My specialties are financial planning, financial literacy education, and investment advice, but over my 30-year career, I've been able to help people fix problems with money, construction projects, meetings, sentence construction, culinary disasters, and academic difficulties.

I help clients using my knowledge, experience, and hard work...although I like to think that our working together has its own magic. My work as a financial literacy educator, financial planner, investment advisor, professor, teacher, copy-editor, writer, presenter, negotiator, researcher, and office manager in a diverse cross section of business, educational, and government organizations has helped me gain the depth of knowledge needed to advise my clients in all aspects of sound financial planning and investment. I have been described as a fast, cheerful, flexible worker who rapidly resolves unexpected problems and project difficulties. I manage work quality and time based on guidelines provided and use my talents to provide customers with top-notch service.…show more
