Q: What do you like best about packer park?
A:  I love that has such a ‘neighborhood’ feel to it.  There are always kids playing, people sitting out on their porches, and families getting together.  You do not find that anywhere else except Packer Park.  Some of the most affluent suburbs in the area can not produce the same feel that Packer Park possesses.  I feel both proud and safe in our neighborhood.

Q: What do you like best about your profession?
A:  Every morning a wake up and I am proud to be an Advocate for people’s financial responsibility.  I help people make critical decisions that, more often then not, go unmade without somebody like myself assisting them. Educating people in the areas of financial planning is something that can significantly impact a family.  I truly enjoy helping people through this sometime complex process.  There is no greater feeling in the world then knowing that you helped a family or a business get to their goals and objectives, it is very rewarding.
