“I love helping people build a plan around the one life they have to live. The lasting relationships we continue to build with our clients are why I love coming to work every single day. To create something which started as complex and sometimes unorganized and ends up as a sound plan in which our clients have confidence is incredibly rewarding. I am grateful for the opportunity to earn and maintain the trust and confidence so many have placed in me and our team. While it is a great responsibility, it is equally rewarding.”

The Barron's Top 1,200 State By State Advisor rankings are based on assets under management, revenue generated for the advisors' firms, and the quality of the advisors' practices. Investment performance isn't an explicit factor because clients have varied goals and risk tolerances. The Forbes best in state wealth advisors ranking algorithm is based on industry experience, interviews, compliance records, assets under management, revenue and other criteria by SHOOK Research, LLC, which does not receive compensation from the advisors or their firms in exchange for placement on a ranking. Investment performance is not a criterion.
