My Background

As a Financial Advisor with Eagle Strategies LLC, a Registered Investment Adviser and an Agent of New York Life Insurance Company, I am able to take a comprehensive approach to helping you address your financial needs today, tomorrow, and into the next generation. Online tools are great, but nothing can take the place of a personal approach in helping our clients achieve their financial goals and objectives.

I provide our clients with the utmost care, compassion, and quality service while providing protection-first holistic advice and guidance, using all the most up-to-date and professional tools available through my professional association with New York Life Insurance Company (New York Life), NYLIFE Securities LLC, member FINRA/SIPC, a Licensed Insurance Agency and Eagle Strategies LLC, NYLIFE Securities and Eagle Strategies are New York Life companies. Helping our clients create, protect, and enjoy their wealth is my ultimate objective.
