How I can help you

I have had numerous experience during my nearly 40 years of professional employment.  Right out of college I managed a retail store that grew in size to #3 in a chain of 360 stores.  Depending on the season I managed between 6 and 15 employees.  I have advertising and marketing-related experience from various points of view, including the perspective of a medium-sized manufacturing company where I oversaw the execution and management of their press relations, cataloging and print advertising to the perspective of a Fortune 200 company and the legal-related issues that can arise in their product claims.  I have worked in a large law firm and managed complex litigation, including assistance at trial.  In my present capacity, I assist individuals and small business owners with a high level of direct service through goals-based financial and investment planning and thoughtful advice.
