        Every Journey is Unique

As your advisor, I will focus on helping you live your best life possible with the money you have, while still preparing for tomorrow.  My process is designed to ensure your finances are aligned with your goals and that you have planned for life's transitions.  Each step of the process works toward improving your relationship with money and shifting your mindset to be the owner of your financial decisions. 


Who I Serve


                        Current employees of companies who offer their employees a pension benefit

                Life Stage

                         I specialize in people who are beginning to consider retirement, usually within 10 years

                Nice People

                        I like to work with genuinely nice people with whom we share a mutual respect

                Looking for a trusted advisor

                        My clients have never or have had limited exposure to financial advisors and understand that their financial success is too important to do                           it themselves

Step 1 - Phone meeting

This is a 15 minute call to understand your needs and to ensure my expertise can meet your needs.  

Step 2 - Initial meeting

This is an hour meeting where we discuss your situation to identify your goals and to review your financial situation.  I will describe my one-page financial plan and discuss expectations for next meeting.   

Step 3 - Analysis

I apply my experience, training and knowledge to establish a one-page financial plan for you to implement.  We will also answer the below questions:

  • Do you have enough income to sustain your current and future lifestyle?
  • Are you overpaying your taxes?
  • Can we reduce threats to your portfolio?
  • Can your portfolio be improved?

Step 4 - Strategy Meeting

During this meeting, we will review your one-page financial plan.   We will answer any questions you have from the initial meeting and from the one-page financial plan and discuss my fees. 

At the end of the meeting, we will discuss my fees and you will have the opportunity to sleep on your decision on whether we are a fit to work together.  

While I want to work with you, if you decide that this is not a good fit, I wish you all the best and every success. 

Building a Plan to Help You

My Story

I grew up in South Dakota with my parents and 4 siblings, and I now reside in Lakeville, MN with my family.  My parents taught us the value of money and instilled the fundamental philosophy of spending less than you make.  Throughout my life, I have been able to build on that philosophy which has enabled my family and I to enjoy a full and complete life.  

The reason I changed careers to the world of a wealth advisor was to share my story and help others develop good money habits so that their relationship with money would be a foundation for which they could live a complete life.  The guiding principal I use every day is that money is a tool which is used to help you live your best life possible.   By using this principal in everything I do, I have been able to help my clients align their lives with their purpose.  I have first hand seen how this approach has helped my family and my clients live a happy life, which is why I find my work so energizing and fulfilling.

   Getting Started is Easy

While every conversation is different, you should expect to cover some general information and get a sense of what it’s like to collaborate with me.

To help prepare for this meeting, you should have a basic idea of your current financial picture and financial goals. How are things now? Do you have any concerns? What do you hope to accomplish in the next few years and longer term?
