Where I Come From:
I was born, raised and married in Spokane, WA where I spent the first 28 years of my life. In 1991, we moved our family to Mesa, AZ, where we spent the next 28 years building a financial services business and raising a family. In 2019, our family decided to establish our primary residence in a small mountain community in northern Utah, called Mountain Green, to more fully enjoy the outdoors and quality time with my family. Currently, I divide my time between our offices in Arizona and Utah.
I am the youngest of six children and was raised in a household in which my business owner father suffered a debilitating illness at an early age. As a young child, I watched him go from a very active man to the confinement of a wheelchair and shortly thereafter a nursing home. My mother was left to raise the kids, assume financial responsibilities and instill a work ethic in her children. In my mid 20’s, my father passed away because of his illness. It was at this time, I was able to see the fruits of the planning he did early in his life. Shortly after his passing, I entered the financial services industry with a desire to help others financially secure their now and their future.
