I’m the owner of Wealth Mode Financial Planning.

I help people who are like me: those who want to raise a family without sacrificing their bucket list items. 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 sounds a lot cooler than “making good financial decisions.”


As an Accredited Financial Counselor (AFC®), I have deep experience helping people understand their own relationship with money and master the basics, if necessary. 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 way that has not been available to young families in the past.


My clients tend to be smart, hard-working, middle-class people who are pretty savvy with their finances before they get to me. But they recognize that knowledge alone doesn’t translate automatically to behavior or success, and that it takes a lot of time to be your own advisor as your life becomes more complex.


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 across the country! I offer a free 30-60 minute in-person or virtual meeting to just discuss anything you need, like understanding what it would be like to work together or giving you a few pointers if you have financial questions.
