We commonly work with our clients and their professional advisors, including attorneys and accountants, to create comprehensive wealth management plans designed to make the best use of their wealth today and help ensure its endurance for future generations. We will do the same for you and your family.
My roles in the industry are very clear. I accept responsibility for the financial well-being of individuals who trust my experience and expertise to give them financial solutions. This requires an ongoing involvement in professional education, being consistently engaged with client needs and endorsing a commitment to the concept of integrity in the financial services industry. I ensure that I have access to the best accounting and legal resources to address all the financial concerns of every client.
My career began in the banking industry and paused briefly when I raised my children. I became industry licensed once they were in school and understand the challenges of being a working mother as well as an independent business owner. I joined a private firm in 1998 and became the Branch Manager. In 2009 I moved to Raymond James, where I continued in the lead role of Branch Manager as well as a USA/CDN Cross-Border Discretionary Portfolio Manager. My work ethic and commitment to high standards have led me throughout my life, personally and professionally.
When not at the office, I spend my time with my husband, Doug and two daughters, Sheryl and Susan, who I am proud to have as members of my team at Raymond James.
