This is my second career. My first covered technology and corporate finance, where most problems have black-and-white solutions. Now I combine trust, empathy, and flexibility with financial planning skills to help you realize more intentional outcomes.
I live with my amazing family in Portland, OR. I studied English Literature (I’m a fan of the humanities), have an MBA in Finance, and of course I’ve also completed Financial Planning education.
I love reading, Spotify is on a lot, and I believe in the power of live music. I might ask you about performances you’ve seen. Other constants include coffee, the dog, the ocean, and fitness.
I’m fascinated by how and why we make our choices, large and small, every day.
ENOW MEANS ENOUGH. I WORK WITH PEOPLE, LIKE YOU, WHO WANT TO DEFINE THEIRS.
My goal is to teach you (not lecture you, shame you nor judge you) about the details to build your comfort and confidence around your money. I will help you learn as much or as little as you like, but I will insist that you know enough to make informed decisions.
ENOW Financial clarifies, simplifies and plans financial lives to help people define and reach their financial independence sooner.
We offer trustworthy, meaningful, and personally valuable comprehensive financial planning and investment management services that emphasize defining “enough”, avoiding pitfalls, and finding financial success to Gen X/Y individuals and couples who want a simple, accessible, supportive service.
