My Story

I grew up on a ranch in the shadow of Mt. Shasta in northern California. Each year, as a part of the 4-H program I raised a steer and brought it to the county fair for auction and the money from the sale helped pay for college—and a new saddle.

Key Moments: Leaving the Big Money wealth management firms behind. The Big Money firm was not about planning or helping people it was about generating revenue for the firm. There was a better way.

Becoming A Financial Planner

A self-proclaimed financial “nerd”, the planning procession satisfies my analytical mindset, and it is thoroughly rewarding to work directly with families to help them reach financial independence. My cousin, Jill Porterfield CPA, has joined me at Fairchild Capital and we soon realized we could do even more for our clients by combining our unique perspectives and complementary skill sets.

My “Why”:

Everyone has a different path with their lives and money. Some are so passionate about their profession they may slow down but never stop. Others are ready to transition as soon as possible. I am energized by these stories and helping families make the best financial decisions.
