Wealth Manager - Midland Office
“Through years of public practice as a CPA, I learned the importance of proper financial planning in not only income tax planning, but also retirement planning, insurance, asset management and estate planning as well. I enjoy applying these planning skills to help you stay on track and meet your financial goals. ”
