About Me

After working in the financial industry in San Francisco for over twenty years, I realized that guiding women to make better financial and life decisions was my professional calling. Upon moving to Greensboro, I continue to empower women to help them realize and fulfill their dreams through thoughtful, comprehensive financial planning and decision making.
