There is nothing more important to me than helping people obtain their goals. I have worked in the financial industry for over 35 years, guiding members of my community throughout the various stages of their financial lives, and watching them attain their own picture-perfect retirement.
I grew up locally in a family that valued hard work and serving others. My husband John and I currently reside in Clifton Park where we raised our 3 children, who are now adults, married and parents themselves. We are now blessed to have 4 grandchildren who bring joy and happiness to our lives. I am a proud graduate of Siena College (BBA- Accounting) and the University of Albany (MS-Accounting- Taxation).
After obtaining my CPA license, I spent the first half of my career assisting both individual and small business clients with tax and accounting matters. After far too many tax seasons, I felt inspired to help people navigate the complex financial stages of life. Based on this goal, I joined AXA Advisors in 2003 as a financial planner and have been one of the founding partners of Sequoia Financial Group since 2011. Financial phases can be as simple as setting up your first retirement plan, or as complex and confusing as funding children’s college education, planning for aging parents, long term care decisions, business planning, and estate planning. As you navigate these paths in life, my objective is to serve as your financial guide to help you achieve your goals.
When I’m not working with clients, you will find me training for my next triathlon or mentoring and inspiring other women. My husband and I are avid hikers and have completed 35 of the 46 Adirondack High Peaks. Finally, on the off chance that I am actually sitting down, I am most likely watching my favorite baseball team- the NY Mets, playing with my grandchildren or reading a good book.
