My favorite vacation destination is Disney World in Florida. I take a trip there annually.

Senior Manager, CPA, CFP®, CIMA


I specialize in helping high-net-worth individuals and their families, as well as business owners, with unique, sophisticated life insurance solutions that allow them to achieve their long-term financial goals. My clients appreciate that I’m committed to helping them make the right decisions — focusing on efficiency and cost minimization.

In the more than 15 years I’ve been with Plante Moran, I’ve worked as an auditor, an investment consultant, and, now, a life insurance specialist within the wealth transfer practice. I’m fortunate that every day I get to do what I enjoy — help successful individuals and families reach their financial goals. It’s gratifying to assist these hard-working people as they carve out their future financial stability.

I’m a member of the AICPA, the Financial and Estate Planning Council of Metropolitan Detroit, and the Society of Financial Service Professionals. I received my B.B.A. from the University of Michigan–Dearborn.

Outside of work, I stay active by being involved with different sports. I especially enjoy spending time with my family and my son.
