Holistic & Advocacy-Oriented Financial Planning
Put your money where your values are
It's happened again. This time it was dangerously close to home, at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, just 40 miles from our office. Another senseless loss of young lives to gun violence.

Along with grieving for the families and friends affected by yet another mass shooting, at times like this many ask ...

"What can I do as an individual to help affect change?"

While there is much work needed to move our country towards more sensible gun regulation, there is one positive step you can take right now.

You have the power to make a positive impact on society through your financial decisions with socially responsible investing (SRI) funds.

From funds that do not support gun, ammunition, and tobacco manufacturers— to those that do support environmental conservation, sustainable agriculture, LGBT-supportive companies, or other issues of importance to you—you can position your investments to provide financial returns but also are a natural expression of your core values and beliefs. 

I am passionate about helping clients do well by doing good . It has been at the core of my company's mission from the beginning. And now, more than ever, I am committed to assisting clients with reviewing their portfolios so they are investing from their heart in what really matters to them.

Just give me a call to get the process started. I look forward to hearing what speaks to your heart.
