About Lance
Lance started his career in Janney's Ligonier office in 1993. Just 3 years later he became the youngest Branch Manager ever appointed at Janney. Since then, Lance has been recognized multiple times for his dedication to clients, earning the firm's most prestigious honor "Financial Advisor of the Year" in 2005. He was also selected to participate in Janney's CEO Roundtable for his success as Branch Manager.

Lance focuses his practice on making financial recommendations to clients that consider their individual circumstances. After defining each client's objectives, risk tolerance, and time horizon, he uses this information to determine any areas of issue or concern, identify opportunities and make informed recommendations to his clients that are aligned with their goals. Years of experience in both bull and bear markets have taught Lance that high quality, dividend paying stocks can establish a foundation to many portfolios, depending on individual circumstances.

Lance prides himself on consistently exceeding client expectations. Nearly 20 years into his career, he is still the first to arrive at the office and the last to leave. Lance graduated magna cum laude from Clarion University with a Bachelor's Degree in Finance. He earned a M.B.A. from Clarion and holds a FINRA Series 7 (General Securities), Series 66 (Uniform State Securities), Series 9/10 (General Securities Supervisor), and Life, Health, and Disability Insurance Licenses in multiple states. 

Lance enjoys anything involving nature and in his free time can be found on the farm that he shares with wife Heather.
