No needs are more important than your own and we take great pride in making your needs our top priority. We don't simply work for you but strive to work with you to understand who you are as an individual and as an investor.
Our mission is to help you to define your financial objectives, and then use that knowledge to develop — together — a plan that is tailored to fit your unique needs and preferences and is in your best interest. We’re proud to offer comprehensive financial planning resources, providing you access to tools designed to help evaluate education savings, retirement income planning, and insurance coverage consultation. We are committed to finding solutions tailored to fit you now and as your life unfolds before you.
My top priority is to provide my clients with sound advice beyond investing, giving my attention not only to their investments, but also to their life goals. I devoted the first years of my professional life to building a thorough fundamental understanding of the financial markets through my roles in institutional research and management. I made a choice to apply that knowledge to help guide the lives of individuals and their families and it is very gratifying.
While I was born in Baltimore City, I was raised in the Town of Bel Air where my family was very active in the St. Margaret’s Church community- I as a student and my father who served as the school’s principal and eventually as a Deacon. It was a natural progression for me to attend John Carroll School, where I was a varsity athlete in soccer, basketball, and lacrosse. Eager to pursue a degree as well as to have the opportunity to play high level soccer, I attended Hartwick College in upstate New York where I graduated with a degree in International Relations and Business. I enjoyed a successful college soccer career, reaching the Division I Final Four tournament twice during my career. I was an active member of my fraternity, Delta Sigma Phi, where I took on the role of Treasurer in my first true job in finance!
I continued my studies, and attended the University of Notre Dame where I earned my Masters in Business Administration with a concentration in finance. While at Notre Dame, I helped coach both the men’s and women’s soccer teams and was inducted into Beta Gamma Sigma, a financial honor society of students who are in the top 5% of their respective institutions. In 1990, I began my financial career at Legg Mason and prior to joining Janney in 2016, worked at RBC Wealth Management and, most recently, Wachovia Securities/Wells Fargo Advisors. In 2006, I was named to the National Top Advisors “40 Under 40” list, which appeared in On Wall Street.
I greatly enjoy my work with clients to help them solve financial problems with creative solutions born from a deep bench of knowledge drawn from my experiences over the course of my tenure in the industry. I consider myself an outside of the box thinker, and I find true satisfaction when faced with analyzing complicated financial challenges. My personalized approach to providing financial advice is an extension of my desire to help others achieve the life they envision for themselves, and I feel privileged to help those who choose to work with me.
I am a lifelong resident of the Baltimore area, and I am proud to continue to call it home. Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, I am an avid golfer, a lover of skiing, and I closely follow Ravens football and English Premier League soccer. I am the proud father to two outstanding adult children- Nicholas and Alexandra- both products of Dickenson College.
After earning a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Ohio University in Athens, Ohio, I began my career in financial services with a small, independent firm in 1998. I always planned on pursuing a degree in law, but I found the financial world ripe with new ideas and challenges and enjoyed learning something new each and every day. I quickly recognized my skill in helping to answer the diverse financial questions posed by my clients. After taking a position with a growing team at Merrill Lynch in 1999, I was empowered to develop a comprehensive client service plan for my team, winning the Client Associate of the Year award in 2000. It became my passion to deliver world-class service to all clients.
Never one to believe that you can be “too organized,” I found my ability to consolidate information and formulate a plan to be a huge advantage to advisory clients approaching retirement. In 2013 I found a kindred spirit in Chris Goles, adopting a highly customized approach with a select group of advisory clients to plan for and achieve their own best life. I believe our success as a team can be attributed to nurturing life-long relationships with our clients. Helping our clients live the life they desire became a source of great pride for me both personally and professionally.
A native of the Jersey Shore, I moved to Fallston, MD with my family over 30 years ago and graduated with honors from Fallston High School. I lettered in tennis and was active in student government. You can’t take the Jersey out of the girl, though, and I still make the trip up I-95 to the beach on weekends during the summer! I provide care to my adult parents, both of whom are disabled. The challenge in providing them ongoing care drove me to pursue a Certificate in Long Term Care, allowing me to help clients plan for unexpected health costs, which my parents, unfortunately, did not have the ability to do. Parker is my only human child and he's away at college in Ithaca, NY. My canine child’s name is Nova- a finicky Bichon Frise. When I’m not in the office, I enjoy cooking, traveling, Pilates and spending time outdoors.
