As a Northwestern Mutual Financial Network Representative, I will make the same recommendations for you that I would make for my family if they were faced with similar situations.  I have been helping people like you establish financial security for themselves since 1991.

Your needs are important to me and I will match them with innovative solutions utilizing world-class insurance services and internationally recognized investment products.  I will do my best to protect and provide for those people you care about the most.  I will work hard to build a relationship with you based on trust and integrity, always striving to provide you with the same level of ethical service that I would expect for myself.



Before I can speak intelligently about the products and services that might be appropriate for you and your family, I need to get to know you.  And, before you can feel comfortable sharing your goals and dreams, you need to get to know me.

 I have been part of Northwestern Mutual Financial Network since 1991.  I am a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal Education.

I have earned the Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU) and Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC) designations and the Certified Financial Planner™ (CFP®) certifications.



The Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU) designation has long been recognized as the fundamental and foremost educational credential for life insurance professionals.  Since 1927, more than 94,000 individuals have earned their CLU, helping them build a successful life insurance practice by providing clients with knowledgeable and ethical advice.  For financial representatives, field management, home office personnel, and others involved in providing life insurance products to the public, the CLU designation symbolizes continuing growth and commitment to professionalism.

The Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC) designation focuses on the comprehensive financial planning process as an organized way to collect and analyze information on a client's total financial situation; to identify and establish specific financial goals; and to formulate, implement, and monitor a comprehensive plan to achieve those goals.  The ChFC program provides financial services professionals with in-depth knowledge of the skills needed to perform comprehensive financial planning for their clients.

The Certified Financial Planner™ (CFP®) certification is one of the most recognized financial planning marks in the world.  CFP® certification identifies to the public those individuals who have met rigorous professional standards and have agreed to adhere to the principles of integrity, objectivity, competence, fairness, confidentiality, professionalism, and diligence when dealing with clients.  The certification differs from an educational designation or state license in that it is based upon requirements that have been determined by extensive job analyses of actual practitioners in the field, and therefore, continue to evolve with the profession.  The CFP® certification prepares the financial services professional for a career-long commitment to meeting the ever-changing financial needs of clients.
