Professionally, I see myself as a financial coach or navigator. My role is to help clients navigate the sea of confusion that is personal finance. I have worked hard to develop my experience and assemble the kinds of tools that are needed to help my clients with a variety of financial challenges related to divorce including funding college tuition, managing cash flows, reestablishing credit and building efficient portfolios for long-term investing goals.
I am a five-star rated, board-certified financial planning professional who has over 20 years of experience coaching individuals and businesses on ways to improve and protect their personal or business bottom line.
I earned my Master of Science degree in Finance (MSF, Financial Planning concentration) from Bentley College with high distinction. I am also an honors graduate of the University of Massachusetts – Lowell and active with alumni and advisory groups on campus currently.
Professionally, I hold both the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER ™ and CHARTERED RETIREMENT PLANNING COUNSELOR ™ designations.
I have experience with tax preparation and estate planning related to divorce.
I am a member of the National Association of Tax Professionals, the Financial Planning Association (FPA), the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA), and have completed training in Collaborative Practice as well as advanced courses in Divorce Financial Analysis from the Institute of Divorce Financial Analysts.
In the community I served as an executive officer of the Greater Merrimack Valley Estate Planning Council and am an active member of the Financial Planning Association. I grew up in Greater Lawrence and Methuen and now live in Amesbury with my wife, Kristin, a Registered Dietitian, and toddler sons, Spencer and Zachary and daughter Sabrina. I am an avid road cyclist.
