoys walking outside on her harness (as long as other people aren't around), Clyde enjoys playing fetch (although he doesn't always remember to bring back what he's supposed to be fetching), and they both enjoy cat grass and snuggles.

A unique thing about me is...

I took the H&R Block Income Tax Course and worked as a tax preparer part-time for a few years for fun.
