After working for 10 years in the automobile industry, I wanted to help others reach their financial goals and dreams and I wanted to work for myself. I have always enjoyed working with people, and have always had an interest in the financial markets. After looking at a number of financial service companies, Northwestern Mutual was the answer for me and I have thoroughly enjoyed the associations I have developed over the years with such a fine company. In 1999, I earned my Chartered Life Underwriter designation and in 2001, I earned my Chartered Financial Consultant designation from The American College in Pennsylvania. I have also earned the Certification for Long Term Care and I currently hold the position of Long Term Care Specialist for the southern California and southern Nevada area since 2007. In 2010 I continued my investment education to become a financial advisor so that I can provide ongoing wealth management advice.
