I’m the owner of Wealth Mode Financial Planning.

I help people who are like me: I want to enjoy my life now as much as I can, but without putting my future at risk. I have a lot of goals, dreams, and bucket list items I want to make happen.

I empower my clients to align their money with their personal values, invest right, and use their wealth for good. Basically, living intentionally with your finances. I call that “living in Wealth Mode,” which has a bit more pizazz than “making good financial decisions.”


My clients tend to be smart, hard-working people who often have a good idea of what they should be doing before they get to me. But they recognize that knowing what to do doesn’t always translate to results and success. Plus, it takes a lot of time to be your own advisor as your life becomes more complex.


As an Accredited Financial Counselor (AFC®), I have deep experience helping people understand their own relationship with money and what it means to them. Then I use my knowledge as a trained Certified Financial Planner™ (CFP®) to create your financial plan and utilize the investment and tax strategies that will keep more money in your pocket and build your wealth efficiently. And I believe in providing that service in a transparent, affordable, and unbiased way that is not typical of financial services.


So if you feel like you know what you should be doing with your money, but to some extent it’s not happening or is causing you too much time and stress, let’s work together. I work with people both locally and virtually, so it doesn't matter where you live.

I have a standing offer for a free 30-60 minute in-person or virtual meeting to answer any questions you have about money, investing, or working with me - and I promise there will be no sales pitch. I will talk with you, not at you. Let's just talk, openly and comfortably.
