 Today's investment climate offers unprecedented opportunities.  At Strategic Financial Services, our mission is to help clients take advantage of those opportunities by providing them with three key tools:

     1.  A clear understanding of their financial goals.

     2.  A well-defined road map for pursuing those goals.

     3.  Ongoing advice to help adjust their roadmap when their needs change. 

For 20 years, I have been committed to providing education and financial planning services to a wide variety of clients. I am passionate in my dedication to my clients’ needs and goals. 

As an independent advisor, I am in the position to remain objective and always keep my clients’ best interests as my priority.  I do not deal in proprietary products and therefore have the ability to advise you impartially on financial products and services. 

I seek to deliver consistent results, add value to my clients' financial well-being and increase satisfaction to enhance their quality of life. 

My success is not only measured by addressing my clients’ financial goals but also by building long term relationships. Regardless of your age, income or personal situation, at Strategic Financial Services we will work with you to define your goals: short term, mid term and long term, and then create and implement a financial plan to help you pursue those goals all the while building a relationship that strives to withstand the test of time. 

Our services cover all areas of financial management, from investment and retirement planning to insurance retirement planning services and wealth distribution.  On our Web site, you'll find valuable information for evaluating your current position and progress toward financial goals.  We offer educational articles that outline financial concepts and highlight products designed to fill in the gaps in your financial strategy.  You'll also find calculators that will help you assess your current and future needs.  Please remember to visit our Web site often, as our content is constantly changing.  For help with your financial management, or for more information on Strategic Financial Services, please contact us today.
