There is nothing more important to me than helping people obtain their goals. With over 40 years of experience in the financial industry, I have been dedicated to guiding members of my community through the various stages of their financial lives, witnessing their journey toward achieving their own picture-perfect retirement.

I was raised in a local family that valued hard work and serving others. Currently residing in Clifton Park with my husband, John, we have successfully raised our three children, who are now adults, married, and parents themselves. Our lives are now further enriched by the presence of 8 grandchildren, bringing joy and happiness to our family.

Having obtained my CPA license, I spent the first half of my career assisting both individual and small business clients with tax and accounting matters. Following numerous tax seasons, I found inspiration in helping people navigate the complex financial stages of life. With this goal in mind, I transitioned my career to become a Financial Planner in 2003.

Financial phases can range from setting up your first retirement plan to tackling complex and confusing scenarios such as funding children’s college education, planning for aging parents, making long-term care decisions, business planning, and implementing estate planning strategies. As you navigate these paths in life, my objective is to serve as your financial guide, assisting you in achieving your goals.

When I’m not working with clients, you will find me training for my next triathlon, kayaking, biking, or doing yoga. I also find it rewarding to mentor and inspire other women to accomplish their goals. I have been a mentor for the Freihofer’s Run for Women for many years, training hundreds of women and helping them complete their first 5K. For fun, I train and compete with a local dragon boat team, “Dragon’s Alive,” just to keep things interesting. My husband and I are avid hikers and have completed 35 of the 46 Adirondack High Peaks. We also enjoy traveling and exploring other countries and cultures.

In 2022, I completed my 200-hour yoga certification to help people remain healthy and strong, incorporating mind, body, and spirit. Finally, on the off chance that I am sitting down, I am most likely watching my favorite baseball team – the NY Mets or playing with my grandchildren.
